Wimbledon will not be held for the first time after World War II

The next Grand Slam of the year, Wimbledon, is likely to be affected after the French Open 2020 due to coronavirus worldwide. According to German Tennis Federation (DTB) vice-president Dirk Horrdorf, Wimbledon 2020 is set to be cancelled with officials in an announcement on Wednesday.

Tournament organizer All England Club (AELTC) has been asked to hold an emergency meeting on Wednesday, after which the fate of the 2020 Wimbledon tournament will be decided which is scheduled to begin on 29 June.
The necessary decisions have already been made and the Wimbledon club will decide to cancel this coming Wednesday. It does not have any message.

“It is entirely possible to imagine that we currently have an international tennis tournament with travel restrictions where thousands of people from all over the world will travel and it is unbelievable.” If the tournament is cancelled, it will be the first time since World War II that the Grand Slam tournament program will be cancelled.
