The French Insider #10 – Alizé Lim on the Roland-Garros social scene
Alize Lim visits Jenny Drummond on the latest episode of the French Insider to break down the post-Roland-Garros social scene.
In the latest episode of The French Insider, WTA player Alizé Lim dropped by to break down the social scene after the Roland-Garros final.
Most notably was an appearance on Instagram by the great Roger Federer. The Swiss posted a pair of congratulatory messages for Rafael Nadal, and also enjoyed some gelato in Milano.
“Roger hasn’t posted anything on Instagram since August 1, and all of the sudden he reappears on social media to congratulate Rafa after posting a picture of himself in Milano, eating some ice cream,” Lim said. “He wanted to congratulate Rafa, so that was very thoughtful of him.”

Ash Barty hits the links
World No.1 Ash Barty wasn’t in Paris this year, but she has been making her presence felt on the golf course. The Aussie is a passionate sportswoman and recently won a trophy.
“She won the tournament, so she posted a picture of herself with her trophy,” Lim said. “We know Ash Barty loves switching sports as she already did when she quit tennis when she was a teenager and she played cricket for a little bit.”
Tennis moves on to the next tournaments
Roland-Garros barely ended, but some players are already showing up at their next tournaments, including Stan Wawrinka.
“Everyone is back to practice and indoor season is coming up,” Lim said. “St. Petersburg is starting tomorrow, Stan Wawrinka has been posting a lot about it. Simona Halep was in the gym – I think most players have to be back at it already, there’s no stop in tennis, there’s no break, we know that.”
