The women’s Rogers Cup tournament in Montreal in August has been postponed until 2021 due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) announced this on Saturday.
The WTA said it postponed the tournament as a result of the measures imposed by the Quebec government.
All events are under ban until Aug. 31, 2020.
“The WTA reiterates that health and safety will always be the top priority.
‘We understand this was a difficult decision and we look forward to being back in Montreal in 2021.
“As it currently stands, the WTA Tour is suspended through July 12.
“We will continue to work with our tournament partners in evaluating when we will be able to get back on the court.
“We do not foresee any further decisions until next month,” the WTA said in a statement.
The men’s side of the Rogers Cup is scheduled for Toronto on the same dates.
