It takes quite a lot for ITF to cancel one of their four biggest events every year and ATP just cancelled its tour for six weeks.

Do you think ITF will try to ask/demand ATP to reschedule their calendar in Summer, i.e. for example RG and Wimbledon more or less back to back?

It's impossible and impractical to schedule Wimbledon and RG back to back, Especially if the situation is bad enough for RG to be cancelled in the first place, then Wimbledon would likely be cancelled as well, since there's only a 3 week gap between RG and W. Highly unlikely things would improve in that time frame. Plus even if you were to try and scheduled them together, there is no place in the scheduling. Grass season would have to be cancelled, leaving players to jump from clay to grass transition in less than a week. Which would not be desirable for the players.

So, if RG is cancelled, it will be cancelled for the season. There is no way to reschedule it later in the calendar without affecting the rest of the tour season calendar.

It's highly unlikely the Olympics would take place as well.

3 weeks between the end of RG and start of Wimbledon; but 5 weeks between both starts. Wimbledon has time, I'm cautiously optimistic it will go ahead, I don't believe Roland Garros will go ahead...

Truth be told, losing the French open would not bother many people, only Nadal fans. We know the winner already. If the French is cancelled, just give Nadal the trophy. He would have won it anyway.
Why do you suggest something that has no chance of happening

Yeah, the tournament is to blame for Rafa dominating it. You people are hilarious.
