Still no tournaments in China

The ATP unveiled its calendar from mid-September to the end of the season on Thursday, and China is still not on the program this year.

The tennis players will finally be able to define their autumn program! It will indeed have been necessary to wait until July 21 to know the final end of the ATP calendar for the 2022 season, which had only been unveiled at first until mid-September. And as in 2020 and 2021, the circuit will not stop in China, due to the coronavirus pandemic which is still raging and which has forced the country to take drastic measures. The tournaments in Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu and Zhuhai will therefore not take place. After the US Open, the final of which will be held on September 11, a week will be devoted to the Davis Cup, then the week of September 19, players will have the choice between the ATP 250 tournaments in Metz indoors or San Diego in outdoors (or the Laver Cup in London for those who will be invited). The California tournament received a one-year license. The following week, in addition to Sofia, a regular on the calendar, two other ATP 250 tournaments will be held in Seoul (outdoors) and Tel Aviv (indoors). They, too, received a one-year license. After the ATP 500 tournaments in Tokyo and Nur-Sultan (which is rising in rank after being ranked ATP 250 for two years) the week of October 3, tennis players will be able to play an indoor ATP 250 tournament in Florence or Gijon the week of 10 (one year license). The following week, they will have the choice between three ATP 250 tournaments: the usual Antwerp and Stockholm (indoor), but also Naples (outdoor), which makes its appearance for a season. The Moscow tournament, which was to take place at the same time, is suspended due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

A classic end of the season

Finally, the season will end in a classic way: the ATP 500 in Basel and Vienna the week of October 24, the Rolex Paris Masters from October 31 to November 6, the NextGen Masters in Milan from November 8 to 12, the Turin Masters from November 13-20 and the Davis Cup finals from November 23-27. “As a global sport, we continue to manage the impacts of the pandemic. Event cancellations are a sad reality, and we wish the best of luck to affected tournament members and fans. At the same time, it is incredibly encouraging to see many major cities stepping up to host ATP Tour tennis this season. This shows the strong international interest in our product and validates the agile approach we have taken to respond to rapidly changing circumstances. We would like to thank all the stakeholders involved in this process and we look forward to an exciting second half of the season,” reacted ATP President Andrea Gaudenzi.
