The fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continues.

The BGL BNP Paribas Open in Luxembourg, scheduled to be played Oct. 19-25, has been forced to cancel.

The tournament said that new health and safety restrictions put in place by the WTA have made it impossible to hold the tournament in 2020.

“The recommendations concerning the new rules by the WTA for the 2020 edition do not allow us to organize this year's tournament with a clear conscience and in alignment with your expectations,” the tournament wrote on its website and on social media. “The regulations regarding safety and hygiene make it impossible for us to hold an event that would adhere to these conditions. We are therefore forced to postpone the 25th anniversary edition of the WTA tournament in Kockelscheuer until the autumn of 2021."

Jelena Ostapenko was the champion in 2020. She defeated Julia Goerges in the final.
