MONTREAL, April 11, 2020 (Tennis Canada Press Release)
Following the measures imposed by the Quebec Government prohibiting the holding of events until August 31, 2020, Tennis Canada is currently evaluating the consequences of this announcement by discussing the various options with the WTA regarding the postponement of the Rogers Cup presented by National Bank event in Montreal, which was scheduled to take place from August 7 to 16, 2020.
