The Wimbledon tennis tournament, scheduled for June 29 to July 12, has been canceled due to the Covid-19 epidemic, organizers said in a statement on Wednesday.

At the same time, ATP and WTA have announced that the men's and women's professional tennis circuits will remain suspended until July 13, the entire season of field tournaments. Last month, another Grand Slam tournament, Roland-Garros, scheduled for late May-early June, announced its postponement until the fall due to the pandemic.
