In one of the most incredible, particular and dramatic seasons ever, the great tennis stars like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams still managed to shine, for one reason or another. The Palermo Ladies Open, 28th edition of the tournament, which is part of the WTA International category and played at the Country Time Club of Palermo in Italy, from 3 to 9 August 2020, was the first tournament after the suspension of tennis due to the pandemic of COVID-19.
The tennis players are back to play an official event after nearly five months of forced hiatus. Jil Teichmann was the defending champion of the tournament, but she decided not to take part in this edition. In the final Fiona Ferro defeated Anett Kontaveit with the score of 6-2, 7-5.
This tournament represented the resumption of the most atypical season in the history of the Game, culminating in the following months very crowded with events, culminating in the US Open, the Autumn Roland Garros and the ATP Finals.
