Marcus Daniell Unhappy About French Open

May 31, 2021 by

Kiwi Marcus Daniell has expressed his unhappiness at how players are being treated by Roland Garros officials ahead of this year’s French Open. Daniell has added his voice to those of several other players who have expressed dissatisfaction with the living conditions and quality of food they’ll be living with while inside their bio-bubble for the duration of the tournament.

Several players have furthermore expressed their dissatisfaction over the slashing of prize money for this year’s doubles events – this while the prize money to be earned by singles players during the early rounds has reportedly remained the same.

Daniell said doubles players already earned less than singles players on average and that there’s this year only so much more to content with at Roland Garros from a financial point of view.

Also recently heard lashing out about the prize money cuts had been Jamie Murray, who is the older brother of singles star Andy Murray. The younger Murray voiced his discontent about the cutting of the prize fund for doubles players, saying he did not believe the organisers of the event to be in any way mindful of the effects that this will have on participants.

But prize money has been slashed across the board by an average of 10.53%. Still, and quite understandably so, double players are clearly unhappy that they’re the ones having to bear the brunt of the reduction.

Since Daniell is a member of the ATP Players’ Council’s board, he’s been receiving complaints from all sides from doubles players unhappy about the unexpected changes.
