Chris kermode, former ATP president and advisor to the Monte-Carlo Country Club, one of the world’s leading tennis clubs, said the facilities should open its doors for the Masters 1000 on April 11 and 18.
A priori there would be no changes in the calendar for the tour on brick dust and the only question is knowing how much audience you can count on.
“We depend on what the French authorities tell us in that regard. Most likely in mid-January we will begin to monitor the progress of the pandemic and the vaccine process, to determine how many people will be able to come as a public. It is difficult to predict, but what I can guarantee 100% is that the tournament will be played, although we do not know in what circumstances. Whatever they are, we will endure, “he said.
It should be noted that France is one of the countries with the most COVID-19 infections and both Roland Garros and the Masters 1000 in Paris had a round trip with the capacity that they could enter their stands.
