The Citi Open, scheduled to begin August 13, has been cancelled due to coronavirus concerns.

The tournament released a statement today, saying that it did everything it could to bring tennis back.

"After months of tireless work by our team and close collaboration with our many stakeholders, we are heartbroken to announce that we must unfortunately postpone the 52nd Citi Open until the summer of 2021.

With only 23 days left until the start of the tournament, there are too many unresolved external issues, including various international travel restrictions as well as troubling health and safety trends, that have forced us to make this decision now in fairness to our players, suppliers and partners, so that they can have certainty around their planning."


Meanwhile the US Open has released a statement, saying that the decision in no way affects its plans to hold the Western and Southern Masters and US Open in a bubble in New York later in August.
