With the 56th "Dana Show" ending last night, the 2020 French Open officially came to an end. This is a special Grand Slam tournament that can stay in the memory of fans for a long time. Under the clouds of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, Roland Garros, who welcomed the tennis master for the first time in the fall, is still full of controversy, but it also brings a lot of new ideas.
As early as the preparation period at the beginning of the year, the French Open Organizing Committee was pushed into the whirlpool of public opinion several times because of a series of self-talking actions.
According to the earliest plan, the French Open will be held from May 24 to June 7 this year. However, due to the epidemic, all tennis events after the Australian Open have been suspended. Unexpectedly, on the evening of March 18, the French Open Organizing Committee suddenly announced that it would adjust this year’s tournament to September 20 to October 4, and then because the US Open decided to proceed as planned, the organizing committee adjusted the time to September 26 to October 11. Self-talking and changes in the day and night, naturally made him criticized.
The problem does not stop there. The difficulty of competing in two Grand Slam tournaments in a short period of time and the repeated epidemics have made Roland Garros's starlight this year dimmed and its appeal greatly reduced. The psychological gap from the initial promise of "opening 11,500 seats every day" to the eventual admission of only 1,000 spectators not only made the fans dissatisfied, but also caused the organizing committee to be overwhelmed by refunds and reassure the audience.
At the moment when the game started, many people found that the situation in the French Open seemed to be pretty good. The new atmosphere in the field also brought a lot of gains to this special event.
This year Roland Garros’s centre court, Philippe Chatier Stadium, finally has a "hat". This device not only brings better game continuity, but also more chance. When the roof is closed, the lighting, humidity, temperature and even the flatness of the stadium will bring variables, adding to the excitement of the game to a certain extent.
今年，罗兰·加洛斯（Roland Garros）的中央法院菲利普·查蒂埃球场（Philippe Chatier Stadium）终于有了“帽子”。该设备不仅带来更好的游戏连续性，而且带来更多机会。当屋顶关闭时，照明，湿度，温度甚至体育场的平坦度都会带来变化，在一定程度上增加了比赛的趣味性。
The limited number of spectators is not bad. Every word and deed of the players on the field will be clearly captured, bringing a brand new experience to the spectators on site and in front of the TV. No wonder many people laughed: "This is the quietest and most'transparent' French Open so far."
The French Open in 2020 has finally come to an end. While the cloud of the epidemic has not yet dissipated, I hope that when we meet next time, Roland Garros will be less "surprised" and more "happy". (Xinmin Evening News reporter Lu Weixin)
