- The French Open is rescheduled to take place between the dates of September 27 and October 11.
- The French Open will now take place two weeks after the U.S. Open is set to finish.
- Wimbledon is the only Grand Slam so far that has been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The odds that the French Open continues as planned is high, but many players have arisen concerns.
PARIS – The French Open has once again been rescheduled and the tournament will now begin on September 27.
The world of tennis saw another shakeup due to the French Open being rescheduled. This is the second time that the Grand Slam has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Now the French Open will start on September 27, about two weeks after the conclusion of the U.S. Open.
Qualifiers will begin on September 21, leaving tennis players without much time to rest between the two Grand Slams. However, there is still a chance that the U.S. Open may be forced to changed schedules or be canceled altogether.
The Open Pandemic
The U.S. Open is the only Grand Slam that has not been rescheduled or canceled. The U.S. Open is still going on as scheduled. Wimbledon has been canceled and the French Open is happening on a different date.
Players like Rafael Nadal expressed that he would currently participate in the U.S. Open.
His reasons are that New York was hit especially hard by the coronavirus pandemic. There are also ongoing protests against police brutality happening in New York right now, making it difficult to play in the U.S. Open.
Legal sports betting sites are still hosting odds for the two remaining Grand Slams, but that could change in the future.
There is still a chance that the U.S. Open could be canceled due to the pandemic. That would leave the Australian Open and possibly the French Open the only two Grand Slams played in 2020.
But cases of the Coronavirus have gone down in New York. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo stated that New York is “on the right path” to being reopened.
Whether or not the U.S. Open will remain on schedule has yet to be seen.
Either way, if both the U.S. Open and the French Open goes on as currently scheduled, tennis bettors will have a lot of action happening during the months of August and October.
