The International Tennis Federation announced plans to resume play on the Junior, Seniors, Wheelchair and Beach Tennis circuits.
The plans have been developed in collaboration with the committee for each tour and approved by the ITF Board, with the health and safety of all involved as the primary focus in decision making.
Tournaments are scheduled to resume on both the ITF World Tennis Tour Juniors and the ITF Beach Tennis World Tour in the week beginning August 31, 2020.
No firm dates have yet been set for Seniors and adaptive tennis athletes (including Gustavo Fernández) to return to play, but each tour committee has decided that play will not resume on either tour before the week that starts on August 31, 2020.
Tournament schedules will remain subject to change reflecting the continued impact of Covid-19. All ITF tours have been suspended due to the pandemic since March this year, with ratings frozen as of March 16, 2020.
In order to support a safe return to international tennis tournaments, the ITF has designed protocols for all tournament hosts and participants to mitigate the risk of exposure and spread of Covid-19. The protocols will be updated periodically as the global situation regarding Covid-19 continues to change.
