Tennis warmup event postponed

31 May, 2014

The International Tennis Foundation announces that the Olympic tennis test event is postponed four months from August to December 2015. Delays in construction are partly to blame. EVP Juan Margets says:

We wanted August, one year before the Rio Olympics, so we will have the same weather conditions. That wasn’t possible, and they came back to us with one or two months’ delay. Then we were the ones to suggest December, because we have the U.S. Open in September and also Davis Cup and Fed Cup after that.
