Coco Gauff isn’t happy with how the French Open, and tennis tournaments at large, are being run anymore.

Gauff ripped the French Open and the sport in general for its scheduling practices this weekend. Finishing matches at 3 a.m. local time, she said, isn’t healthy.”Yeah, I definitely think finishing at 3 a.m. is — I feel like a lot of times people think you’re done, but really, 3 a.m., then you have [media responsibilities] and then you have to shower, eat, and then a lot of times people do treatments,” Gauff said Sunday, via ESPN. “So that’s probably not going to bed until 5 o’clock at the earliest, maybe 6 o’clock, and even 7 o’clock.

“I definitely think it’s not healthy. It may be not fair for those who have to play late because it does ruin your schedule. I’ve been lucky I haven’t been put in a super-late finish yet.”
