French Open tennis Live Stream: How to watch Roland Garros 2020 tennis online
Four months later than planned, French Open tennis is here – bringing the great and good from the tennis world together (minus Roger Federer) at the Stade Roland Garros. You can watch every swipe, swing and smash with a 2020 French Open live stream no matter where in the world you are. Read on for all the details – and how you can watch the tennis absolutely FREE.
Rafael Nadal is back to defend his men’s singles title, but world No. 1 and reigning women’s singles champion Ashleigh Barty has decided not to compete because of coronavirus concerns.
Nadal, the King of Clay, secured his 12th French Open victory at Roland Garros last year with a win over Dominic Thiem in the final. That was the third Grand Slam final of Thiem’s career and also the third Grand Slam final defeat, but the Austrian finally won his first Slam at Flushing Meadows earlier this month, and he’ll be dreaming of making it two in a row.
Novak Djokovic, remember, was thrown out of the US Open after accidentally hitting a ball at a line judge in a fit of rage, and hasn’t won the French Open since 2016. The Serb would love to lift the Coupe des Mousquetaires as the pantomime villain of the tennis world.
The women’s side of the competition has been blown wide open by the withdrawal of Barty and Naomi Osaka, and talk of Serena’s elusive record-equalling 24th Grand Slam is starting up again. Astonishingly, the last singles Slam she won was in January 2017, and while she fell short at the US Open, the quality of the opponents she faced there in Sloane Stephens, Maria Sakkari and Victoria Azarenka, should have blown away some cobwebs – and doubters. Williams turns 39 on the eve of the tournament, and what better way of silencing the critics than smashing the competition?
It’s the last Grand Slam of the year, and here’s how you can live stream all the French Open 2020 tennis action from wherever you are in the world.
How to watch a French Open live stream from outside your country

But if you try to watch your domestic coverage from somewhere outside your home country, you’ll soon find a problem – geo-blocking. That’s where the broadcaster prevents you from watching your usual feed from abroad. It’s a common problem for sports fans all over the world.
