Wimbledon out due to Corona: will tennis be played in 2020?

After Wimbledon’s cancellation, doubts grow as to whether tennis can be played again in 2020. Angelique Kerber, Roger Federer and Co. are facing unclear weeks. A memory also tarnishes the mood.

VA few days ago, Roger Federer reported on the social networks with a small video that showed him in the thick snow with a hat and down vest while changing the ball with a tennis wall. He hit the balls in front of his body, behind and through his open legs, and of course it looked like it was a little thing. On the video, he wrote that he wanted to make sure he hadn’t forgotten the tricks; a rather ironic little comment, because the danger did not exist in spite of his break in dangerous times. In February Federer had an arthroscopy in his knee and his return to tennis was planned for the Noventi Open in Halle / Westphalia in mid-June. First steps on the beloved lawn, the next should follow over on the island in Wimbledon.

When Federer released the video with blowing snow, he probably had more than a clue that nothing was going to happen in the lawn season. Now everyone knows, officially. He was “devastated”, said the Swiss immediately after the cancellation of the All England Championships 2020 on Wednesday, but added that he could not wait to be back in Wimbledon next year.
