French Open Postponed by a Week, Confirm Organisers and Tennis Federations
French Open 2021 has been postponed by a week, the organisers of the Grand Slam tournament confirmed on Thursday. The main draw of the tournament will now be held from May 30 to June 6, the French Tennis Federation announced. The delay could enable more fans to attend if coronavirus restrictions are eased by then. The qualifying rounds will be held from May 24 to 28.
'I am delighted that the discussions with the public authorities, the governing bodies of international tennis, our partners and broadcasters, and the ongoing work with the WTA and ATP, have made it possible for us to postpone the 2021 Roland-Garros tournament by a week.
