The suspension of the professional tennis tours because of coronavirus has been extended to 7 June, ruling out the entire clay-court season.

The ATP and WTA Tours were already off until 27 April and 2 May respectively.

The extension covers joint tournaments in Madrid and Rome, plus women’s events in Strasbourg and Rabat and men’s events in Munich, Estoril, Geneva and Lyon.

All men’s and women’s rankings have been frozen until further notice.

“All decisions related to the impact of the coronavirus require appropriate consultation and review with the stakeholders in the game, a view that is shared by ATP, WTA, International Tennis Federation, All England Lawn Tennis Club, Tennis Australia, and United States Tennis Association.”

Tournaments beginning on 8 June onwards are planning to go ahead as scheduled. Nottingham is due to host a WTA event that week, with tournaments at Queen’s on 15 June and Eastbourne on 20 June.

Wimbledon is scheduled to take place from 29 June until 12 July.
