New big boss of ATP, the former Italian player Andrea Gaudenzi could believe himself cursed, the tennis season being completely stopped because of the coronavirus. But in an interview with Italian media, the interested party is still optimistic.
Andrea Gaudenzi, the new boss of ATP, believes in better days. In an interview with his compatriots, the Italian does not hide anything from his plans. “I have spoken with all the players of the “Council” and all agree with the idea of being able to play the most important tournaments this yearhe said. Ideally, we hope to be able to count on two Masters 1000 contested on clay before or after Roland-Garros. “
Wishing to be able to contest the Masters in mid-November, Gaudenzi has specific ideas. “We are working on the hypothesis of four weeks on clay after the US Open. If we play this summer in the United States, then on earth and finally in Asia before concluding in London, we would have saved a large part of the season. For now, we expect a recovery just after the dates originally scheduled for Wimbledon. “
While nobody knows when tennis can resume, Gaudenzi wants to move forward. “It will be more difficult for tennis than for other sports, but we are evaluating all possible formats“, he concludes.
