“Every morning we have a meeting of everyone involved. I came into the room and they were all there. There was silence because everyone was feeling uncomfortable. I stood up and I said ‘listen, guys, yesterday was the worst day ever for Team Serena because she lost and because of what happened,” Mouratoglou told Daily Mail.

However, Patrick said that it was a great day for tennis because finally someone expressed her strong emotions on the tennis court.

“But it was the best day for tennis because tennis is everywhere, it’s great for tennis. So it depends on how you look at it’. People watch sports like they watch a movie, they want to feel emotion, Watching tennis today is like watching a movie full of very nice people doing nothing wrong. We lack a bit of authenticity.” he added.
