The Citi Open, scheduled for next month in Washington, D.C., was supposed to be the first event back for the ATP Tour but has now been canceled.

It had been rumored for the last week that due to the coronavirus and international travel restrictions, the Citi Open had a long shot of being played. That is now official, and it adds some doubt to whether or not the US Open will be played at the end of August.

But Tournament Director Stacey Allaster told the New York Times: “We are all in.”

The ATP Tour is now set to begin in New York with the Western & Southern Open. The WTA Tour is scheduled to start on August 3 in Palermo, Italy.
