Two legends were still among the players to beat seven years later, with Nadal seeking his 20th Major title and Williams the 24th in Paris in October 2020.

While Rafa remained in contention for his 13th Parisian trophy, Serena had to withdraw ahead of the second-round clash against Tsvetlana Pironkova due to an Achilles injury. After an excellent comeback in the opening set, Serena defeated Kristie Ahn in the first encounter, dominating the second set to find herself over the top.

Still, the Americans had to leave Paris, hoping to recover by the start of 2021. Asked about Serena after his second-round encounter, Nadal said he could not say much, as he did not know all the details and how serious the injury was.
