Tennis Schedule 2020: Full ATP & WTA Calendar

Tennis Schedule 2020 Atp Wta

With the ATP and WTA tours suspended until August due to the coronavirus, a new-look tennis calendar has emerged for June and July.

A string of exhibition tournaments has been lined up to fill the void and, hopefully, prepare the game’s stars for more meaningful action – such as the US Open and French Open – in the months ahead.

Most will be played behind closed doors with social-distancing measures in place.

Many of the sport’s leading names have already signed up to play, including ATP world number one Novak Djokovic, who has set up his own Adria Tour in the Balkans which looks the pick of the men’s events as it will also feature Dominic Thiem, Alex Zverev and Marin Cilic.

Another event to look out for will be the Ultimate Tennis Showdown at the Mouratoglu Academy in Nice where organizers are promising four current top-10 players, with Stefanos Tsitsipas widely expected to be among them. David Goffin has already confirmed.

Former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is expected to play his first match since November in London later this month against the best British players. However, there is no news yet on a return to match play for Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer – the latter is still recovering after undergoing knee surgery in February.

On the women’s side, this month’s Credit One Bank Invitational looks the jewel in the crown.

Reigning US Open champion Bianca Andreescu is scheduled to return to action for the first time since October following injury, while Australian Open queen Sofia Kenin is also due to compete. Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, 2017 US Open winner Sloane Stephens and Olympic gold medallist Monica Puig are also on the entry list.

The ATP and WTA tours are currently due to resume on August 1.

As the calendars stand, the first events back are due to be the Citi Open in Washington (both tours) and the Mubadala Silicon Valley Classic in San Jose (WTA only).

Here’s a list of the exhibition tournaments coming your way in June and July. Many will be streamed via social media platforms and bookmaker sites with betting odds likely to be offered on most, if not all, matches.
