The new season kicks off with the ATP Cup, organized in partnership with Tennis Australia. The 2022 edition will feature a 16-team field and take place at two venues in Sydney – Ken Rosewall Arena and Qudos Bank Arena – both at Sydney Olympic Park. As part of a reconfigured opening section of the season, Week 1 will also feature two ATP 250 parallel events at the ATP Cup, Adelaide International and Melbourne Park. Week 2 will feature two ATP 250s, including a second event at Adelaide International and the Sydney Tennis Classic, a new one-off event, alongside qualifying for the Australian Open in Melbourne.
Elsewhere, the Qatar ExxonMobil Open in Doha, traditionally held in week 1, will be played in week 7 in 2022, immediately followed by the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. As previously announced, the ASB Classic in Auckland (ATP 250) will not take place in 2022 due to complications from COVID-19.
All other events via Wimbledon are to take place during their usual week in the calendar, with details of the remaining section of the calendar to be communicated in due course.
Andrea Gaudenzi, ATP President, said: “We are delighted to announce the schedule and give our fans visibility for the first half of the 2022 TUSEN season. Tennis has had to adapt to fluid circumstances since the start of the pandemic and, as we continue to meet its challenges, today’s announcement is a positive step in our continued return. We can’t wait to kick off another exciting season and welcome back on the calendar these events which unfortunately could not happen last year. I want to thank the hard work of our players and our tournaments that have made it possible for us to reach this point.
