TENNIS at the highest level is back – but some of it's biggest stars remain out of action.
Wimbledon was cancelled earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, while the US Open went ahead in early September despite Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Ashleigh Barty all opting out.
When is the 2020 French Open rescheduled for?
THIS year's French Open was originally slated for May 24 to June 7.
Nadal is looking to win yet another clay crown at Roland Garros and returns to the fold, but women's singles champion from 2019 Barty will not be appearing in Paris.
But following the unprecedented Covid-19 outbreak, tennis chiefs in France have acted to come up with new dates for the annual competition.
The tournament will now start on September 27, running through to the single's finals on October 11.
But the new dates have proved controversial, with the French Open now the final Slam of the year and being played just weeks after the US Open concluded.
