Member of the Board of the Russian WTA players Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova expressed the view that suspended in March due to pandemic coronavirus tennis season will continue. The competition should resume on July 31.
“I’m not sure that the tennis season will continue. When you look at the schedule that catches the eye of the US Open, but its courts is now a temporary hospital. Besides, I’m not sure we will have enough time to prepare for the tournament. Would love to play again tennis, but you have to be realistic. In any case, if the borders still are closed, the tennis season resume will not work.
Personally, I would be a lot easier to leave Russia and to return to France, to the Academy Muratoglu. Usually where I spend most of the time, living in his house near Monaco. In France unable to train fully. Hope to return as soon as possible.
Even if the season resumes, will need to comply with strict rules. We have discussed this in the Council of the WTA. For example, to limit the number of people accompanying the player. You may have to start without the audience”, — quotes the words Pavlyuchenkova Tennis Majors.
