Alizé Cornet at Paradis Beachcomber: “conditions are ideal for a wonderful holiday”

Social media

Alizé Cornet, the French No. 3 women’s tennis player, who is also ranked 38th in the world, took a dozen days’ break at Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa in November with her partner, Michael Kuzaj, prior to starting her pre-season preparation.

 

 

The 27-year-old tennis player from Nice describes her first stay in Mauritius and at Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa as “truly fabulous”. “We are really delighted to be here and the conditions are ideal,” she says.

Together with her partner, they have tried a number of different experiences during their holiday, including dolphin-watching, the sports centre activities, snorkelling, a boat outing, swimming in the lagoon fringed by “one of the most beautiful beaches in the world”, climbing up the legendary Morne Brabant Mountain, kitesurfing as well as a visit to Flic en Flac and Port Louis.

Alize says she is somewhat frustrated with her performance in the 2017 season, having been sidelined in February and March with a shoulder injury. “It took me some time to get back into game shape after my two-month injury. In the end, I feel that three out of the nine-month-long season have been wasted. Despite this, I finished with a world ranking of 38 and had some good results in Australia, at Roland Garros and in China towards the end of the year. However, the season hasn’t been truly complete,” she says.

The French tennis player hopes to stay in good shape in 2018 in order to play a full season. After flying back home, she will begin her endurance training at the Mouratoglou Tennis Academy, which is next door to Beachcomber French Riviera in the south of France. On Boxing Day, she will head to Australia to play her first tournament of the season.

 

 

The young woman hopes to return to the Top 30 on the WTA rankings and ultimately, reach the Top 20. “Above all else, I want to stay in good health throughout the year, avoid injuries and have fun playing. I believe it is important to still enjoy playing tennis.”

But one thing seems pretty sure: Alizé can’t wait to spend time in Mauritius again. “We will definitely come back to enjoy all the wonderful things available within the resort or on the island.”
