The play-off of the British Billie Jean King Cup against Mexico was postponed from February to April.

It was supposed to be played on February 5th and 6th, but the postponement of the Australian Open from mid-January to February 8th means that these dates are no longer feasible.

The WTA has yet to create a calendar for the upcoming season, but the ATP released their first tournaments on Thursday morning to confirm that the first Grand Slam of the year has been postponed by three weeks.
