Tournament's co-director praises city where novel coronavirus originated for recovery

This file photo taken on September 28, 2019 shows Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus serving against Alison Riske of the U.S. during their women's singles final match at the Wuhan Open tennis tournament in Wuhan, China.When the WTA announced a provisional list of tournaments for the remainder of a season that will be forever defined by the COVID-19 outbreak last week, one name above all stood out – the Wuhan Open.

After a cluster of new cases of the virus in May sparked fears of a second spike, Wuhan tested 9.9 million people out of a population of 11 million.“I don’t think we hear much about that. Not as much as the fact that COVID-19 started in Wuhan. And they have almost everything back to normal, whether it’s transport or restaurants or cinemas, people going back to work in the offices or their industries.

The current top three in the rankings – Ash Barty, Simona Halep and Karolina Pliskova – were in the 2019 field of the event.
