Coco Goff (USA), ranked 3rd in the women’s tennis world, expressed her opposition to the ‘early morning match’ controversy that recently arose at the French Open.

In an interview on the 3rd (Korean time), Goff said, “If the game ends at 3 a.m., I have to go to bed at 5 a.m. at the earliest or 7 a.m. at the latest. It’s not good for the players’ health, and it creates an unfair situation depending on the next schedule.” He said.

At the French Open, the second major tournament of the season being held in Paris, France, Novak Djokovic’s (No. 1, Serbia) third round match ended at 3:07 a.m. local time.

The third round of the men’s singles between Djokovic and Lorenzo Musetti (30th place, Italy) started at 10:37 p.m. local time and was a close battle of 5 sets for 4 hours and 29 minutes.

The third round between Djokovic and Musetti became the slowest match in French Open history.

Goff said, “Even if the game ends at 3 o’clock, considering the time for interviews, showers, massages, etc., you can sleep at 5 o’clock at the earliest or 7 o’clock at the latest. This is not good for the player’s health and also affects the fairness of the next game because the routine is broken.” “He said.

Tennis, where match times vary widely, is often controversial due to the ‘all-night schedule’ where matches last until dawn, even in comprehensive competitions such as the Olympics. 메이저사이트

In particular, this year’s French Open’s schedule was pushed back due to rain at the beginning of the tournament, making it difficult to postpone the match between Djokovic and Musetti to the next day.

Goff said it would be difficult for some customers to buy tickets for night games in advance, but it would be worth considering preventing new games from starting after a certain time.

Carlos Alcaras (Spain), ranked third in the world in men’s singles, also said, “It is not easy for the body to recover after a match like this.”

Djokovic finished the third round at 3 a.m. on the 2nd, local date, and his fourth-round opponent Francisco Cerundolo (27th, Argentina) finished the third round on the afternoon of the 1st.

The round of 16 match between Djokovic and Cerundolo is scheduled to begin on the afternoon of the 3rd, local date. 안전 슬롯사이트
