The ATP has cancelled all tournaments on the men’s ATP Tour and ATP Challenger Tour until 27 April, due to growing concerns about the impact of the coronavirus outbreak. ATP chairman Andrea Gaudenzi says the decision was not an easy one, but it believed it was in the best interest of players, staff and the broader tennis community. The ATP says the impact of the cancellation of matches on world rankings will be considered carefully, while the Women’s Tennis Association has not yet announced its stance on upcoming tournaments.
