The ITF has announced the postponement of both the Fed Cup by BNP Paribas Finals 2020 and Fed Cup Play-offs due to the ongoing coronavirus concerns. The ITF Board made the decision after careful consideration and close discussion with the Local Organizing Committee in light of the announcement by the Hungarian government on Wednesday regarding indoor events, reports Xinhua news agency. Originally scheduled to take place from April 14 to 19 at the Laszlo Papp Sport Arena in Budapest, the Fed Cup Finals is an Olympic Qualification event.

"The ITF COVID-19 Advisory Group will continue to monitor the situation closely and further decisions will be based on the facts, official data and expert advice," said ITF president David Haggerty.
