The tennis world could be confused after reports from the French Open is postponed, which could see a knock-on effect affecting the ATP and WTA schedule.

Roland Garros will be postponed by a week, starting on May 30 instead of May 23, sports daily LEquipe reported Wednesday.

WOW: Outrage over the official’s ‘disgusting’ comment to the Australian tennis player

OUCH: Uncomfortable truth about ‘Big 3’ revealed in the chaos of Miami Open

But the impact of delaying it for a week is far-reaching, with players already signing up for grass tournaments between and at the end of Wimbledon.

French President Emmanuel Macron returned the country to lockdown because of another wave of Covid-19 that hit the nation.

While major sporting events have been largely spared, France’s Sport Minister admitted that there were discussions to change the date of the match.

The 2020 tournament was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which eventually took place in late September and early October.

The event usually starts on the fourth Sunday of May and ends in early June.

But the latest report shocked the tennis world as the community realized the impact a delay could have on the schedule for the second year in a row.

In addition, leading tennis reporter Ben Rothenberg pointed out that the late notice was just as “ crazy ” about the tennis players.

Alize Cornet strikes out after reports

French tennis star Alize Cornet heard the news when she was told during a post-game interview at the Charleston Open, an American clay court tournament.

“It remains between us, but our sports minister is a disaster,” a shocked-looking Cornet told Tennis Channel.

“Sorry I have nothing against her, but she makes bad decisions for the sport. It’s like she doesn’t care.

“I know it comes from the government, it could also come from the tournament because I heard they might have more people if they postpone a week.

“Still, I think it’s a pretty selfish decision, to be honest, because the calendar will suffer from this postponement.”

Cornet said she understood why this decision could be made during the Covid-19 pandemic, but was disappointed.
