Tennis majors facing disruption after French Open delay

The French Open, which typically takes place in May at Paris’ Roland Garros, has been postponed until September 20th.

This postponement could have a knock-on affect on Grand Slam tennis scheduled for later in the year, with the US Open exploring the option of postponing their event to a later date in the year.

US Open organisers have said…

“The USTA is continuing to plan for the 2020 US Open and is not at this time implementing any changes to the schedule.

“These are unprecedented times, though, and we are assessing all of our options, including the possibility of moving the tournament to a later date.

“At a time when the world is coming together, we recognise that such a decision should not be made unilaterally, and therefore the USTA would only do so in full consultation with the other Grand Slam tournaments, the WTA & the ATP, the ITF and our partners, including the Laver Cup.
