Roland Garros 2020: Rafael Nadal vs Jannik Sinner's highlights

Finally here is the time for the Roland Garros 2020 (from 27 September to 11 October 2020), the 119th edition of the Open Era, on the clay-courts of Bois the Boulogne. This year, however, there are many doubts and threats regarding the tournament.

The Global Pandemic of Covid-19 is spreading again throughout the country, necessitating new lockdowns and new health containment measures to further prevent the rise of infections. For the French Open, in the summer, there were many hopes of getting the crowd back: at least 11,000 people a day were expected in the summer, which increased to 5,000 towards the beginning of September.

Now it could only be 1000 or something more. The most important novelties of this edition are obviously the retractable roof on the Philippe Chatrier and the lights, which will allow you to play indoor matches in the evening session.

There will be the conditions to play under the roof, and, so, indoor: what players could benefit of these new facilities? This will be a very unique edition, also because they will play in Autumn. Rafael Nadal confirms the semifinals again this year, beating the young Jannik Sinner in three sets, in a not too obvious match, especially in the first set, won by the Spaniard at the tie-break.

Final result 7-6 (4) 6-4 6-1. To reach the 4th final in a row (and the 13th of his career at the Roland Garros), now Nadal will have to face Diego Schwartzman.
