French Open 2021

The first ever Roland Garros Tennis tournament played in the year of 1891. The 2021 French Open will be the 125th edition of this clay court tennis championship which will schedule to be held at the Stade Roland Garros stadium in Paris, France from late May and early June month of 2021 - some months after Australian Open 2021.

French tennis federation president Bernard Giudicelli says there are no plans to move the 2021 Roland Garros tournament from its traditional May-June slot after this year's event was shifted to the autumn due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Only 1,000 fans have been allowed to attend the Roland Garros 2020 grounds each day, with Covid-19 cases on the rise again in France.

However, Giudicelli said Sunday it was impossible to predict whether next year's edition would also be affected by the pandemic.

"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," he told reporters.

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

"We cannot today expect what will be the situation, what will be the conditions and the sanitary conditions next spring. We cannot have a crystal ball to find the solution. So for us, at this point, there is no debate."

Roland Garros organizers say they've not made a profit from this year's pandemic-hit edition of the French Open that was pushed back from spring to autumn, deprived of 97% of its ticket sales and most of its spectators.

Organizers said that staging this year's September-October edition in the midst of the pandemic, with only 1,000 spectators allowed per day and just 3% of the usual amount of tickets sold, caused a hit of 80 million to 100 million euros ($95 million to $118 million) to the tournament's revenues and left it earning about what it cost to hold.

The French Open will have night sessions that will be televised in France exclusively on Amazon Prime Video as of next year, organisers said on Sunday.

The French tennis federation said that one match a day, from the first Monday until the quarter-finals, would start at 2100 local time.

"Spectators are guaranteed to see that day’s headline men’s or women’s match from 9pm onwards," the FFT said in a statement.

The FFT's decision leaves Wimbledon as the only of the four Grand Slam tournaments without a night session.

Rafael Nadal remains the undisputed King of Clay. Nadal defeated his biggest rival, Novak Djokovic, in straight sets to win a record 13th title at the French Open. The World No.2 finally won his 20th Grand Slam title and equaled Roger Federer‘s record of 20 major championships.

After the convincing victory, the Roland Garros champion recorded a message for his fans. The video was uploaded by the ‘Rafa Nadal Academy’ on their Twitter account. Nadal was in a jubilant mood and talked about the importance of the French Open in his career.

“Here I’m back at the hotel after a long and a very happy day. To win here again at Roland Garros means a lot to me. Everybody knows how important is this place for me. Even if the worldwide situation is terrible, it is a super sad feeling to be playing the tournament with only 1000 people in a crowd,” said Nadal.
