“I think we are going to see longer games this year, and one of the main reasons is the quality of the balls”, estimated Novak Djokovic after his qualification for the 2e round. He was going in the same direction as Rafael Nadal, very critical on these new Dunlop balls before its elimination.
Felix Auger‐Aliassime also ranted at the referee during his big duel at 2e round against Alex Molcan, which he ended up winning in five sets (3−6, 3–6, 6–3, 6–2, 6–2, in 3h05 of play).
“I’ve never complained about it but the balls don’t bounce. I knock normally…I don’t know…You can’t do anything. I have never seen this before”grumbled the Canadian when he was down two sets to nothing.
To see now what will be the response of the organization. If there is one…
