Tennis. Fiona Ferro sued her ex-trainer for rape


This is a case that will cause a stir in the world of tennis. Fiona Ferro filed a complaint in February for rape and sexual assault by a person in authority, against her former coach Pierre Bouteyre, unveiled Nice-Matin on Wednesday.

The facts would have taken place between 2012 and 2015 in Saint-Raphaël when the tennis player was aged 15 to 18.

According to the Nice media, the latter would have recognized “the materiality of the facts but disputes the accusation of rape”, according to his lawyer Maître Virginie Pin.

Pierre Bouteyre, 50, is also banned from training minors until further notice.

The investigation is still ongoing and will try to determine if other similar acts could have been committed on other players.

For her part, Fiona Ferro, eliminated in the first round of the US Open this week, will leave her club in Nice where she had been dismissed for several years and join a club in the Paris region.
