The Wimbledon tournament remains wary of the lifting of restrictions in the United Kingdom that would allow the prestigious and legendary tennis championship to be played normally in June. According to the British Government's roadmap, there may be up to 10,000 people in football stadiums from May 17, while normality would return, not before June 21, a week before the third Grand Slam of the year

Despite this, Wimbledon continues to explore options to play the tournament in all possible scenarios. "We are delighted to hear today's announcements and look forward to continuing to work with the Government and other sports with the ambition to bring spectators back to our events in the summer," Wimbledon said in a statement.

"We continue to work to develop the tournament in the different scenarios, with full capacity, reduced or closed doors, so that we can act quickly and be flexible depending on how the situation changes." "Although the vaccination process is very hopeful, we believe that caution must be exercised at this time," he added.

At this time, almost 18 million people have received the first dose of the vaccine in the UK. Wimbledon was the only Grand Slam that had to be suspended last season, in which it was its first cancellation since World War II.
