The ATP and WTA Tours released updated calendars for the rest of the year, with the ATP Tours returning to action on Friday, August 13 at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C., while the WTA Tour will resume at the Palermo Ladies Open on Monday, August 3.
“Our objective has been to reschedule as many tournaments as possible and salvage as much of the season as we can,” said ATP Chairman Andrea Gaudenzi. “It has been a truly collaborative effort and we hope to add more events to the calendar as the situation evolves. I would like to recognize our tournaments’ efforts to operate during these challenging times, as well as our players who will be competing under different conditions. At every turn, ensuring that the resumption of the Tour takes place in a safe environment will be paramount.”

WTA Chairman and CEO Steve Simon said:
“Having assessed the global outlook for travel in the latter half of the year, working with our medical experts on providing the safest environment possible, and working through the diverse operational challenges for running events safely in the context of COVID-19, the WTA is pleased to release a calendar for the remainder of the 2020 season. For now, the vital energy of spectators in stadiums will be greatly missed, but our broadcast and social media partners are exploring news to engage with our fantastic fans. It is our sincere hope and desire that we will be able to return to play this summer.”
