French Open raining with masks

“The decision is made” Organisers announce update on French Open 2021 schedule

The French Open 2021 will take place in it’s usual diary slot of late May to early June according to their Tournament Director Guy Forget


Without a crystal ball to tell him what the pandemic situation will be like in 2021, Guy Forget can only confirm that they intend to hold the French Open at Roland Garros in it’s original slot of the last weeks of May and early June.

Speaking in an interview after the 2020 French Open was concluded on Sunday, Forget said, “I would say to make a decision on the tournament in May and June, it is not about ourself. Today for us the decision is made.

“We will play Roland Garros at the end of May and the beginning of June (2021) as it is done so far.

“So we cannot today expect what will be the situation, what will be the conditions and the sanitary conditions in the next spring. We cannot have a crystal ball to find the solution.

So for us, at this point, there is no debate.”
