2020 Madrid Open Canceled

Due to rising concerns involving the COVID-19 pandemic, tournament organizers for the Madrid Open have decided to cancel the 2020 tournament.

The Madrid Open, a Masters 1000 ATP event and a Premier Mandatory WTA event, was scheduled to be played from September 13th – September 20th. This means that the tournament would have began immediately after the US Open, which is still scheduled to be played from August 31st – September 13th.

Despite having players to the level of Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic committed to playing in the tournament, public health officials discouraged its presence. The director of the tournament, Feliciano Lopez, received a letter from Madrid’s deputy public health council, Antonio Zapatero, “discouraging the event due to the impossibility of ensuring health security”.

Without the Madrid Open, players will have little time to adjust from the hardcourts at Flushing Meadows and the red clay of Roland Garros, which is scheduled to begin on September 27th.
