Many fans are already thinking of the return of a figure like Rafael Nadal and the reappearance of Novak Djokovic after his disqualification at the US Open. In addition, the 2020 men’s calendar confirmed that there will be four new tournaments in October, all ATP 250 category.
In the week of October 12-18, a stopover of the ATP circuit will be held in Cologne, Germany, on hard courts, and another in Sardinia, Italy, on clay. Both will coincide with that of Saint Petersburg, in Russia.
In the following week, which runs from the 19th to the 25th of next month, Colonia 2 will be played in German territory, again on a concrete surface and with an individual team of 28 players.
In that week there will also be official action in Antwerp, in Belgium, plus the traditional ATP in Moscow, in the Russian capital. Meanwhile, the one in Stockholm, Sweden, was suspended.
