Tennis tournaments cancelled due to coronavirus


As the coronavirus COVID-19 continues to spread around the world, a number of WTA and ATP competitions have been either cancelled completely or postponed indefinitely.

“The outbreak of the coronavirus continues to cause disruption to many sporting events worldwide,” said the ATP in a statement. “We are liaising with our respective tournaments and local authorities where ATP Tour and ATP Challenger Tour events are played, with the health and safety of staff, players and fans as our top priority. ”

Here’s a running total of the impacted events so far, which are mainly concentrated in China and South Korea. However, by far the biggest cancellation has been the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. We’ll endeavour to update the list below regularly.
