RIO DE JANEIRO, August 3 /TASS/. Russian tennis player Svetlana Kuznetsova, who will represent Russia at the Rio Olympics 2016, told TASS on Tuesday she was disappointed with the condition of training courts in Rio.
"I am greatly disappointed! The courts are half-finished. It is such a mess, to put it mildly. The courts are dirty and dusty. I have a feeling of training at a construction site," Kuznetsova said.
Tennis players have little time to train. "Only 45 minutes a day! Of course, it can be longer if there are few people. But since many courts are not finished, it is hardly possible. And we need to train 2 or 3 hours a day," Kuznetsova, who is the 2004 US Open and 2009 French Open women’s singles winner and three-time Federation Cup holder, said.
The Olympic Summer Games in Rio will kick off on August 5.
