September 27, 2020 – October 11, 2020 – The final Grand Slam tournament of the year takes place in Paris, France, as tennis returns to the clay courts of Roland Garros. Traditionally played in May-June, the showpiece has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
World No.1 and 17-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic heads the men’s seeds at Roland Garros, bidding to close the gap to his great rival Roger Federer’s total of 20 Grand Slam titles. The Swiss will miss the tournament due to his ongoing recovery from knee surgery, and will return to action in 2021.
Clay court master and 12-time Roland Garros champion Rafael Nadal is seeded No.2, with U.S. Open winner Dominic Theim at No.3 and Daniil Medvedev at No.4 seed.
