In just a matter of days, ATP will be returning in August after being put at a halt by the pandemic. However, his season’s final will be in November only, which is extremely important for ATP, both tournament as well as financial wise.
And as usual, it will be held in the same O2 Arena in London. Fans will only be allowed if the situation calms by then. However, the organizers fear that if the situation demands the tournament will go ahead behind doors.
But this isn’t the concern, the main difficulty will arise during the ATP finals, as there are different rules in different places, like players coming from the US will first be quarantined for a period of 14 days which will be compulsory.
An ATP spokesperson told Daily Mail that they are considering to organise the event will less fans.
“Our intentions remain 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,” said the spokesperson.
He added, “We are working on the final section of the provisional 2020 calendar. And expect a further update by the end of July.”
He further mentioned, “With a large global TV audience and a host of sponsors the calculations is that the event would still be viable behind closed doors. For what would be one last time in London before it moves to Turin next year.”
