While most tennis players and experts do not see the tennis circuit resume in 2020, including World No. 2 Rafael Nadal, his uncle and former coach Toni Nadal says he feels the Roland Garros Grand Slam in Paris will be able to be played in September.
In a interview with the program El Larguero, Toni Nadal says, "It is not easy to know when tennis will be able to return because it is a sport that requires a lot of travel, but I have a feeling that everything will be done so that we can compete in Roland Garros 2020.
"I think that maybe in September we will be able to play again." "In tennis tournaments you need to organize a lot of things. As an event does not prepare in a few weeks, it is almost impossible for a calendar to be established this season.
"But the Roland Garros case is different because they possibly have the whole organization very advanced." The French Open Grand Slam which is usually held every year in May-June has been rescheduled to take place between September 20 and October 4.
There are discussions that it will be postponed by another week from September 27 to October 11. Toni's nephew Rafael Nadal has won the French Open a record 12 times already and will be aiming to win the event for the 13th time when it is next played.
Rafael Nadal has won 19 Grand Slam singles titles in his career and is one behind Roger Federer, who has won a record 20 Grand Slam singles titles.
