Breaking News ! The French Open has been postponed by a week with the main tournament now due to start on May 30, the French Tennis Federation has announced. France president Emmanuel Macron announced on March 31 that a schedule for the return of sporting events would start from mid-May onwards, which led to the decision by the French Tennis Federation. Following a statement from Roland Garros on Thursday morning, it was confirmed the qualifying rounds would be held from May 24-28, with the main draw due to start on May 30 and finish on June 13. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Roland-Garros (@rolandgarros) President of the French Tennis Federation, Gilles Moretton said: "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. "I thank them for this. It will give the health situation more time to improve and should optimise our chances of welcoming spectators at Roland-Garros, into our newly-transformed stadium that now covers more than 30 acres. "For the fans, the players and the atmosphere, the presence of spectators is vital for our tournament, the spring's most important international sporting event." The grand slam in Paris had been scheduled to take place between May 17 and June 6, but France was placed in a third national lockdown earlier this month after a sharp rise in coronavirus cases.

. — ATP Tour (@atptour) April 8, 2021 In 2020, the tournament was moved to October from its usual slot due to the first wave of Covid-19, with a limited amount of fans allowed in. The WTA and ATP, who organise the heavily packed women's and men's tours respectively. have said they will work alongside the French Tennis Federation and suggested that the move was done to increase the chances of fans being able to attend the tournament. "Tennis has required an agile approach to the calendar over the past 12 months in order to manage the challenges of the pandemic, and this continues to be the case," the WTA and ATP said in a statement. "Both the WTA and ATP are working in consultation with all parties impacted by the postponement to optimize the calendar for players, tournaments, and fans, in the lead up to and following Roland-Garros. Further updates will be communicated in due course." ID:442264:1false2false3false:QQ:: from db desktop :LenBod:collect10867:
