As if 2020 was not already a disastrous year for tennis, in time for Christmas we are treated with another piece of horrible news: the WTA/ATP Live Score App is being discontinued across all mobile and desktop platforms.
The shutdown is a result of some changes made to the data feed, so the app is no longer able to support the technical requirements of both the ATP and WTA. Men’s tennis offers a solution, as they will have the official ATP app for mobile users, while women’s tennis lives scores we’ll be available only on desktop, on the official WTA website, http://wtatennis.com.
ATP and WTA state that they remain committed to exploring opportunities for alignment across digital products.
It will now be much less convenient for tennis fans and players to follow match results. I hope that the WTA will come up with a solution soon.
Here’s how players Mandy Minella and Madison Keys commented on the situation:
