The organizers however took the lead and postponed the event in September, coronavirus pandemic obliges. A unilateral decision which had moreover only been moderately appreciated by the international authorities and the other Grand Slam tournaments … It is precisely after consultation with the ATP and the WTA that the FFT would have reviewed its copy and accepted to program Roland-Garros from September 27 to October 11, 2020. This is information from our colleagues from Parisian. It has not yet been confirmed. Note that the qualifications will start on September 21. A new postponement that will offer more recovery time to players after the US Open (August 31-September 13). It’s also appreciable on the diffuser side, France Televisions : this avoids a telescoping between RG and the start of the Tour de France, September 20, but also the 24 hours of Le Mans, September 19 and 20.
