French Open: Right now, we have no intention of cancelling event

The French Open organizers intend to held the event as scheduled but still there is a chance they may be forced to call off the second Grand Slam tournament of the season. On Thursday, the ATP announced a six-week suspension of the men's professional Tour due to the coronavirus outbreak, while there won't be any WTA events for at least the next five weeks.

Though both the ATP and WTA announced lengthy suspension of their respective tours, some fear that more suspensions could be on the way and that we may not see any events until the grass season. The French Open is due to take place from May 24 - June 07.

"There are still a few months to go before the event. For the time being, we have no intention of cancelling the event. The French Tennis Federation will, as is its responsibility, follow the government's lead when making any such decisions," the French Open replied to a fan on Twitter, who asked if he should be worried the event will get cancelled.
