Citi Open Canceled, US Open Still On

The Citi Open, which was scheduled to start next month as the ATP Tour’s first tournament back, has been canceled due to COVID-19 and international travel restrictions.

This decision causes many to doubt whether or not the US Open will be played, or if the ATP Tour will come back in 2020 at all. The Citi Open Chairman, Mark Ein, said that due to the current COVID-19 and travel conditions, that the tournament couldn’t be played.

Still, the US Open Chairman, Stacey Allaster, reiterated that plans for a doubleheader in New York, with the Western & Southern Open and US Open, were still going ahead.

If the ATP Tour doesn’t add another event between now and the Western & Southern Open, that will be the only tournament played before the US Open.
