A decision on whether or not to hold this year’s Wimbledon will be made this week – and many are expecting the iconic tournament to be cancelled.
While an official announcement won’t be made until Wednesday, a German tennis official says the “necessary decisions have already been made” and that the tournament, set to begin June 29th, will be cancelled.
It will be the first time Wimbledon has been cancelled since World War II.
Novak Djokavic and Simona Halep were set to defend their 2019 Wimbledon Championships.
Is cancelling Wimbledon the right decision even though it’s not until late June? Will the outbreak extend into fall sports like football?
