ATP men’s tennis rankings to return to pre-pandemic system

LONDON (AP) — The ATP men’s tennis tour will return to its pre-pandemic, 52-week ranking system later this month after a year using a special setup that accounted for tournaments canceled because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The tour announced Wednesday that the change back to its usual rolling system will come on Aug. 23, taking into account results from the Western & Southern Open, which ends the day before.

The U.S. Open, the year’s last Grand Slam tournament, starts Aug. 30.
