Happy ending for Miyu Kato who won the mixed doubles of the French Open at Roland-Garros.
She came out in tears on Sunday June 4 after her mixed doubles disqualification. Four days later, tears of joy appear on the face of Miyu Kato, winner this Thursday, June 8 of the mixed doubles at Roland Garros with the German Puetz. The pair won against Andrescu – Venus in three sets after a super tie break, 4-6, 6-4, 10-6. A beautiful end for the Japanese who had notably received the support of Alizée Cornet a few days ago.
As a reminder, the Japanese had been disqualified for having sent a ball at a Roland-Garros collector. “Whatever I tell you, the reality is that my bullet hit her. It’s the truth. I can’t say anything more than to apologize to her, to my partner, to the people who were there for us, spectators and the tournament (…) I will face my responsibilities. Today, all I can say to you is that I am grateful that the public did not boo me at my out of the court yesterday (…) I don’t think my ball hit the pick-up hard. I’m not saying that to absolve myself of responsibility, but I feel that, for my own conscience, I should have the right to review, even in private, the images to assume the truth” she explained at a press conference.
