US Open organisers said Tuesday the cancellation of next month’s tournament in Washington DC “in no way impacts” the behind-closed-doors Grand Slam scheduled for the end of August.The Citi Open tournament was due to mark the resumption of the men’s tennis season after the coronavirus lockdown but has been called off because of “continued uncertainties” amid the pandemic.

We look forward to the Citi Open returning as one of our signature American events in 2021.”Earlier this month, Wimbledon agreed to award £10 million ($12.7 million) in prize money to the 620 players who would have taken part in the tournament had it not been cancelled for the first time since World War II.
