LONDON – The global tennis calendar has been thrown into further chaos after the decision by French Open organisers to postpone the Grand Slam, with players and rival tournaments critical of the apparently unilateral move. The event at Roland Garros, traditionally the second major of the season, was on Tuesday moved from a May 24 start date to September 20, meaning it would start just one week after the US Open, if that event remains in its original slot. Organisers said strict confinement measures imposed by the French government to tackle COVID had made it impossible to continue with preparations. French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli said: “We have made a difficult yet brave decision in this unprecedented situation, which has evolved greatly since last weekend. Organisers of the Grand Slam in New York acknowledged it might need to be moved but, in a scarcely veiled dig at the French Open organisers, said they would not go it alone. The rescheduled French Open would also clash with the start of a series of Asian tournaments and the Laver Cup team competition, due to take place in Boston from September 25 to The grass court season is still in place. In another barb fired at Roland-Garros organisers, both tours and the International Tennis Federation said the pandemic demands “greater collaboration than ever from everyone in the tennis community in order for the sport to move forward collectively in the best interest of players, tournaments and fans”. British doubles player Jamie Murray queried the apparent lack of coordination at the top of the game. Canada’s Vasek Pospisil, a member of the ATP player council, was strongly critical of the unilateral way the French Open was postponed.

They have previously done tennis with a reputable club locally but they MUCH prefer allstars.
I have also seen a marked improvement in their playing skill and enjoyment of playing tennis since they left the other club and joined all stars. Thank you! I cannot thank the instructor, Finlay, enough for his patience, perserverance and skill in keeping a small group of boys motivated. My daughter had a fantastic time and when I watched some of the camp the coaches seemed to really be enjoying themselves as well. My daughter is not very into sport but she came back from her first session with a huge grin, enthusiastic about tennis and her ability and asked if she could start weekly classes.
The coach had a great rapport with the kids and made learning fun. We have already signed up for the term time course. My 3 boys had a brilliant time at the Tooting tennis camp this week. They learnt so much, and had a lot of fun too.

For the season to get underway following the coronavirus worldwide lockdown, is one of the major problems which the tennis authorities are currently facing. Ons Jabeur, the year-old Tunisian who started the season with a breakthrough run to the quarter-finals at the Australian Open, would seem to have come up with a plan that does provide a universally acceptable answer allowing for the varying emerging timetables and the differing rules.
