French Open 2020: Andy Murray, Eugenie Bouchard Handed Wildcard Entries


France: Andy Murray, Eugenie Bouchard and Tsvetana Pironkova have received wildcard entries to the French Open which begins later this month.

This was announced by the tournament organisers on Monday.

Briton Murray, a former world number one and finalist at Roland Garros in 2016, was also handed a wildcard entry into the US Open last month where he reached the second round in his first Grand Slam after hip surgery last year.

Canada’s Bouchard, who reached the French Open semi-finals in 2014, has been playing claycourt tournaments since the season restarted last month and got to the final of the Istanbul Open where she lost in three sets on Sunday.

Bulgaria’s Pironkova was also given a wildcard entry into the main draw at Roland Garros.

The French Open, originally scheduled for May-June, was postponed to September 27-October 11 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
