Director of Roland GarrosGuy Forget has assured that the French ‘Grand Slam’ could be held “between the end of September and the beginning of October”, but they are still pending the calendar established by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), ATP and WTA.
“There has been no official announcement yet. Roland Garros is likely to take place between late September and early October. We are working closely with player associations and the ITF to announce what the tennis season will be like from now until the end of the year, “he said in an interview on French radio Europe 1.
The tennis season is expected to resume from Monday, August 3; the ‘big’ French is waiting to announce his dates of celebration to avoid coinciding with the US Open. The tournament played at Flushing Meadows is the account currently with the most problems to organize due to the evolution of the pandemic in the United States.
“There are many questions and organizational problems, New York City has more cases than all of France. The future of the US Open will be announced in mid-June, “Forget concluded.
