We know there are daily questions within your lives, your communities and around the globe.
We, therefore, want to be as communicative as possible due to the many uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organizations governing professional tennis are working collaboratively and proactively to make key decisions related to the return of this great game to the sports landscape. First and foremost, the process prioritizes the safety and health of the players and fans.
In the case of the 2020 Winston-Salem Open, which is part of the summer-long hard court season known as the US Open Series, the board of directors and the staff continue to plan for this year’s tournament. Admittedly, we are in a holding pattern as data changes frequently and new trends will emerge over the next 30 to 45 days.
We will carefully monitor this evolving situation and its potential impact on our event. We plan to make a final determination by the beginning of June, at the latest, after consulting with public health experts, the relevant governmental agencies, the ATP and our partners at the US Open Series.
Your patience with us as we navigate this uncharted territory is greatly appreciated.
We hope you are all staying home, staying safe and able to stay healthy.
