When and Where to Watch French Open 2020




The French Open 2020 is finally underway after all the postponements and changes in schedule amid the uncertainty of the event being held, in the first place. The coronavirus pandemic pushed the event from the hot conditions in May-June to a Fall window of September-October.

Many expect the conditions to be very different this year given the new time frame. To add to this, matches that go late in the evening or in rainy conditions will be played under a roof on Court Philippe Chatrier for the first time.
