Tennis - Frenchwoman Alize Cornet has spoken out about the tense situation in French tennis involving the Fed Cup selection and compatriot Caroline Garcia. In an interview to Le Parisien, Cornet says, “The situation is fine.
The operation of Yannick [Noah] is not at all the same as that of Amélie [Mauresmo], where everything was square. Yannick is more instinctive. Both are good when you trust the captain, and that's the case. Caro had announced that she did not want to play for a year.
We did not agree, but we respected her decision. Kristina (Mladenovic), Pauline (Parmentier) and I try to stay together because we are the pillars of this team. As for relations with Caro, nothing much has happened. It's not like we were going to eat together every night before” Speaking about the timing of the team’s LOL messages on Twitter after Garcia announced her injury, Cornet says, “It was a question of timing.
The proportions it took was crazy. It was not addressed to Caro but to the situation. We had seen that she was on the list while being hurt. We talked with Kristina and Pauline, and we wanted to express how laughable the situation was.
And, now, Caro passes for the victim of our plot of LOL (laugh). We should have waited until the next day.” Also Read - Barbara Rittner Speaks Out About Maria Sharapova Wild Card Controversy
