The 124th French Open began on September 21 and ends on October 11. The Grand Slam takes place at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, there will be no fans in the stands during the game, just like with the US Open.
In the women’s draw, the unseeded Iga Swiatek defeated No. 4 seed Sofia Kenin, 6-4, 6-1, to win her first Grand Slam title and first tile on the WTA tour. The 20-year-old Swiatek is the only other exceptional woman to win at Roland Garros in the open era (Jelena Ostapenko, 2017), and she is the first Polish player – male or female – to win a Grand Slam championship.
On the men’s side, Rafael Nadal captured his 13th French Open title with another win over Roland Garros over longtime rival Novak Djokovic. Nadal has now beaten Djokovic in seven of their eight matches on the red clay in Paris. “King of Clay” did not attend the US Open because he said he did not want to travel to New York in the middle of the pandemic, while “The Joker” was disqualified in New York after hitting a ball in frustration that hit a line woman.
