Tennis in the time of coronavirus: Mutua Madrid Open will be played online!

As the COVID-19 pandemic has forced tennis officials to cancel all events at least until July 13th, the Mutua Madrid Open, originally scheduled to run from 2nd May to 9th May, has found a way to go ahead with the tournament — online!

The Premier Mandatory event, taking place in Spain, one of the countries most affected by the coronavirus outbreak, has announced that its 2020 edition will be played in a virtual environment, as players will participate from their own homes in the Manolo Santana Stadium replica recreated in exquisite detail in the Tennis World Tour videogame.
