By postponing the tournament, the organization in France hopes to hitch a ride on the corona liberalization of the French government. He would consider lifting the strict measures from 1 June. The tournament hopes to welcome larger groups of audiences from that date.
Should the tournament actually be postponed, that would be a lot of laughter for the Libéma Open, the grass tournament for men and women in Rosmalen. The tournament in the Netherlands, in which Kiki Bertens, among others, has agreed to participate, is scheduled for the week of June 7, in the new scenario the 2nd week of Roland Garros. According to L’Equipe, there are 2 options for the grass tournaments of that week: a cancellation or a postponement. In the latter case, the French tennis association would have to pay financial compensation.
If Roland Garros is moved, the grass season would only last four weeks. Wimbledon would start two weeks after the end of Roland Garros, as was always the case for corona. Moving that grand slam (June 28-July 7) seems difficult, because the Olympic Games are scheduled for the end of July.
