Paris: The Paris Masters 2020, scheduled to be held from October 31 to November 8 at the Accor Arena will be played as planned, the French Tennis Federation (FFT) has confirmed.


To comply with the current restrictions applicable in Paris amid the Covid-19 pandemic, a maximum crowd of 1,000 spectators will be allowed per day, the tournament organisers said in a statement on their official Twitter handle.

World number one Novak Djokovic is the defending champion as he had defeated Canada's Denis Shapovalov in the summit clash.

The French Open grand slam now under way is allowing 5,000 spectators per day. The FFT was initially aiming to host daily crowds of 5,000 at both the Philippe-Chatrier and Suzanne-Lenglen showcourts while 1,500 fans at the smaller Simonne-Mathieu court.

The French Open which was originally scheduled to start in May had to be deferred because of the corona outbreak. It started on September 27 and will end on October 11.
