With three months to go until the ATP Finals in London on Friday the ATP made a decision to that they will follow current UK Government Guidelines and closed door sport will remain without fans.
The ATP and their ticket partner AXScontacted all fans on Friday afternoon to inform them that all tickets will be refunded. Over 240,000 fans attended the O2 last year and what is it’s last year a sellout was expected with the ATP now refunding over £20,000,000 worth of tickets bought.
It is a sad situation and just a realisation and reminder to many this is far from over. I was meant to be going to the ATP Finals this year for the semi-finals and finals in its last year in London before it moves to Turin next year and am gutted not to be going but it is the right decision.
As well as refunding fans the ATP have said that if the situation improves and the UK government change their current stance on indoor events tickets will go back on sale in a socially distanced manor and I imagine each seating will be around a third of normal capacity.
At the same time of the announcement the ATP announced three singles players and one doubles team have already qualified.
Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal & Dominic Thiem have qualified based on their ranking points from last year and any extra from this year. Also qualified in the doubles is Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram
