Organizers can imagine a tournament without spectators ·

The organizers of the French Open no longer rule out holding the most important clay court tournament on the tennis calendar without a spectator. “Organizing the tournament behind closed doors would allow part of the business model to operate television rights. This should not be overlooked,” said Bernard Giudicelli, president of the French tennis association FFT.

Most recently, France’s Minister of Sport Roxana Maracineanu had given a clear refusal to host the Grand Slam tournament without spectators. The TV funds, however, make up more than a third of the income of the French Open. The organizers had already announced during the week that they would refund the money for the tickets they had already purchased.

The largest clay court tournament in the world was originally scheduled to take place at Roland Garros from May 24 to June 7, but was postponed due to the corona pandemic. It will now take place from September 27th to October 11th.

International tournament tennis is currently suspended at least until July 13th.
