The ATP has suspended all men’s professional tennis tournaments for six weeks because of the coronavirus outbreak, with the ITF announcing a similar measure Thursday.

No ATP Tour or ATP Challenger Tour events will take place through the week of April 20.

The tournament at Indian Wells, California, scheduled to begin main-draw play Wednesday, already had been called off.

The affected events are the Miami Open; the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championships in Houston; the Grand Prix Hassan II in Marrakech, Morocco; the Monte Carlo Masters; the Barcelona Open; and the Hungarian Open.

The next Grand Slam tournament, the French Open, is still scheduled to be held in Paris beginning May 24.
