France's Alizé Cornet is set to release a book about her life on the WTA Tour and beyond.

The launch has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic; it was due to coincide with the French Open in May but will now be published in September.

“I’ve always been a big fan of literature," Cornet said in an interview for the French Tennis Federation's website.

"It's all my own work. It's a mixture of autobiography and travelogue."

She is also writing a work of fiction - but that one will not be in the public domain.

"I have no intention of publishing that one," she explained. "It's just for pleasure. It's what I like doing and it helps me to pass the time."

Currently ranked World No.56, the 30-year-old added that she is coping well with self-isolation.

"Being confined isn't going too badly. I can go to the basement to work out and keep fit but like a lot of people, I really miss being out there and playing tennis."

Cornet reached the final of the Ladies Open Lausanne in 2019, as well as the semifinals of the Hobart International and the quarterfinals of the Nature Valley International in Eastbourne.
