French Open 2020 Schedule – Day and Date wise matches break down

Night Matches for French Open (Roland Garros)

For the First time in history, French Open is going to host night matched in the year 2020. Philippe Chatrier court will be ready to host night matches for French Open after having a roof in 2020 and matches in the next year 2021.

French Tennis Federation president Bernard Giudicelli has said that

“The night sessions in 2021 impose an organization which requires methodical and deep work, so that’s why we scheduled them in 2021 and not in 2020

Three matches during the day on Philippe Chatrier and one match in the night session,” Giudicelli said of the schedule. “So avoid ‘late night-time session.’ We won’t play between 11:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. in the morning” 

Court Chatrier will host one night session next year while all other tennis courts will have their own lights. Remember that there will be no tennis match after 11:00 PM (Paris Standard Time).
