ATP Schedule: Roland Garros delay sees s-Hertogenbosch cancelled but Belgrade benefiting

The Roland Garros delay has claimed its first casualty on the ATP schedule, with the ‘s-Hertogenbosch ATP2050 event cancelled.

The event was due to take place from June 7, which was originally the week after Roland Garros.

However, the ATP issued a calendar update on Friday confirming that ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Libema Cup, will now not take place in 2021.

The other grass court event due for that week, Stuttgart, will still go ahead as planned.

The French Open opted to delay the start of the tournament by a week due to a third wave of COVID-19 currently hitting the country.

With a lockdown in place there would have been no possibility for fans to attend, so organisers opted for a delay instead.

That has shorted the grass season, leaving just two weeks between the end of the French Open and the start of Wimbledon, but also essentially extended the clay season by a week.

There have, therefore, been two additions to the ATP calendar for the week before Roland Garros (w/c 22 May).

Updated ATP schedule

Belgrade, which only returned to the schedule this year, will now host an additional ATP250 event that week, with the Novak Centre again providing the facilities.

The Emilia-Romagna Open, another ATP 250, is now also scheduled for that week and will be held in Parma, Italy.
