EThe Wimbledon tournament is already considering the options to celebrate the 2021 edition, after canceling the 2020 edition for COVID.19, and raises three scenarios: a normal championship, with reduced capacity or closed doors. These three possibilities will depend on the recommendations of the British Government on health when the tournament approaches, with dates for July 2021.
Wimbledon is the only one of the four Grand Slam that has not been played in 2020, while Australia was held normally in January, the US Open was played in a bubble without an audience and Roland Garros admitted 1,000 people per day.
“Our priority is the health and safety of all our partners, our fans and players,” the Wimbledon organizers said in a statement.
The tournament was thus canceled for the eleventh time in history and the first time that was not caused by the First or Second World War. Nothing like it has been seen since 1945.
