There are difficult times worldwide surrounding the COVID-19 virus, and consequently not only Indian Wells, but also the Miami Open and the WTA tournament in Charleston have been cancelled for the safety and wellbeing of all fans, staff, ball-kids and players.
Also the Fed Cup final tournament in Budapest in April, where Julia would have represented Germany, has been postponed to an unknown later date. How exactly the European clay court season will start is still uncertain at the moment.
Jule left Indian Wells when the news of the tournaments cancellation was announced and travelled straight back home to Germany. After the fast and stressful turnaround she first took a few days off but will be continuing to train 100% to be best prepared, for when the season resumes.
Stay safe and healthy everyone!
Very good news for German fans
The schedule in the summer of 2020: Jule will play two WTA tournaments on grass in Germany.
She begins with the Grass Court Championships in Berlin from 13 – 20 of June followed by the Bad Homburg Open (21 – 27 of June), as preparation for Wimbledon 2020. “It's something special to play two tournaments on grass in Germany. Wonderful for my fans and of course, for me also a nice moment”, Jule said after she committed to play.
