Successful seduction operation for Court Simonne-Mathieu: Roland Garros


The main novelty of the 2019 Roland-Garros, and already the scene of several exploits, Court Simonne-Mathieu, located at the far east of the stadium, is unanimously welcomed by both players and spectators.

OF OUR SPECIAL ENVOY IN ROLAND-GARROS"Where is the Court Simonne-Mathieu? "Yet just a few meters from the target, this spectator can not imagine that behind the greenhouses that appear in front of her hides the great novelty of the Roland Garros 2019. Four greenhouses composed of plants from all over the world hide indeed this semi-buried court in order to marry at best the surrounding nature. Placed in the garden of the greenhouses of Auteuil, this little gem (baptized Simonne-Mathieu in tribute to the double winner of Roland Garros in 1938 and 1939 who was also resistant and captain of the Free French Forces) does not necessarily leave anyone indifferent. "I thought it was fantastic the first time I played it. I had asked to play my match here. It's a wonder this field Nicolas Mahut enthused after his Sunday performance against Marco Cecchinato. Despite the disappointment of her defeat in the first round on Monday morning against Viktoria Kuzmova, Alizé Cornet, for its part, still enjoyed being able to tread this very special court: " I really enjoyed this moment on the court. The audience was great. The court is very nice to play. I think this will surely become my favorite short at Roland. "

A haven of peace away from the excitement

Located at the eastern end of the stadium, this court enjoys a unique tranquility away from the noise and hustle and bustle that surround the other main courts. Only the sirens of ambulances or a speeding motorcycle remind us that Parisian life is not far. The green spaces surrounding the court allow spectators to easily enjoy a moment of relaxation, some do not hesitate to opt for a nap on the lawn despite the few notes of music sung by musicians present in the area. Ticket holders also have the privilege of being able to watch the game without waiting for a change of side thanks to the passageways installed between the stands and the greenhouses. Another specificity of which only Simonne-Mathieu court benefits.

The spectators closer to the players

Actors of the game and spectators are almost all unanimous: the proximity between the players and the public, both on the court and outside, is a major asset of this Court Simonne-Mathieu. To get to this field located away from the rest of the site, the players have no choice but to pass in the middle of the crowd. " It feels like you are with the players. If I have to choose, I'll come back here! ", Explains a spectator to describe the general feeling. This proximity is not the taste of all players. This is particularly the case of Elina Svitolina who enjoys this proximity moderately: " The only problem is when you have to make your way through the crowd to access the court, commented the Ukrainian Sunday night. It made me feel uncomfortable. Today (Monday), I won so it was nice to get through the crowd but I think when you lose, it can be very, very disturbing. A criticism that does not weigh much in the face of the general craze.
