Barbara Rittner has not yet given up the bett1 Open 2020 in Berlin
The bett1open in Berlin are also due to the cancellation of the Grand Slam tournament in Wimbledon (June 29 - July 12) due to the current development of the corona pandemic and the resultant cancellation of the turf events scheduled earlier in June by the WTA and ATP affected.

As a result of these decisions, the tennis tournament on the LTTC “Rot-Weiß” eV facility cannot take place from June 13th to 21st, 2020 as planned. The organizers are now examining all possibilities to carry out the bett1open later this year.
“The WTA and its members did not take this decision lightly. However, we remain vigilant in protecting the health and safety of our players, employees and fans, ”said Steve Simon, WTA CEO. "Even though we are disappointed with the further postponement of the season, it remains a top priority to support and work together in this unprecedented time to prepare for the return to our sport," added Simon.
“In the current situation, the only thing that is crucial is to stop the spread of the corona pandemic as quickly as possible. The health of all is paramount. Of course, this is just as valid on the tennis tour as it is in everyday life. Postponing the bett1open to a later date in 2020 is an option for us - but only if the situation relaxes so much that the WTA tour can be played again without hesitation, ”explains tournament director Barbara Rittner.
