In press conference at the French Open on Sunday before the men's singles final between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem, the French tennis federation chief Bernard Giudicelli and the tournament director Guy Forget spoke about how the edition just happened went.
480,500 spectators attended the tournament during the two weeks, plus over 23,000 people for the qualies. Still, several seats were empty both on Philippe Chatrier and Suzanne Lenglen Stadiums. 'And it seems that the atmosphere on Court 18 has been incredible', Giudicelli added. 'The quality of the seats on Court Suzanne Lenglen are deemed comfortable, elegant, and wooden, showing that we are aiming at total elimination of plastics in the stadium.
And this corresponds to our ecological wishes.' ALSO READ: Andre Agassi finally speaks about split with Novak Djokovic
