“We deserve better, 10 evening matches took place without the participation of women.” Jabeur criticized the Roland Garros schedule

Tunisian tennis player Ons Jabeur said French Open organizers should improve the match schedule because players don’t deserve to play early in the morning and late in the evening.

The tournament’s women’s quarterfinal matches begin at 11:00 a.m. local time. The third round match between Serbian Novak Djokovic and Italian Lorenzo Musetti ended at 3:07.

Jabeur lost to American Cori Gauff in the quarterfinals of Roland Garros, which started at 11 a.m.

– I have something to say about this. As you said, 10 evening matches took place without the participation of women. I don’t expect the women to play in the evening, but to be honest, playing a quarter-final at 11 o’clock is tough. We deserve to play here this afternoon. More people will watch us and the stadiums will be full.

I really don’t understand all these subtleties, but it’s the same for men. Playing so late, after midnight, is not very good. We’ve already seen Novak struggle with his knee. And that’s because he couldn’t recover well. I think all players, men and women, deserve better. We deserve a better schedule,” Jabeur said according to ESPN.

The French Open will end on June 9.
