ATP Tour officials are still “working on the final section of the provisional 2020 calendar”, but one tournament is set to remain in place and that’s the ATP Finals at London’s O2 Arena.

Tennis was thrown into chaos due to the coronavirus pandemic with the sport forced to go on a five-month hiatus, leading to the cancellation of Wimbledon for the first time since World War II.

Several other tournaments were also scrapped while a few other events, including the French Open, were rescheduled under a revised calendar up until early October.

However, the final few weeks of the season is yet to be finalised, but organisers are determined that the season-ending ATP Finals, currently set to start on November 16 at the O2 Arena, will stay on the calendar even if they have to play without fans.

“Our intention remains for the season to finish with the Nitto ATP Finals in London, including the potential scenario of the event being held with reduced or no fans on-site in line with UK Government guidelines,” an ATP spokesperson told Sportsmail.

“We are working on the final section of the provisional 2020 calendar and expect a further update by the end of July.”

This year’s Finals will be the last one staged in London as the event will move to Turin, Italy, in 2021.
