Jannik Sinner could have slept on the court. Victorious at 2:37 a.m. over Mackenzie McDonald on Wednesday evening at the Rolex Paris Masters, the Italian plays again this Thursday in the fourth rotation, that is to say around 4:00 p.m. This leaves him with barely fifteen hours of rest between the two matches. On X (ex-Twitter), Casper Ruud was outraged.
“Well done ATP. This is the best way to help one of the best players in the world recover, writes the Norwegian, eliminated by Francisco Cerundolo on Wednesday in the second round. What joke !"
Since the start of the tournament, numerous criticisms have emerged regarding the organization. Scheduled for 7:30 p.m., the night sessions started much later during the first three days, leaving ticketed supporters outside the Accor Arena in Bercy. And forcing some players to fight until the end of the night.
