The factor for this is the persistent restrictions with reference to the coronavirus. This indicates that no ATP competitions happen in China in the 3rd year straight. Six locations in the U.S.A., South Korea, Israel, Italy as well as Spain received tournament licenses for one year from the ATP.

The Women’s Tennis Organization WTA had already validated in April to absolutely say goodbye to tournaments in China this year. The WTA had already made this choice due to the instance of the previous Chinese top gamer Peng Shuai in 2014. WTA manager Steve Simon explained 3 months ago that he would certainly really hope for a return to China in the coming year.


Peng had later refuted the claims. During the Olympic Wintertimes Games in Beijing in February, she had met with IOC President Thomas Bach for a discussion, since then there was absolutely nothing to see from her. Peng won 2 Conquest titles in increases, consisting of 2013 in Wimbledon.

Peng’s situation relocated the world for months after implicated of sexual abuse in the Weibo social network last November. State censorship had actually also blocked every debate on the Chinese Internet.
