The ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament will be held from 1 to 7 March next year. The tournament in Rotterdam had to look for a new date due to the shifts on the ATP calendar.
Initially, the ABN AMRO tournament was scheduled for February 8-14, but due to the postponement of the Australian Open that was no longer an option. The Grand Slam tournament was postponed by three weeks due to the corona measures and associated quarantine obligations and now starts on February 8.
Just under two weeks after the news about the Australian Open, the ATP presented a new calendar on Tuesday. The ABN AMRO tournament is now being held in the first week of March, just like the Buenos Aires clay tournament. The big Masters tournament of Indian Wells, which normally takes place in March, has no new place yet.
Due to the uncertainty about the date of the event in Ahoy, the field of participants is still far from complete. Tournament director Richard Krajicek has so far only managed to get Daniil Medvedev (ATP-4) and Jannik Sinner (ATP-37).
The ABN AMRO tournament was won by Gaël Monfils last year. The Frenchman dealt with the Canadian top talent Félix Auger-Aliassime (6-2 and 6-4) in the final.
