Nicolas Barrientos is furious with ATP Naples board! The controversy continues for the ATP 250 in Southern Italy, which after the disastrous issue relating to the playing courts must now face what happened to the Colombian tennis player.
On his official Twitter account, Barrientos wanted to tell about his bad experience at the tournament and he vented: "I arrive in the hall after playing my game at 5pm and find all my personal belongings and those of my wife, badly packed, with various things scattered on the ground.
I check my e-mail and see a message arrived at 4:00 pm while I was playing, informing me that I had to change hotel again. They had already changed my hotel once on the second day of my arrival I think I don't even need to mention the story of the fields that everyone knows by now, with the qualifiers and the first doubles round being played in a club 40 minutes from the official club.
tournament has very few machines and you can already imagine how difficult it is to get from one place to another."
Nicolas Barrientos furious with ATP Naples! What happened
The Colombian tennis player, however eliminated in the first round of the doubles tournament where he played with Reyes-Varela, wondered: "How can this happen in an ATP250? Not even in a Challenger had this ever happened to me, even if it had happened at my partner in a tournament organized by the same company as this 250." Then the request for justice: "I hope that the ATP will take measures to prevent players from having to face these situations, especially when the same incident is repeated in the tournaments organized by the same company." And still down hard: "The poor organization and planning of this tournament made it impossible to address every problem that arose." Below is the video posted as evidence of what happened by Barrientos.
Esto llenó la taza! Como puede pasar esto en un ATP250, ni en un Challenger me había pasado, bueno creo que a mi partner le paso en un Challenger organizado por la misma empresa de este 250. Abro hilo pic.twitter.com/LuXQura3Kw — Nicolas Barrientos (@nicobg15) October 18, 2022
