Ténis feminino vai retomar na Sicília, Itália

By Phil Bainbridge

August 3, 2020 - November 23, 2020 - A WTA Tour recomeça no Open Feminino de Palermo, na Sicília – o primeiro de 20 torneios para concluir a época, incluindo dois Grand Slams e duas provas Premier Mandatory em Madrid e Pequim.

The Australian Open in January, won by rising U.S. star Sofia Kenin, is the only Grand Slam to have taken place in 2020. Following the cancellation of the entire grass court season, including Wimbledon, the aim is now to complete two further Grand Slam showpieces at the U.S. Open in New York, and the rescheduled Roland Garros on the Paris clay.

Revised calendar 2020:
Aug 03 Ladies Open, Palermo (International)
Aug 21 Western and Southern Open, New York (Premier 5, relocated from Cincinnati)
Aug 31 U.S. Open, New York (Grand Slam)
Sep 07 BNP Paribas Tennis Championship, Istanbul (International)
Sep 14 Mutua Madrid Open, Madrid (Premier Mandatory)
Sep 21 Internazionali BNL d’Italia, Rome (Premier 5)
Sep 21 Internazionaux de Strasbourg, Strasbourg (International)
Sep 27 Roland Garros, Paris (Grand Slam)
Oct 05 Korea Open, Seoul (International)
Oct 12 China Open, Beijing (Premier Mandatory)
Oct 19 Wuhan Open, Wuhan (Premier 5)
Oct 19 Jiangxi Open, Nanchang (International)
Oct 26 Zhengzhou Open, Zhengzhou (Premier)

Nov 02 Toray Pan Pacific Open, Tokyo (Premier)
Nov 09 Shiseido WTA Finals, Shenzhen
Nov 16 WTA Elite Trophy, Zhuhai
Nov 23 Guangzhou Open, Ghangzhou (International)

Further tournaments to be confirmed.

Only the top eight players who collect the most ranking points over the calendar year will compete in the season-ending Shiseido WTA Finals, to be played in Shenzhen, China.

Points that contribute to the Race to Shenzhen ranking are accumulated in the Grand Slams, and WTA Tour (Premier Mandatory, Premier 5, Premier, and International series events).

Ranking points are awarded for each event -- ranging from 2,000 for the winner of a Grand Slam tournament to 280 for the winner of a International series event.
