A few days ago, Roland Garros officials decided to postpone the event for a week. The Paris Grand Slam tournament will start on May 30th. The French Open Championship will last until June 13. The WTA organization proposed a calendar for June to September.
For Polish tennis fans, the most important message is the confirmation of the Gdynia Championship. The event will be held at the Arka Gdynia Court from July 19th to 25th. At the same time, the competition will also be held in Palermo, Italy. In Poland and Italy, there may be no top players in Japan at that time.
The Olympic Games will start in Tokyo on July 23. The tennis match started one day later on July 24. From June 14th, the 64 highest ranked players will compete in the Japanese capital. The most likely one is Iga Świątek (currently ranked 16th). This means that the 19-year-old boy from Raszyn will not perform in Gdynia this year. For a long time, she assured her that the beginning of the Olympic Games was of great significance to her. Her father, TomaszSeoulwiątek, rowed at the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
The WTA 250 Championship in Gdynia will take at least five years. Therefore, Świątek is likely to appear in front of Polish audiences in the next few years. The person in charge of the competition is Marcin Matkowski, organized by Tennis Consulting, led by Tomasz Świątek. I am very happy that the great women’s tennis game is back in Poland after five years. The WTA Championship was last held in Katowice in 2016.
-This year will be a difficult year, but I wholeheartedly support this initiative. Iga Świątek said at a recent press conference that this is a great project that can encourage children to go to court and bring us closer to tennis.
-Our game will be held on a very good date. This year alone, it will be more difficult due to the Olympic Games. In the next few years, this will be an ideal period-mid-summer vacation. We hope that this epidemic will be alleviated and people can go on vacation and watch the best tennis at the same time-Tomasz Świątek admitted in an interview with Sport.pl.
After Roland Garros won, his daughter’s words were predicted. -In the long run, I hope the FedEx Cup is not the only game in Poland. Maybe my victory in Paris will have a positive impact on the fact that there will be a WTA tournament one day? -Iga Świątek wants to know. The game in Gdynia has been included in the WTA calendar and replaced the game in Washington (Citi Open).
After Roland Garros (Roland Garros), a short season will begin on the grass court (including the return to the Berlin Championship) and will end with the Grand Slam Wimbledon (June 28 to July 11). In addition to Gdynia and Palermo, tennis players will be able to choose in July, including Bastad, Prague and Budapest.
The hard courts will start in August after the Tokyo Olympics. Players will perform, including in Montreal and Cincinnati. The US Open will be held from August 30th to September 13th. In the next few months, the WTA will release a calendar for the end of the season.
