Yes, Wimbledon in August, French open in September, US open in October appears the likely scenerio as of now.. One after other but no choice. That also if we get respite from Corona rill then.

Tell me about it! It is like these people suddenly woke up and saw how much of a struggle it is for anybody not in the top 100 or 200.

Sarah Borewell said there about Golf having it right, has some merit. Really, the problem is that the prize money has a gradation that is sort of similar to the ranking points. It makes logical sense to keep the same kind of dropping curve for both, otherwise it causes inconsistencies and ranking and earning. On the other hand, it does not have to be so steep. i.e., The winner doesn't have to get twice as much money and points as the runner. Level it out a bit more, and the prize money also will spread out a bit more (keeping the total prize money same at the events). But ATP has had pretty much the same drop-off curve for 40 years. It's a long discussion, and maybe I will run some analysis of the numbers at some future point when we are done with Covid-19....

There is news coming thru that they are now planning to hold US open in Indian wells instead of New York and in November. I do know if that will also be possible.

ITF to help players ranked between 500 and 700 -

International Tennis Federation to help lower-ranked players, 12 Indians stand to benefit

I dont why only those below 500 are selected. I think those between 200 and 500 also need some help using the same criterion.

Even 300-700 would've been better.

I think the amount is really small. So diluting it even further would make the amount meaningless.

Agree that those in the 200-500 level need support also but this pool was too small to help them....

So, US open is confirmed now on the same dates as earlier in the end August without spectators. This is a related article -

US Open 2020 to be held on scheduled dates without fans after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo gives go ahead

There will be no qualifying for the tournament. So, our players like Prajnesh and Sumit would not usually get in. But, lets see if the field is much weakened. French open is scheduled in 2 weeks time after US open and many European may prefer to stay put in Europe and prepare for French open.

And looks like the whole ATP tour will be back from 14th August with first the US hard court season and then clay court season.

There was a news that even WTA tour will re-start? The question is how many players would actually find it safe to travel, stay in hotels, use locker rooms etc.

Further, how will Indian players travel? We haven't allowed international travel yet!

I learnt there are regular flights run by Air India to various locations called evacuation flights and mostly going empty.

Federer's career is basically over, though. He is having arthroscopic surgery on his knee, and will be 40 next year. Surely impossible for him to come back yet again at that improbable age.

The hard court season will basically be played in New York City (the world's worst-afflicted city by Covid-19). The "Cincinnati" Masters will be played at Flushing Meadows, and then the US Open. This is insanity!

So Djokovic organized an Adriatic tour and followed no guidelines in terms of distancing and both Dimitrov and Coric are sick with coronavirus.

I find it hard to see tennis coming back this season with tennis players being idiots generally.
