Top players get better treatment at Wimbledon, says Cornet

Lower-ranked players at Wimbledon are not given the same treatment as the top players, according to former world number 11 Alize Cornet of France. Cornet, who is now ranked 74th, was eliminated in the second round by defending champion Elena Rybakina with a 6-2 7-6(2) defeat. This year, Cornet noticed a difference in treatment at the All England Club. She explained that at Roland Garros, she has priority over the courts and knows everyone, but at Wimbledon, there is a significant disparity between the treatment of seeded players and other players. Cornet also mentioned the difference in ticket allocation, stating that she received only two tickets for her first-round match on an outside court, but 40 tickets for her match against Rybakina on Centre Court, which has a capacity of 15,000 seats. Cornet believes that more credit should be given to players competing on the outside courts, as the tournament exists because of all the players, not just the ones on the big courts. She acknowledged that the U.S. Open and Australian Open are fairer in terms of treatment. However, Cornet acknowledged that in society, the better you are, the more advantages you receive. RushHourDaily has reached out to Wimbledon organizers for comment.
