The Roland Garros 2020 is already history: today the men's singles final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic wrote a new page of tennis history. This year, however, there are many doubts and threats regarding the tournament.
The Global Pandemic of Covid-19 is spreading again throughout the country, necessitating new lockdowns and new health containment measures to further prevent the rise of infections. For the French Open, in the summer, there were many hopes of getting the crowd back: at least 11,000 people a day were expected in the summer, which increased to 5,000 towards the beginning of September.
Now it could only be 1000 or something more. The most important novelties of this edition are obviously the retractable roof on the Philippe Chatrier and the lights, which will allow you to play indoor matches in the evening session.
There will be the conditions to play under the roof, and, so, indoor: what players could benefit of these new facilities? This will be a very unique edition, also because they will play in Autumn. Rafael Nadal won his 13th French Open title by brutally beating Novak Djokovic in three sets: the Spaniard did the impossible, reaching Roger Federer's 20 Slams, an incredible record, which certifies, after years, how perhaps Rafael Nadal is the most great tennis player of all time.
Below the match point of this historic challenge.
