Amelie Mauresmo

Amelie Mauresmo, the tournament director for the French Open, has delivered a long-awaited apology for declaring that “men’s tennis has greater appeal than women’s tennis.”

On Thursday, the former Grand Slam champion told Tennis Channel: “First and foremost, my statements were taken out of context and removed from the larger picture. And I’d like to apologize to the players who were hurt by what I said.”

Men’s matches are longer than women’s matches, offering single evening event ticket holders more value for their money, according to Mauresmo.

“Concerning scheduling, specifically for night matches, I stated that because we only have one match and it’s far more difficult to organize a woman’s match due to the length. It’s only right for the ticket holders “She continued.

Iga Swiatek, the world number one, also criticised Mauresmo’s comments, saying she was “disappointed and astonished.”
