Digital Desk, Sydney. Tennis Australia on Thursday announced its Summer of Tennis, in which competitions will be held in several states as part of the Australian Open 2022. A total of 17 events will be held in the states of New South Wales (NSW), South Australia and Victoria, before the tournament begins on 17 January. At the same time, tournaments have been confirmed to be held in Sydney from January 1 to 9.
ATP President Andrea Gaudenzi said: “There is no better place to start the season than in Australia and we look forward to seeing the fans outside in January.” Other major events include the Victorian Wheelchair from 8 to 12 January and the Adelaide International Women’s Program starting 2 January.
Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tilly said the line-up was designed to create opportunities for multiple competitions for the world’s best players. “It’s incredibly important to have the world’s best players compete across the country, inspire the next generation of players and drive the growing interest and enthusiasm in our sport,” he said.
Tilly said that the corona pandemic has posed a great challenge to many events, which is why we have waited a long time to select as many venues as possible for players and fans and secure according to the circumstances.
The qualifying rounds for the Australian Open will run from January 10-14 and the main event from January 17-30. Let us tell you that Tennis Australia had earlier announced that players without the Kovid-19 vaccination would not be allowed to participate in the 2022 Australian Open.
