Russian tennis player Diane Schneider said she was surprised by the paid service for swiping rackets at adult Grand Slam tournaments.
In the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) rankings of November 27, the 19-year-old Russian is ranked 89th. The best result of the season is 60th position.
“I think it has to do with the rackets and the weight. At Wimbledon or Roland Garros, this service costs around 20 euros or 17 pounds – the tournament does not cover this. If you translate into Russian rubles, two thousand. Very expensive. At other Grand Slam tournaments, you can swipe five rackets for free. The funny thing is that I only have four with me!
Your own locker like Taylor Fritz’s number 69? There isn’t one yet. During the tour everyone already knows and says hello. Ons Jabeur, Coco Gauff, Maria Sakkari, Haddad-Maya can easily come and shake hands. The judges also know what is generally great and makes life easier,” Schneider was quoted as saying by “Championship”.
