Jasmine Paolini was the biggest surprise of Roland Garros. A tournament in which she reached the final in both the women's singles and the women's doubles. The culmination of a very positive season so far, as she also certified with her victory in her first WTA 1000, last February 24th in Dubai.

And also Patrick Mouratoglou crowned the Italian player. the French coach published a long message dedicated to Jasmine Paolini on his Instagram profile.

"Jasmine Paolini is one meter and 63 centimeters tall and reached the Roland Garros final. In today's tennis you can be an athlete of not exceptional stature but still be an incredible player. When you are tall you have certain advantages, when you are less tall you have others types of advantages. When you are tall it is obviously important for the serve, for the opening of the arms and you can create strength more easily.

However, when you are smaller in stature you can move in an incredible way on the court both laterally and forwards. Paolini has a great gift, she has great power, she plays tennis and is an extremely combative player. Paolini moves very well on the court and she also has the great gift of being skilled at creating acceleration. Many tennis players simply hit the ball while she plays tennis. She sees the court, looks for angles, and that's a big strength of her game.

There are many other players who move on the court with greater discipline. I'm not saying she isn't an undisciplined player but she is a more creative player because she loves the game. If you are a short player, you need to be aware that movement is something incredible, something you can invest in to improve your game. We need to develop this as much as we can," explained the former coach of Serena Williams.
