The Masters 1,000 in Paris will be played without an audience in the stands

The Rolex Paris Masters, the last 1,000 Masters of the 2020 season, will be played without an audience. In the absence of official confirmation On the part of the Parisian tournament, the competition will be played at the Accor Arena from October 31 to November 8, but without fans in the stands.

Thus the initial plan of the organizers is disrupted, who hoped to celebrate the tournament with at least a thousand spectators per day (as happened at Roland Garros) but the latest measures decreed by the government of Emmanuel Macron to stop the advance of the coronavirus (including the curfew in Paris and eight other cities in France) have led to the decision to play without an audience.

Another tough news for the 1,000 Masters in Paris after Novak Djokovic, number one in the ATP ranking, gave up defending his title in the French capital to play in the Vienna tournament in search of more points to cement his leadership at the top of the ATP rankings. However, the tournament will feature several of the great rackets of the ATP circuit that will play one of the two tickets that remain available for the Nitto ATP Finals in London (November 15-22), which brings together the eight best tennis players of the season.
