Roland-Garros: day ended on the side courses due to rain, spectators reimbursed

The matches initially scheduled on the Simonne-Mathieu court and the annex courts at Roland-Garros were canceled on Wednesday due to rain, the French Tennis Federation said. While the rain fell continuously at Roland-Garros, “there will be no resumption of matches today (Wednesday) on the Simonne-Mathieu court and the annex courts” indicated the FFT in a press release.

Spectators reimbursed thanks to the two-hour playing rule

All the matches in the second round, which were to be played on this fourth day, began in the morning, from 11 a.m., before being quickly interrupted.
Thus, “given that there was less than two hours of play”, ticket holders of the courts concerned “will be fully refunded”, we can also read. Concerning the reimbursement of tickets, the rules of the tournament are clear: if the playing time of the day is less than two hours due to bad weather, in which case the price of the ticket will be fully refunded, within a period of up to July 31.

Of the 32 matches scheduled, only eight of them will (or have been) completed, being played on the Philippe-Chatrier court or the Suzanne-Lenglen court.
