Roland Garros 2020: Rafael Nadal’s SUPER cross-backhand

Roland Garros 2020: Rafael Nadal's SUPER cross-backhand

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. Rafa Nadal Is playing against Diego Schwartzman to reach his 13th French Open final.

The Spainiard won a great point with a super cross-backhand after a very hard rally!
