9 big questions ahead of 2020 French Open

Schedule

Qualifying gets underway on September 21.

As for the main draw, the event's official website carries a provisional schedule.

Who is playing?

In the women's draw, defending champion Ash Barty has already withdrawn citing coronavirus concerns. 2018 winner Simona Halep is the bookies' favourite, while US Open champion Naomi Osaka is out with injury after her US Open triumph. Serena Williams' hunt for that ever-elusive record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title will continue after her semi-final exit at Flushing Meadows.

In the men's draw, Rafael Nadal returns after skipping the US Open as he bids to draw level with Roger Federer in the men's all-time Grand Slam list (20). Novak Djokovic is also in the field after his shock disqualification at the US Open for striking a line judge, while US Open champion Dominic Thiem - perhaps the biggest obstacle between Nadal and a record-extending 13th title at Roland Garros - will compete. Andy Murray will also hope to build on reaching the second round in New York. Roger Federer is ruled out for the rest of 2020 after having a knee operation. Outspoken Australian Nick Kyrgios will also miss the tournament.

Are fans allowed?

Organisers are going to admit up to 11,500 fans each day across three showcourts at Roland Garros despite the deteriorating coronavirus situation in France.
