The French Open Grand Slam tournament in Paris has been a happy hunting ground for the Spaniards over the years. Besides Rafael Nadal winning at Roland Garros a record 12 times, the other Spaniards have also done exceedingly well on the clay courts in Paris.
While Nadal has not made any statements related to the decision to delay Roland Garros as of now, some other Spanish players have provided their comments on the decision of the French Tennis Federation to move the tournament to September.
29 year old Pablo Carreño Busta, who is in mandatory quarantine at his home in Gijón, Spain, commented, "It is not the best option, but at this point the ATP calendar is what matters least. What really matters is that we can all go through this and that everything gets better.
Avoid contagion and when things get better we will understand when we will be able to train and compete again. At that time we thought about the calendar." Here is a look at the video below -
