In the case of participating in the Roland Garros 2020 tournament, the “king” of Nadal clay yard wants to ensure a necessary condition.
Roland Garros 2020 missed an appointment with the audience many times
Without the Covid-19 pandemic, now would be the time for the exciting Roland Garros 2020 tournament in France. Initially, Roland Garros 2020 was planned to be held from 24/5 to 7/6. But the organizers had to postpone to the new schedule from September 29 to October 4.
Specifically, Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the organizers of Roland Garros 2020 have moved the antique schedule (May 18 to June 7) to the brand new schedule (September 20 – October 4). This decision was made in mid-March and was considered by many stakeholders to be “selfish” because the organizer of the French tennis federation (FFT) did not consult with anyone. The latest, according to the Le Parisien newspaper, FFT decided to postpone the schedule of Roland Garros 2020 for another week. The tournament will begin on September 27 and stop on October 11. This is the end result of a meeting among the French tennis federation and ATP with WTA.
Roland Garros’s rescheduling gives players an extra week of rest after the end of the US Open 2020. The US Grand Slam retains the identical schedule (August 31 to September 13). In addition, the 2 different tennis tournaments, the Madrid Open, and the Rome Masters have the possibility to be held for players who do not need to rest between the 2 Grand Slams.
