Wimbledon weighs 2021 behind closed doors

The organization of the London Grand Slam issued a statement with the three possibilities to hold the tournament in 2021. This year it was not played due to the coronavirus pandemic.


The Wimbledon tournament is already considering the options to celebrate the 2021 edition, after canceling the 2020 edition due to covid-19, and raises three scenarios: a normal championship, with reduced capacity or closed doors.

These three possibilities will depend on the British Government's health recommendations as the tournament approaches, with dates for July 2021.

Wimbledon is the only one of the four Grand Slam that has not been played in 2020, while Australia was held normally in January, the US Open was played in a bubble without an audience and Roland Garros admitted 1,000 people per day.

"Our priority is the health and safety of all our partners, our fans and players," the Wimbledon organizers said in a statement.

This year's was the first edition of Wimbledon suspended since World War II.
