September 28, Beijing time, the 2020 French Open kicked off. Azarenka swept Montenegro's first sister Kovinic 6-1, 6-2 in the first round and scored a good start. But shortly after the game started, there was an episode. Due to the cold weather and rain, Azarenka and his opponent reached an agreement and temporarily suspended the game.
"This is too much. The weather is too cold. What's the point here, sitting here like a duck." Azarenka said.
She said to the supervisor: "Are you kidding me? Didn't you see what happened here? It rained for 15 minutes and we were still playing. I couldn't hold my racket because it was too wet."
"I won't wait here for a few minutes, because I'm freezing to death. It's only 8 degrees. I lived in Florida before, and I'm used to the climate there." Then both of them left the stadium.
Regarding Azarenka’s remarks, the Swedish celebrity expressed his views. "There are some players who just love tennis. But there are also some players who like the audience atmosphere and hope that everything is perfect, such as Azarenka. I can understand, but I don't think there is any excuse for her today. You play hard, or you don’t have to participate, you don’t have to participate in the Grand Slam."
