On-court coaching, with Timea Babos

Save

“I don’t know why I play tennis,” says Timea Babos.

“Putain, c’est pas possible!” (” *&*#$^, it’s not possible!), says coach Thomas Drouet as he leaves the court.

Not sure how it adds to the “entertainment experience” to watch that. Babos lost to Dutch player Arantxa Rus 5-7, 6-2, 6-3.
