Tennis: Wimbledon postponed over coronavirus, moved to 2021

The 134th edition of the Wimbledon, which was scheduled to start on June 29, 2020, has been postponed until 2021 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

It is the first time the event has been cancelled since World War II.

The Championships announced the development Wednesday, citing public health concerns over the coronavirus, which is now nearing a million cases worldwide.

The Championships will instead be played from June 28, 2021 to July 11, 2021.

On its official Twitter account, the Wimbledon also took into consideration the safety of everyone involved in the prestigious tennis event, including staff workers, volunteers, players, and the general public.

Fans who have already purchased tickets may ask for a refund or watch next year for the same match days and seats.
