The news of the postponement of Roland Garros one week later than expected is already beginning to generate reactions in the tennis world and one of the first to speak out has been the French tennis player Alizé Cornet.

In statements collected by the newspaper L'Équipe after a match at the Volvo Car Open in Charleston Cornet, she was surprised by the Grand Slam decision and charged hard against the Minister of Sports, Roselyne Bachelot. "As Sports Minister she is a calamity. I have nothing against her but she only makes bad decisions for sports"

Cornet assures that it understands the decision made by Roland Garros, but believes that this could affect to some extent the players and the calendar of the ATP and WTA circuits. "The decision has been selfish and we will suffer it in the calendar. I understand that these are not easy times for the tournament, but they should think more about the players and the calendar and, especially, in all the tournaments that will be affected."
