Rafael Nadal voiced his displeasure over the condition of court Chatrier so what did the tournament do? They put the 8-time French Open champion’s first round match against Robby Ginepri on court Suzanne Lenglen.
Coincidence? Or did he request not to play on Chatrier?
Meanwhile, arch rival and second seed Novak Djokovic who’s never won the French Open, only playing in the finals once, was given a slot on Chatrier at about the same time.
Defending champion Serena Williams also played on Chatrier today.
More will be known after Nadal plays about playing on Lenglen! But the Nadal camp cannot be pleased.
Nadal played Martin Klizan last year on the same court in the second round.
