French Open Hot by COVID positives


Organisers say five players have been withdrawn from the French Open qualifying tournament after two players and a coach tested positive for COVID-19.

The qualifiers will begin later on Monday, with the main draw set to commence on Sept. 27.

Organisers did not reveal the names of those who had been pulled.

The French Open will be held from Sept. 27-Oct. 11 after being moved from its usual late May-June slot.
