The Madrid Open, a joint men’s and women’s tennis tournament, has been canceled.

Organizers say the tournament will not take place at its rescheduled slot in September “following strong” recommendations made by local authorities “in view of the current situation caused by COVID-19.”

The event was originally scheduled to be played in May.
