Roland Garros will use a AI technology based software to help filter hate comments for players during the duration of the event.
The event will begin next week and they will attempt to limit the amount of hate players get during the duration of it. The software in question is an AI-based one that will use machine learning to determine which comments are hateful and block them. Social media abuse has been an ongoing problem for players and many have openly spoken about it.
The director of the French Tennis Federation said about the initiative:
2023 French Open Roland Garros ATP and WTA Prize Money and Points Breakdown with €49.6m on offer
"The mental health of the players is a priority for the Roland Garros tournament. We will not accept any form of violence at our tournament."
She further added that she's proud that Roland Garros is the first event to offer something like that to players:
"We are very proud to be the first grand slam tournament to offer players a solution that efficiently protects them against cyberbullying. We want to protect the players from this damaging behaviour, to enable them to be in peak mental condition when they compete in the tournament."
