5 Tennis Superstar Committed to the Environment

Tennis is increasingly aware of its impact on the environment. In question: the very many trips by plane, around the world, for competitions. Also at issue: the number of balls used each year by tennis superstars.

Then, who are the tennis superstars openly committed, at their level, to a greener world?

Alize Cornet

Alize Cornet has undertaken to offset her carbon emissions, due among other things, to her air travel.

The Frenchwoman also supported the planting of several trees near her home, in Cannes, as part of the Vergers d’Avenirs program.

Jo Wilfried Tsonga

Newly retired from tennis since Jo-Wilfried Tsonga had made this Roland Garros 2022 his last tournament, he is more and more sensitive to the environment.

Dominic Thiem

The Austrian, winner of the US Open in 2020, is also an athlete aware of his carbon footprint caused by the many trips inherent in his practice. He uses his notoriety wisely to talk about ecology and move the lines – not the net this time.

Very close to nature and brought up in a vegan family , he sets an example through his behaviour – avoiding the use of plastic as much as possible -, his way of life and his diet.

Paul-Henri Mathieu

Retired from the tennis courts since 2017, the former 12th in the world remains a strong pillar of the world of French tennis.

During a series of 10 challenges for athletes, Paul-Henri Mathieu took up the challenge of taking a shower as quickly as possible in order to raise awareness about wasting water.

Lucie Wargnier

Lucie Wargnier regularly uses her Instagram account to denounce animal abuse and promote the alternative to meatless diets.

She is also the ambassador of the Ligne clothing brand, which offers eco-responsible tennis outfits.
