The Hong Kong Tennis Open has been postponed because of the ongoing protests in the city. The tournament was initially scheduled to start on October 5.
According to the organisers, there will be a better place to have a “smooth running tournament…[at a] later time”.
For the past several months, Honk Kong has been gripped by the protests as the residents demand democratic reforms.
The Hong Kong Tennis Open was due to take place on October 5-13.
“In light of the present situation, the event will no longer take place,” the Hong Kong Tennis Association and the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) said in a statement.
