ATP releases calendar for the first half of the 2022 season
The ATP has officially released the calendar for the first half of the 2022 season and there have been some changes to the usual structure.
The ATP has announced the calendar for the first half of the 2022 ATP Tour season, kicking off in January with the third edition of the ATP Cup in Sydney, Australia, through to the end of The Championships, Wimbledon in July. Elsewhere, the Qatar Open in Doha, traditionally held in Week 1, will be played in Week 7 in 2022, immediately followed by the Dubai Tennis Championships. As previously announced, the ASB Classic in Auckland (ATP 250) will not be held in 2022 due to complications related to COVID-19.
ATP Chairman Andrea Guadenzi said:
"We’re delighted to announce the calendar and give our fans visibility for the first half of the 2022 ATP Tour season. Tennis has had to adapt to fluid circumstances since the start of the pandemic and, while we continue to navigate its challenges, today’s announcement is a positive milestone in our continued return. We cannot wait to kick off another exciting season and welcome back to the calendar those events that were unfortunately unable to stage last year. I would like to credit the hard work of our players and tournaments that has allowed us to reach this point.”
