The 2020 French Open is a Grand Slam tennis tournament played on outdoor clay courts. It will be held at the Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, from 20 September to 4 October, comprising singles, doubles and mixed doubles play. Junior and wheelchair tournaments are also scheduled. Rafael Nadal is the three-time defending champion in men's singles, and Ashleigh Barty is the defending champion in women's singles.

It will be the 124th edition of the French Open and the last Grand Slam event of 2020. The main singles draws will include 16 qualifiers for men and 12 for women out of 128 players in each draw.

The tournament was originally supposed to start on 24 May and finish on 7 June, but was moved to the autumn schedule due to concerns over the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in France.

2020 will be the first year in which there is a retractable roof on the French tennis courts, after construction was completed on court Phillipe-Chatrier in late 2019, with plans in place to also have a roof on court Suzanne-Lenglen by 2023.[1] Additionally, it will be the first year in which poor light will not halt play, as floodlights will be in operation on the four main stadium courts. It is also the only Grand Slam to retain the advantage set in the final sets, whereas Australian Open and Wimbledon have now switched to tiebreaks.[2][3]
