Draw is out.

Apparently four players were withdrawn because of positive Covid-19 tests (of themselves or members from their team).


Here's the draw:


Cecchinato vs Gulbis is the meeting of two former RG semifinalists. Unfortunately Ernie will lose this one, I'm afraid. He's in bad form since tennis resumed, and he was actually playing well before the hiatus. :(

Denis Istomin, Ernesto Escobedo, Pedja Krstin and Bernabé Zapata Miralles disappeared from the qualifying list this morning. In Krstin's and Zapata's case it is the coach who has OFFICIALLY tested positive for COVID.
Damir Dzumhur has also disappeared from the list in the last hours (Djokovic's opponent at the US Open First Round).

Many players have also disappeared from the Women's list.
The vacant spots in the Qualifying draw have to be taken by local French players, as foreign tennis players are unable to complete quarantine due to lack of time...

Thoughts?
Should the French Open go ahead?

Griekspoor with a tough first round (Altmaier). Also Kovalik in his quarter. If he plays like he did in the last weeks, he could have a change to qualify. Haase in qualies. Don't think he can beat Pedro Martinez to be honest.

Imagine Thiem or Rafa (or their coaches) positive and forfeited ^^

Should go ahead, as long as there are enough (128) players to play...

This doesn't sound promising.

Well let's hope this doesn't become something crazy
Let's hope not, but wouldn't be surprised if RAFA pulls the plug on RG.

He is still worried about this whole situation.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Good thing the main draw guys are still out of Paris. Hope they can contain this mess.

Potential shit show in the making.

'On the verge of testing positive' is baffling though.

test not complete but looks like it's going to be positive when it finishes processing is what I'd assume that means.

If you randomly test a lot of people, you are almost always going to find positives. No big deal, just bad luck for those who were withdrawn.
