As a result of the corona crisis, the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) has decided to cancel all ATP tournaments scheduled until 31 July. The Swiss Open Gstaad 2020 is also affected by this decision.
The tournament, which was scheduled to take place from 18 to 26 July, has been cancelled. The Federal Council had already decided on 29 April to ban events with more than 1,000 people until the end of August.
The tournament management of the Swiss Open Gstaad regrets that Swiss tennis fans will have to do without the ATP stars in Gstaad this summer. "At the same time we fully understand the decisions of the ATP as well as the Federal Council. The health of the population, the spectators, the players and all those involved in the tournament has top priority", the press release states.
Tickets retain their validity
The next Swiss Open Gstaad is planned for the summer 2021. Tickets already purchased for the 2020 event will remain valid, as the tournament management writes.
"We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors and partners for their support during this extraordinarily difficult time. At the same time, we express our solidarity and sympathy for the athletes who are unable to continue their work due to the corona crisis as well as for all people worldwide who are affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and for all the relatives of the victims."
