Rolex Paris Masters – Corentin Moutet: “Those who know me know that I work very hard”

Expedited, not to say lapidary, with journalists since the start of his journey at the Rolex Paris Masters, which began last Saturday from qualifying, Corentin Moutet was much more affable on Thursday evening at the end of this journey, which ended with an honorable defeat against Stefanos Tsitsipas ( 6-3, 7-6) in the round of 16, thus sealing his best result in Paris and more generally in the Masters 1000.

The 23-year-old Parisian wanted to give his vision of things on his recent eviction from the structures of the FFT, revealed during the week by The Teamand which notably deprives him of any financial support to help him pay his (ex?) trainer Laurent Raymond, who is part of the federal fold.

Tsitsipas – Moutet: Highlights

I didn’t expect it because they were still in my box at the US Open, telling me I was doing it right, reacted the one who will be French n°3 next Monday behind Arthur Rinderknech and Adrian Mannarino. The saddest thing about this decision is not necessarily not to work with them anymore since anyway, I’m all alone in the field. No, the saddest thing is that I will no longer be able to work with Laurent, even though we have been making good progress for several months.

Since June, Moutet has indeed been going through the most prolific period of his career, notably with two Challengers titles, a round of 16 at the US Open and Bercy (each time coming out of qualifying) and a ” best ranking” which will be reached next Monday, at the gates of the top 50.

After experiencing manydifficult passages“, marked by numerous injuries, a lack of results and this feeling of having to change something in the way he works, he says he felt he had “finally found the right balance between the amount of work and the rest times needed.” Which, indeed, was beginning to show in his results. But not yet in attitude, at least in the eyes of the authorities.

“It’s going to be a little release for Moutet”

“I’m not perfect. At the level of behavior, I’m expressive. Sometimes I get carried away by my emotions, in any case, they are visiblecontinued the left-hander of TC Paris. But as we have seen here, I can also win very difficult matches, go for it in my entrenchments. And that, we are not a thousand to be able to do it. For that, I can be proud of myself. I think I’m a fighter and an enthusiast. And those who know me know that I work very hard.

Corentin Moutet, who does not yet know if Laurent Raymond will continue the adventure by his side in private, also regretted the timing of news that he said he learned two days before Bercy. “It’s not easy to get organized for the pre-season. But I didn’t want to think about all that yet while I was in the tournament, it was too much. There, I will have time to settle down, think about it and be able to organize myself for the future.
