French tennis star Caroline Garcia has expressed frustration over the schedule of the Madrid Open. The ongoing WTA 1000 event in the Spanish capital is moving closer towards its conclusion where remaining players are battling it out to secure the ultimate prize.
Just like a lot of WTA 1000 events, the Madrid Open has been organised over a period of nearly two weeks with the competition starting from the round of 128. Garcia, who won the 2022 WTA Finals, saw her journey in the competition come to an early end as she lost in the round of 32 to Italy’s Jasmine Paolini in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 6-2.
The former world number four was recently quoted in a report where she expressed unhappiness over a schedule which is spanned over two weeks and stated that it was ‘frustrating’ to be in the event for a week and just play two matches, something she was not able to ‘resonate’. “We've been here for a week and we've played two matches,” said the current world number 24. It moves slowly, you don't do much, you wait... This format is a bit frustrating. Some might resonate with it, but I can’t.”
