Tennis tournaments in china canceled - stuttgart paused

Both referred to an order by the supreme sports authority of china in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The authorities had announced two weeks ago that, with the exception of the tests for the 2022 winter olympics in beijing, "and other important events, in principle no further international sporting events would be held".

Among the tennis events affected are the china open in beijing, the men’s masters tournament in shanghai and the women’s WTA finals in shenzhen. "We are extremely disappointed that our world-class events in china will not take place this year," WTA head steve simon said in a statement. But the decision was respected. ATP managing director andrea gaudenzi explained that it was with a heavy heart that the tournaments had to be cancelled.

Both professional organizations announced that they would continue to work on a new preliminary calendar. The ATP wants to present it within the next two weeks. A new decision on the US open is also expected in the near future. The grand slam tournament in new york is actually scheduled to begin on 31. August will take place. Just a few days ago, however, the organizers of the ATP tournament in washington canceled the event, which was scheduled to begin on the 14th of this month. August the men’s tour was to start again.

The organizers of the WTA tennis tournament in stuttgart, however, do not want to use the weeks that have become free in the fall to make up for the porsche grand prix after all. "In the short term, it was very difficult. For this year, the topic is through," stuttgart’s tournament director markus gunthardt told the deutsche presse-agentur. The swiss also pointed out that the hall capacity was not likely to be given. For this reason, a postponement was already out of the question in the spring. The high-class sand-court event had been scheduled from 20. Until 26. April should take place.

The organizers are currently working on various scenarios for next year’s edition of the most important german women’s tournament. "I assume that it can take place. The question is in what form," said gunthardt. He expects that spectators will be allowed. The question was, what proportion of the capacity could be used?.

The ladies’ tour is scheduled for 3. August in palermo after a five-month break from the tournament. The men’s tournament, scheduled to start in washington in mid august, has been cancelled.
