LONDON (AP) — The finals of the Billie Jean King Cup, formerly the Fed Cup, were postponed for a second time on Thursday.
The International Tennis Federation said the 12-nation tournament cannot take place as scheduled as an indoor event from April 13-18 in Budapest, Hungary.
Citing “continued uncertainty and the challenges due to the COVID-19 virus, locally and internationally,” the ITF said it would be rescheduled later in the year. A venue was not confirmed.
The tournament was originally scheduled in April 2020, then postponed when the pandemic was declared.
