We are in the final stages of the Roland Garros 2020: today the women's singles final was staged, which gave all fans a big surprise. 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.
Iga Swiatek, at 19 years-old, is the new French Open champion! The Pole defeated the American Sofia Kenin in two sets to won her firts Slam and her first WTA title. An incredible goal, after a tournament as a great protagonist.
Below the championships point!
