Due to the current tennis shutdown, several tennis tournaments have been cancelled in 2020, including the Wimbledon Championships. However, some events like Roland Garros or the Internazionali d'Italia in Rome are hoping to play their events later in the year.
While a lot depends on how the global pandemic unfolds, the organizers in Rome are hopeful of holding the tournament in September. A further indication that shows the willingness of the organizers to play the Rome tournament is seen through an email sent to ticket holders where the organizers have said to the ticket holders that they are hopeful of playing the tournament in September.
it clear to the holders of tickets for the Internazionali d'Italia 2020 to wait and want to play the tournament in September . "Dear tennis friend, as you may have already read in the media, in the middle of June ATP and WTA, the two associations that manage the world tennis calendar, should communicate when and with which program the international circuit of 2020 will restart.
The hypothesis at the moment is that the Internazionali BNL d'Italia can take place in September. But we must wait for the certainty, linked to the extraordinary situation of the Coronavirus. We therefore hope to be able to give you more information on the Tournament and on the use of the tickets purchased by you as soon as possible.
We hope like you to be able to return to play, to participate and to cheer for our favourite players" The event was originally scheduled between May 10-17 2020 and is one of the three ATP Masters 1000 events contested on clay.
