The U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship in Houston has been scrapped for the second year in a row because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The cancellation is part of a series of changes to the men's tennis calendar announced by the ATP on Wednesday.

The Houston tournament was supposed to be played April 3-11.

It was among the dozens of professional tennis events scrapped in 2020 while the tours were on hiatus for several months.

Until then, the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship had been held every year since 1929.
