The mixed doubles event will be back at the French Open after it was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though it will return with a slimmed down draw, organizers said on Tuesday.


"The mixed doubles event, which was ... cancelled last year due to the health crisis, is back this year at Roland Garros," the French tennis federation (FFT) said.


"This competition will benefit from an adapted format with a 16-pair draw."


The mixed doubles usually features 32 pairs.
