Tennis Wimbledon Championship Canceled New Corona Infection Spread April 2 4:05
Due to the spread of the new coronavirus, the Wimbledon Championship, one of the four major tennis tournaments scheduled to be held in the United Kingdom between June and July, has been canceled.
This was decided in an emergency meeting held by the organizer of the day.
The Wimbledon Championship is the oldest of the four major tennis tournaments and began in 1877.
The 134th tournament was slated to begin on June 29th, but the organizers of the tournament consider that measures taken by the UK government to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus will continue for several months. And decided to cancel rather than postpone.
The Wimbledon Championships did not take place during the First World War from 1915 to 1918 and during the Second World War from 1940 to 1945.
Also, at the four major tennis tournaments, the French Open, which had been scheduled to begin in May, has been postponed to September.
