The 2020 French Open is scheduled to run from May 24th to June 7th, but the Roland-Garros is wasting no time in adjusting for the coronavirus outbreak. Roland-Garros announced on Twitter that the tournament has been rescheduled for September 20th to October 4th.

As of the postponement, Rafael Nadal was a heavy favorite on the men’s side, installed by DraftKings Sportsbook at -112. Novak Djokovic is second on the odds list at +275 followed by Dominic Thiem at +350. The next closest are Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev at +2000.

Simona Halep is the women’s tournament favorite at +350. She is followed by Ashleigh Barty (+800), Kiki Bertens (+1000), and Bianca Vanessa Andreescu (+1300).

The next question is what Wimbledon and the US Open will plan on doing. Wimbledon is scheduled for June 29th to July 12th and the U.S. Open is scheduled for August 24th to September 13th.
