The tennis season has been stopping since March due to the corona crisis, and no matches are played until July 31 anyway. There was a chance that that matchless period would be extended, but tournaments should be played again in two months.
The ATP plans to resume the season on August 14 with the hard court tournament in Washington, followed by Cincinatti’s Masters tournament. Those events serve as important preparations for the US Open, which begins on August 31.
After the Grand Slam tournament in New York, the prestigious clay tournaments in Madrid and Roma will be overtaken, so that the players can prepare optimally for Roland Garros. The Grand Slam tournament in Paris was supposed to start in May, but was canceled due to the corona crisis.
Roland Garros was scheduled to start on September 20, but will now be held a week later (September 27-October 11). The qualifying matches will be played the week before. In mid-July there will be a new update of the ATP on the tournaments after Roland Garros, such as the events in Asia.
The WTA calendar looks largely the same. Kiki Bertens can return at the beginning of August, because the WTA wants to resume the season on August 3 with the clay tournament in Palermo. The Dutch reached the final in the Italian city last year.
