HAMBURG, March 18, 2020
The coronavirus pandemic has not only affected public life in the whole world to an unprecedented extent, but has also shut down the global tennis circuit. As the tennis world grapples with the domino effect of COVID-19, it is not yet foreseeable when regular tournaments and matches will be possible again.
Nevertheless, organizers of the Hamburg European Open announced on Wednesday that they are continuing to work intensively on the preparations for this year’s edition of the Rothenbaum tournament. The ATP 500 clay-court event is scheduled to take place on July 11 to 19. Ticket sales continue unchanged.
Stay safe and stay at home in these trying times. There will be light at the end of the tunnel ☀️#hamburgopen 🟡⚫️ #hamburgeuropeanopen #atphamburg #hamburg #hamburgactivecity #deutschertennisbund pic.twitter.com/cgZweQHLEn
