MADRID - The Baltic Open tennis tournament in Jurmala will not take place this year, the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) announced on Friday.

The current ATP and WTA season was initially suspended until June 7 and later until July 13.

"Following the announcement of the WTA Tour suspension through July 12, the WTA events in Bastad, Lausanne, Bucharest, and Jurmala scheduled for July will not be held, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic," said a WTA spokesperson.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported in April that the tennis season would resume no sooner than on August 3.

The Baltic Open tennis tournament in Jurmala was scheduled to begin on July 20.
