French Open

Hyderabad: The French Open, which was postponed to September 20, is likely to be pushed further, according to reports.

French Open director Guy Forget said that the clay court Grand Slam may be pushed to the end of September and can spill over into early October. “The official announcement has not been made yet. It will probably be between the end of September and the beginning of October,” Forget said.

“We’ve been working closely with the ATP, the WTA and the ITF to make a global announcement on what the circuit will be like until the end of the year,” he said.

“There are so many question marks. The city of New York is more affected by the coronavirus than France. They also have a lot of organisation problems, they will make an announcement mid-June to say how it’s going to be like for the US Open. We’ll see how the situation is in a couple of months. We will adapt to what the government will say. We have to be ambitious and optimistic,” he said.
