Professional sports tournaments in France may continue despite the country’s order in a second national lockout, Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu said Thursday morning

« The best athletes and professional athletes will be able to continue training And they will also be able to continue to compete since travel for professional reasons is allowed, » said Maracineanu

His announcement came just hours after French President Emmanuel Macron said a new coronavirus lockdown would be introduced until at least December 1

Maracineanu’s speech to the country’s National Assembly was an immediate boost for the Paris Masters tennis event to be held in the French capital from Monday

Slovakian player Lukas Lacko released a statement from ATP Player Relations that the French Tennis Federation (FFT) will be holding the closed-door tournament at the Bercy Arena, with a capacity of 20,000 seats, at the east of town

« However, additional government clearance is required, » ATP said in a message to « players and team members »

« The FFT will continue to dialogue with the French government to confirm its ability to play behind closed doors as soon as possible and under what conditions exactly »

World number two Rafael Nadal, who won a 13th French Open at Roland Garros in Paris just over two weeks ago, is the tournament’s seed
