The Roland-Garros organizers are hamstrung by the inept idiots in government. They'd pack the stands if they could obviously.There will be - even if behind closed doors. Cases are pretty low in the UK at present due to half the population having been vaccinated. Nottingham, Birmingham Queens, Eastbourne and Wimbledon will 100% go ahead - whatever happens with the German and Dutch events.
But a disgusting decision by the French open - what difference will one week make in terms of health and safety. Very inconsiderate for the opening week of the grass court season in Rosmalen, Stuttgart and Nottingham. Can they sue Roland Garros? And for Queens and Halle - who start the day after the men's final.
Two years in a row - this has happened - and this time its a totally pointless move!
