Mauresh: "Swiatek is clearly the favorite"


Amelie Mauresmodirector of Roland Garros, gave an interview to Eurosport to assess the current situation of the tournament which starts this Sunday. In it he mentions the favoritism of Iga Swiatek as the main point.

From what Iga has been showing us in recent months, he is clearly the favorite. I think we are seeing this new generation emerge. Swiatek, Naomi Osaka if she can find her consistency at the highest level, Ons Jabeur who also has a completely different game. “

The French player believes women’s tennis is entering a new dynamic, with a variety of play styles that go beyond the flat shots that have marked her in recent years. “I hope the viewers will appreciate Roland Garros. Women’s tennis has been criticized for several years because of its stereotypical style of play. I think a new era will begin“, Said the former French player.

Swiatek will need to handle the pressure of being a favorite, a situation Mauresmo also values. “The pressure of being a tennis player is something I personally felt when I was playing. Although I don’t think it’s as bad as it is now, especially since there are no social networks ”, he assesses.“ This issue is more present now. There are players who are sometimes overly touched by what is happening outside. So. it’s about creating a kind of bubble and players doing it more and more with their teams“, he analyzes.

Mauresmo also reviewed one of the changes to the current edition of Roland Garros, the management of players ’press conferences. “One, now we will have a mixed zone for players who don’t enter the press room much. Sometimes two or three people so pretty heavy and pretty empty. We wanted to do something more dynamic, more sociable, ”he said.

This is not the only change in this matter. “This year too we have moderators in the press room to keep the players uncomfortable if there are always the same questions, to say ‘well, I think he already answered the question, we move on to the next topic, etc.,’ “he said.” So that’s kind of a help. This is not to censor the press, but to show a bit of common sense at some point to move forward. The post-match for the players will be more seamless, ”he predicted.
