The French Open has banned fans from drinking alcohol on court after players complained of an increasingly hostile atmosphere.

«A lot of players said it’s been like that for a few years since Covid. I had all kinds of personal abuse there,» the 30-year-old told Talksport.

“You try to laugh it off. But it’s hard because you only have 15 or 20 seconds between points and a nine-year-old is telling you what’s going to happen and insulting you. It’s a different experience.

“Last year in my second round of qualifying I had to ask a group of people to be removed. I think this has been going on for a few years and the referees can’t seem to do anything.
