WTA Proposed Calendar for the rest of 2020 season


Belgian tennis player Alison van Uytvanck mistaked published a new women's circuit calendar on Twitter. Although she deleted it after a short while, the new work calendar began to spread rapidly on social networks.

This new calendar expects to actually start playing in early August. Specifically, from Monday, August 3. Then the tournament should start in Palermo, Italy, and a week later the event in Washington, USA.

Although the events in Charleston and Prague are also listed in the calendar for these August dates, as the Ubitennis website mentions, these tournaments have been canceled and will not be played.

What, on the other hand, is firmly on the calendar is the Cincinnati tournament, which will be the warm-up before the US Open. The US Open should take place from August 31. Eventually, the women's circuit should return to Europe.

In September, clay businesses are planned in Madrid, Istanbul, Rome and Strasbourg. After them, the French Open will start, which is to be played from September 28 to October 10.

Subsequently, the WTA will head to Asia, specifically to South Korea and China. This is a very important period for the women's circuit, as it is in China that a huge amount of money is invested in tennis, as evidenced by the fact that the Champions Tournament in Shenzhen and the WTA Elite Trophy in Zhuhai are to be played in mid-November.

Of course, the situation around the coronavirus pandemic may change, which could significantly confuse the WTA's plans. However, with the current development, it seems that the women's circuit is already counting on the August restart of the season.
