Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships (DDFTC) is expected to be moved to March, 2021.
The ATP announced late on Wednesday that they have carried out an update to the 2021 ATP Tour calendar, outlining a revised schedule for the first seven weeks of the season as tennis continues to navigate its return.
As per the initial calendar the two-week DDFTC was scheduled to kick off with the WTA tournament on February 14 and conclude with the ATP men’s final on February 27. The opening week of the 2021 season will kick off with the ATP 250 Delray Beach Open alongside a new single-year ATP 250 licence on hard court in Antalya, Turkey.
Weeks 8 to 13 details will be announced separately, while all subsequent sections of the 2021 calendar, beginning with the spring clay-court season from week 14, remain unchanged at this time as all tournaments are planned to take place as originally scheduled.
