The coronavirus is also affecting the tennis world as more and more regulations are in place to protect players from possible contact with the virus. This is also evidenced by the forthcoming BNB Paribas Open, which will take place from 9/3/2020 to 22/3/2020 in California.
Some of the precautions are quite meticulous as they include strict hygiene rules such as the hand cover with gloves of the ball-boys and girls as well as the installation of 250 stations for hand disinfection.
Precautions must also be taken in the interaction between players and the public which should be reduced in order to protect both sides. On the other hand, those of the spectators who keep their reservations can cancel their tickets and demand a full refund.
A decision will be made on Monday by the international organizations of the ATP and the WTA if the future tournaments will be affected by the coronavirus.
