WTA officials in December announced the first seven weeks of the 2021 calendar. Tuesday's update represents the next 20 weeks of the schedule. The WTA said the rest of the schedule will be announced "in due course."
The 2021 French Open is scheduled to start on May 23 at Roland Garros in Paris. Wimbledon 2021, which was canceled last year due to COVID-19, would start June 28 at the All England Tennis and Croquet Club in London.
The dates for those two Grand Slams are typical for an annual WTA season calendar prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Tuesday's update includes the dates for more than two dozen WTA tournaments.
"The current schedule reflects a traditional WTA Tour calendar for the majority of the season past mid-March, albeit with a few changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic," the WTA said in a news release.
The 2021 WTA schedule started Monday with the Abu Dhabi Open. Australian Open qualifying begins Sunday before the first Grand Slam of the year starts Feb. 8.
The BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, Calif., is one of the tournaments that will not be played on its typical March date due to COVID-19. The ATP said "alternatives are being assessed" to play that tournament later in the season.
The ATP Tour on Dec. 29 announced its men's tennis schedule for the first quarter of 2021. ATP officials said that all tournaments after the BNP Paribas Open are planned take place as originally scheduled before the coronavirus pandemic.
