  • Several grass-court events may have to reschedule or cancel

The French Open has been postponed by a week due to Covid-19 measures in the country. The French Tennis Federation confirmed on Thursday that the second major of 2021 will be moving to a 30 May start instead of 23 May, with the tournament now due to finish on 13 June. The postponement means that there will only be a two-week gap between Roland Garros and Wimbledon, with the grass-court season cut by one week as a result.
