This Tuesday, on his social networks, the French tennis player Laurent Lokoli launched a cry of alarm on the insults that the sportsmen receive in the direction of the authorities of world tennis.
The words are shocking, yet they no longer surprise us. On Twitter, Laurent Lokoli posted many comments received on his Instagram account after his defeat in a tournament in Portugal.
The 243rd in the world accompanied his photos with a comment: “When are you going to do something? It’s obviously easier to close your eyes … “We can’t do anything” well it’s time to do just that.”

The subject of insults received from sports bettors towards professional tennis players is at the heart of the problem today. Recently, the L’Equipe channel produced a documentary on this scourge during which Stade Toulousain player Benjamin Bonzi was also part of the insults they receive after each match.
