The Madrid Open released an apology on Thursday for not enabling the females’s doubles finalists to attend to the crowd throughout the awards event following last weekend’s last.

Both of the guys’s songs and doubles finalists were allowed to speak with the crowd following their matches. However, females’s doubles winners Victoria Azarenka and Beatriz Haddad Maia and finalists Coco Gauff and Jessica Pegula weren’t managed that exact same high-end following the conclusion of Sunday’s last.

“We offer our sincerest apologies to all the players and fans who expected more from the Madrid Open,” Madrid Open CEO Gerard Tsobanian stated 4 days after the last. “Not giving the chance to our finalists of women’s doubles to speak to fans after the match was unacceptable.”

Tsobanian likewise mentioned that the occasion had actually said sorry personally to all 4 females and the organizers were “working intensely with the WTA, to revise our protocols.”

“What happened in Madrid, it was really disappointing,” Pegula included. “Did I think we were not going to be able to speak? No. I’ve never heard of that in my life. I don’t know what century everyone was living in when they made that decision.”

In addition, Carlos Alcaraz existed with an enormous cake following his semifinal success on Friday. However, Aryna Sabalenka, who won the females’s songs title, got a much smaller sized cake.
