The French Tennis Federation has announced that due to the exceptional challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic and national French restrictions, the staging of Roland-Garros will be postponed by one week.
This decision has been discussed with the Grand Slam Board, and, given the exceptional circumstances, is fully supported by the Australian Open, Wimbledon and the US Open.
Given the considerable challenges ahead of the FFT in staging Roland-Garros, and to avoid further impact on the rest of the calendar, the grass court season between Roland-Garros and Wimbledon will be reduced by one week in 2021.
The Championships, Wimbledon, will begin as planned on 28 June 2021, with Qualifying taking place from 21 June 2021. The grass court season between Roland-Garros and Wimbledon will return to three weeks from 2022.
