    Will Roger Federer step back?

    Roland Garros’ decision to move the second Slam of the season to September generated a chain reaction, considering that after the move, the Parisian tournament would only start a week after the end of the US Open, and would coincide with Roger FedererLaver Cup in Boston.

    Some players have already made some statements about this decision. According to what reported by ESPN, and as we can read on the pages of Tennis World Italy, ITF intends to put an end to those players who miss the French Open to participate in other events on the calendar.

    Such a cause would constitute an unprecedented move and would have significant consequences on tennis in general. To solve this problem, the event created by Roger Federer could be forced to take a step back, despite the announcement made last week.

    Heinz Guenthardt, Swiss Fed Cup captain, said: “Unfortunately, nobody can ever agree. On the other hand, there are no alternatives. In Paris there are 128 men and 128 women, as well as qualifying and doubles.

    About a dozen players would be engaged in the Laver Cup. ATP must act accordingly as it is an association of players. Mainly because second choice tennis players rely heavily on Roland Garros’ earnings. “The situation remains controversial and, in any case, generally depends on the future evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Roger Federer has not made statements regarding the change of dates of Roland Garros: will he participate in the next edition of the French Open?
