The Roland-Garros tournament will adapt its spectator capacity according to the restrictions in place as the lockdown is gradually lifted in France, the
various stages of which were announced by the French President on 29th April.
After the first week of qualifying matches, which are always intense, the main draw will kick off on Sunday 30th May with four matches scheduled on the show
courts and plenty of matches to watch on the outside courts, from 11 am onwards.

Spectators in French Open
In terms of spectator capacity, here are the three phases to keep in mind:
· From 24th to 28th May, the qualifying rounds will be played without spectators.
· From 30th May to 8th June, the stadium will welcome 5,388 spectators per day. Each “ERP” can be used to 35% of its total capacity, welcoming up to a
maximum of 1,000 spectators. Stick or twist? Serena Williams and Roger Federer could be facing dilemmas.
The two GOATs are on the comeback trail and Wimbledon looms large. With just over a month to go until the third Grand Slam of the year, both Williams and Federer have decided the best way to prepare is to try and win some matches on clay. But the surface is not lending itself to either player so far.
Williams is 1-2 on clay after losing on her return at the Italian Open and then winning once in Parma before falling in straight sets to Katerina Siniakova. Federer is 0-1 following his three-set loss to Pablo Andujar at the Geneva Open. Neither are set to play again until the French Open, which starts on May 30. Then it will be over to the grass.

Could a change of course be on their minds?
They will surely have noted that both Andy Murray and Stan Wawrinka have opted to skip the French Open as they prepare for the summer. Murray is coming back from a groin injury, although he did play doubles at the Italian Open, while Wawrinka hasn’t played since March after having “a small procedure” on his left foot. Williams is not looking to come back from injury, but Federer is in a similar position to Murray and Wawrinka as he bids to get back to full fitness following two knee operations in the last year.

Federer: I expect better from myself
Williams: Federer is a ‘genius’ and the ‘greatest player’
He has been very open about his aims and his process so far. “Roland Garros is not the goal,” he said after losing in Geneva, which ended his 32-match winning streak in Switzerland. “The goal is the grass, so I still have time.”
He also said before the tournament that he thinks any match practice is better than no match practice.
“I want to play a lot of tennis,” he said. “I’ll hit a lot of balls and hope it will help me for the grass courts.
“I’m convinced that hitting a lot of balls – you have to really power through the ball on clay because otherwise you’re not going to have an impact on this surface – is going to be beneficial for me for the grass-court season.”
Williams has not been as open about her planning as she continues to strive for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title. It seems unlikely that she expects to win her next major in Paris considering her clay preparation and the fact she has only won there three times, the last of which was in 2015. So would she be better following Murray’s lead and focusing on the grass? Perhaps entering the Nottingham Open alongside Murray and sister Venus?

Not going to Paris – a city she loves – would be a hard decision, and, like Federer, Williams has acknowledged the importance of court time as she looks to build up her match fitness.
“I just gotta get there,” she said after losing at the Italian Open. “Maybe I do need a few more matches…I just feel like it’s different. I have been training for months, but it feels definitely different on clay to make that last adjustment.
“I feel like sometimes I’m not playing as many matches. I’m just doing a lot of training. So it’s actually really good to get out and to play some matches.”
For Federer and Williams there’s the added complication this year that the French Open overlaps with the start of the grass season after being pushed back a week. The Nottingham Open and Stuttgart Open will both run alongside the second week of the Grand Slam, then there will only be two more weeks of grass preparation for Wimbledon. So if Federer or Williams reach the second week of the French Open then they will have at least a week less on grass than they could have if they chose not play in Paris.
· From 9th June, Philippe-Chatrier court will be allowed to welcome 5,000 people, but only spectators with a “health pass” will be granted access to the
stadium. The number of spectators allowed inside the stadium will be gradually increased to 13,146 spectators in total on 9th and 10th June. Each “ERP” will
be used to 65% of its total capacity, for a maximum of 5,000 spectators in each.
Night sessions for the first time
From 31st May to 9th June: one match scheduled at 9 pm every day on Philippe-Chatrier
Equipped with a roof since the 2020 tournament, the Philippe-Chatrier court will host night sessions for the first time this year. From 31st May to 9th June,
there will be three matches scheduled on Centre Court during the day, from 12 noon, plus a fourth match scheduled to start at 9 pm. Each of the ten-night
sessions will feature one of the day’s top-billed matches (men’s or women’s singles)
Health and safety protocols?
From player areas to spectator seating, masks to social distancing, hand sanitiser dispensers to “contact tracing”, various health and safety measures are
being rolled out.
At the same time, a number of outdoor seating areas are being set up within the stadium grounds. This year only, spectators will be allowed to eat at their
