    I totally misunderstood Pattyfan's intent regarding this thread. I've modified the title and I think all further cancellations, etc, should be here.

    I just saw this:

    WTA Strasbourg
    @WTA_Strasbourg

    Nous avons le regret d'annoncer que les Internationaux de Strasbourg ne se joueront pas à la date prévue en mai. L'événement devait initialement se tenir du 16 au 23 mai 2020. La Direction envisage un report à l'automne 2020.

    We regret to announce that the Strasbourg Internationals will not be played on the date scheduled for May. The event was initially scheduled to take place from May 16 to 23, 2020. Management plans to postpone it to fall 2020.

    I posted in the Tennis 2.0 thread, but both tours postponed longer. I'm not sure why we need a new thread as this is the state of tennis right now and we already seem to be posting stuff for a bit now in 2 different threads, so this feels like a third that will split it even further. But whatever the consensus is I'll go along with.

    ITF PRESS RELEASE

    18 March 2020

    All ITF events postponed until 8 June 2020

    After careful consideration and in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the ITF has postponed the ITF World Tennis Tour until Monday 8 June 2020. This aligns with the ATP and WTA’s suspension of their respective tours and the decision by the Fédération Française de Tennis to postpone Roland Garros.

    In addition to the suspension of the men’s and women’s ITF World Tennis Tour, the ITF will also postpone the ITF World Tennis Tour Juniors, the UNIQLO Wheelchair Tennis Tour, ITF Beach Tennis World Tour, and ITF Seniors Tour until 8 June 2020.

    The ITF, ATP and WTA firmly believe it is better for everyone in the tennis community if we work together. We are committed to working through these matters with players, tournaments and our national and regional associations in the weeks and months ahead. More than ever, the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic to professional tennis demand collaboration and unity in order for us to do what is right for our fans, players and tournaments.

    ITF President David Haggerty said, “In these challenging times, it is more important than ever for our sport to pull together to provide as much certainty as possible to all those affected by these postponements. We recognise the huge impact this will have, but ultimately the health and safety of players, officials and spectators has to be our primary concern. The ITF is committed to taking a responsible approach, working with all tennis stakeholders to enable players of all levels to resume playing as soon as it is safe to do so.”

    USTA Statement on US Open Schedule



    The USTA is continuing to plan for the 2020 US Open and is not at this time implementing any changes to the schedule.

    These are unprecedented times, though, and we are assessing all of our options, including the possibility of moving the tournament to a later date.

    At a time when the world is coming together, we recognize that such a decision should not be made unilaterally, and therefore the USTA would only do so in full consultation with the other Grand Slam tournaments, the WTA and ATP, the ITF and our partners, including the Laver Cup.

    BMW Open by FWU will not take place on the scheduled date

    Considerations as to whether the tournament can take place later in the year are being examined

    Munich. The BMW Open by FWU (April 25th - May 3rd) will not take place in 2020 for the time being. Today's decision by ATP to cancel all tournaments up to the French Open worldwide due to the corona virus is shared by the organizers of the traditional Munich tournament and perceived as correct. “The situation is very unfortunate for all tennis fans. Even if it is difficult, in the end it is a matter of overall responsibility towards the spectators and the players as well as all those involved in the tournament, ”says Michael Mronz for the organizer MMP Event GmbH. Everyone's health and safety is a top priority.

    Considerations as to whether the tournament can take place later in the year are being examined
    Within the ATP, there are considerations to reschedule any failed tournaments later in the year. The BMW Open by FWU have already expressed their interest in this at ATP. As soon as there is clarity, the previous BMW Open by FWU ticket buyers will be informed of how to proceed. The organizers ask the customers for a little patience, "but nobody will remain seated on the ticket they have already purchased," emphasizes Michael Mronz.

    ^ I agree - During this unprecedented circumstance, it will be good to have this specific thread for information and comments which relate the COVID-19 situation to tennis, rather than a merely general thread.
