The British Andy Murray said he is “skeptical” about the conduct of the tournament of Roland-Garros, even postponed the end of September because of the outbreak of coronavirus, but ensures that there will be “no doubt” his return to Grand Slam if the conditions allow it. “I’ll play no doubt on the clay, if it is possible. But I am skeptical about the fact that it is possible “, said Wednesday to CNN the ex-N. 1 in the world, who has not played a match in a Grand Slam since the Australian Open in 2019. The organizers parisians were moved to the only Major on clay in the late spring to early fall, from September 20 to 4 October, one week after the end of the US Open.
The tennis season is interrupted as a result of the pandemic for the last month and did not resume until mid-July at the earliest after the cancellation of Wimbledon. “I would be surprised if the sport took over by September, but we’ll see,” added Murray.
