Going to the net can be a factor, look at Federer - Francesca Schiavone

Francesca Schiavone had some interesting suggestions for younger WTA players. According to the 2010 Roland Garros champion, they could do something better to make women's tennis a little bit more unpredictable. 'I would suggest them to open angles, they (players) don't use angles', Schiavone said in Monte Carlo.

'It's all one tactic. There are players like (Simona) Halep and (Caroline) Wozniacki who could perfectly open the court. And then they should improve a lot at the net, which can still be a factor, look at Roger (Federer)...'' 'There is much difference between the top players and the rest', the 37-year-old added.

'Halep and Wozniacki are a step higher than others, then I put Venus (Williams), then Serena is coming back even if she needs a little bit of fitness form.' Schiavone hasn't retired yet and despite she left the top 150 WTA rankings, still wants to play: 'I had last watched tennis one month and a half ago.

Coming back here is another thing: I have this drug inside that is tennis and is in my blood. Once I see the courts and the competition again, I feel part of it straightaway. I want to head to the court and play. I was born this way.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: 'Andy Murray asked me for advice'
