The 2020 French Open will begin on Sunday 27 September and will run until Sunday 11 October, 2020 at the Roland-Garros Stadium in Paris. Like most major sports events, the 2020 French Open was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is the 119th edition of the French Open tennis professional tennis tournament.

The event will be very different from years past. Only a limited number of fans will be in attendance as the limit for welcoming the public is set at 5,000 people. Many major stars won’t be playing: both Roger Federer and Naomi Osaka aren’t in the draw due to injuries. But you can expect Rafael Nadal to go for his record 13th French Open title.

Organizing a Grand Slam in the time of a pandemic requires the following of strict regulations and protocols. Half of the seats will be condemned, both in the stands of the main courts and in the adjoining courts.

The 2020 French Open is the third major to take place this year, after February’s Australian Open and just weeks after the U.S. Open. Wimbledon was canceled entirely.
