Can I move this to Great Tennis Journalism? I think it might be written by AI. The last line, referring to the quest for the French title as "a path to gold," is off the mark, at least for an audience familiar with the phrase "go for the gold" as an Olympics reference. Maybe the UK doesn't use that phrase as often? I'd never let that ending stand as an editor - especially since the Olympics are being played at the same venue soon after. It's confusing.

And don't get me started on creating a long piece based entirely on another outlet's reporting.

You can't move it (you are not the author of either quotes) but you can create a link and reference. Just click on the number of the post (#721) and the link will be copied to your clipboard and then you can paste at will.

I found that last line about going for the gold, odd as well. Gold really only applies to the Olympics as something to go for.

The other tennis stuff sounded pretty solid. I think AI would definitely make that kind of mistake. I think if it got tricked by the Olympics happening at RG a little later.
