Diego Schwartzman, current number one in Argentine tennis and 13th in the world ranking, questioned the ATP’s way of communicating, considering that the international entity “so far has not hit any.”
Schwartzman expressed it in reference to the cancellation of the Washington tournament, which occurred last Tuesday in a circuit that was interrupted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and with a return date scheduled for next month.
“For me the ATP did not hit any for now, we practically never found out from them first than from a social network of the decisions they make, for example the cancellation of Washington,” said Schwartzman, 27, in an interview he gave to the FM Milenium, statements it collects Telam.
The tennis player emerged from the Club Náutico Hacoaj, one of the four Argentines installed among the 100 best in the world, is traveling this Saturday to North America with the idea of adding adaptation in the preview of the US Open.
In this context, he regretted the situation that caused the pandemic and requested that there be better communication from the agencies to the players. “The cancellation of Washington was seen coming and the ATP in quotes was predicting it to us, it was telling us that it was complicated because the times for all the permits and everything that was needed to make a tournament did not come, but we ended up finding out all The players on twitter and after 20 minutes came out to confirm it, “added the” Peque “.
“The way to communicate and the way they want to carry out, for example the US Open, is crazy. In my case I will go to play because I need it, it is my job, but the conditions are crazy, like going to play a Grand Slam after seven months with only one companion, locked in a hotel for 21 days, without being able to leave, it is all too far-fetched, “said Schwartzman.
