In a promotional video for the Montreal WTA 1000 event this week, producers asked some players which rule, if any, would they change. The responses were mild, but it was great timing, as this week in Toronto has seen several extreme outbursts from ATP players due to rule enforcement.

Victoria Azarenka stated that she would like to have more interaction with her team and coaches. “The interaction with your team and people could be more free,” she said. “I think it would make it more fun and engaging.”

Simona Halep stated she would not allow play at 1 PM when it’s 40 degrees celsius, while Aryna Sabalenka would like to increase the dimensions of the court. “I don’t know, I would make the court a little bit bigger,” the Belarusian said with a smile.
