Washington’s ATP 500, since August 14, marked the return of the ATP circuit. But there are rumors that the tournament could be canceled and thus delay the return of men’s tennis.
The Tennis Break News site says that the cancellation of Washington could be confirmed in the coming days. The European Union’s decision to keep its borders closed to the United States would be the main driver of that measure: if players had to be quarantined for two weeks and then compete in the dust. The end of the US Open coincides with the start of the Madrid Masters.
On the other hand, according to the same site, the confirmation of the US Open would be made between July 28 and 29.
