Former French Open champion Yannick Noah says that the players could use the current break to make improvements in their game, during an interview to the French daily L'Equipe. Noah, the last French player to win the Roland Garros tournament in 1983, says, "During the circuit break I would have been trying to fill in my gaps because as the circuit is designed you don't have time to work.
You can recover from a physical break, but a technical gap takes time, two or three months, and this is the perfect occasion. In my time, Paul McNamee did it. He stopped four months and came back with a great two-handed backhand.
I would have worked my gaps as well. Since my serve and volley were good, I would have worked my forehand, which was very limited. I would have put on videos of Nick Bollettieri. It is the perfect occasion for players to try to change the technique and come back stronger.
All the players from outside the Top-10 have something to improve. " The Frenchman also said he hoped that the use of towels between points would be discontinued when the tennis circuit resumes. "If you keep up (with) the towel, tennis will lose an enthusiast for the last 50 years, someone who will want to be buried with their racket.
Do you take 20 seconds of towel, you come to try to break a serve and you need others Twenty seconds of towel? That for me is direct disqualification! I can't handle the towels."
