The Paris Masters, in danger due to the curfew in France

The curfew decreed by the Government of Emmanuel Macron puts at risk the celebration of the tournament, scheduled for November 2 to 8 in the Parisian city.


The announcement by the Government of Emmanuel Macron to decree a curfew from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. for the next four weeks in Paris and eight other major French cities to stop the advance of the coronavirus could have a direct impact on the Rolex Paris Masters, the Paris 1,000 Masters, which is scheduled to take place from October 31 to November 8.

With the new measure of the French Executive, the tournament will not be able to have an audience in the stands (initially it was planned that 1,000 people would attend per day, as it happened at Roland Garros) and it may have to make changes in its schedules and suppress the sessions nightclubs that hosted the big matches each day.

In this way, the organization of the Rolex Paris Masters will have to make speculations to try to square the matches within the time limits established by the curfew, which would mean bringing the start of the day forward.If this were not possible, the tournament would be forced to announce the cancellation of the last major tournament on the ATP calendar before the Nitto ATP Finals in London (15-22 November). On October 7, the tournament organization announced that the tournament would go ahead on the scheduled dates but it will be necessary to see if they do not change their plans after Macron's new measures.
