As the WTA recently announced that its Masters will finally take place in Guadalajara, Mexico, coach of world number one Ashleigh Barty, Craig Tyzzer, has taken to the front lines in the Australian press to denounce the hasty decision. One way to put pressure on the instance by suspending the participation of his player.
“We have just learned that it is in Mexico, 1500 meters (above sea level) and that they are using non-pressurized bullets”, Tyzzer told theAAP. “Non-pressurized balls fly a lot. It’s still not the best advertisement for the best players in the world to play in a place they don’t know. As a show, it’s just scary. Initially we were told it was in Hong Kong, then in Prague and all of a sudden we were told it was in Mexico. It is absolutely ridiculous. It is almost as if this is the last attempt. I don’t feel like they really don’t try to promote women’s tennis as a showcase ”, he said before giving news of his player.
“She needed to go home, she is very homey. Indian Wells (October 7 to 17) is still on the radar but she just needs a rest. She was physically and mentally exhausted. So I told him to get away, take a vacation and recharge. We’ll probably make a decision at the end of the week on what she’s going to do based on her state of mind. But it’s definitely not easy for us to go out there and play this event in Mexico and then come back and have to do two more weeks in quarantine and see your been ruined. This is a decision that we will have to think about at length. “
