In an interview conducted by our colleagues from Tennis, Frédéric Fontang spoke about the importance of the words of great sportsmen.

Asked about the recent positions taken by Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios concerning the confidential nature of the vaccination status, the coach of Félix Auger-Aliassime insisted on the repercussions that certain statements can have.

“We are in a civilization where communication is important. Headliners and influential players need to pay attention to communication. I have a 19 year old boy and a 16 year old girl. So I speak as a parent. You have to be careful because it is not because you are very strong in your sport that you can have a relevant opinion on other aspects of life, politics etc. You shouldn’t either not communicate, nor play the game with journalists. You need a good entourage for responsible communication. “
