Tennis has been shut down for months but is finally set to return in August. Here are the 3 biggest predictions for the season’s return.
The 2020 ATP season is just over one month away from finally returning to form. August 14th is the official start date for the tour’s return and will begin with the US hard court swing. First up is the ATP 500 Citi Open in Washington, DC. The Masters 1000 Western & Southern Open will follow a week later and will be the final tune-up for the US Open.
Usually held in Cincinnati, the 1000 Series event will be held in Flushing Meadows to contain and protect as many of the US Open competitors as possible.
The ATP will move to the controversial clay-court swing once the New York major championship is complete. Coinciding with the US Open’s 2nd week is the ATP 250 Generali Open in Kitzbuhel, which will be available to any player that either didn’t play the US Open or have already lost.
September 13th begins two weeks of Masters 1000 events in Rome and Madrid. Roland Garros is set to begin on September 27th.
Rankings will be unfrozen once the season resumes and the world’s best players will be ready to go — maybe.
