When Novak Djokovic said that his aim was to end the season undefeated he said that he was serious about that. Well with the tennis halted by the Coronavirus pandemic and a positive 18-0 win-loss record, Nole may have a shot at that. Both the ATP and the WTA stopped the tour at least until the 7th of June. The Roland Garros was postponed to the 20th of September and the Olympics moved to 2021.
When tennis will be back?
Many think that the 7th of June is a bit too early. However, there are hopes to see the sport back by the end of June (29th) when Wimbledon is scheduled. However, things are completely unpredictable and it is possible that some countries will still be in lockdown by the end of June. The good news for the Championships is that the postponement of the Olympics opened a good window of opportunities in terms of scheduling. The Games were supposed to commence the 24th of July and therefore Wimbledon may take that slot if needed.
Why it’s important to have the sport back
Sport, in general, is very important for people as a mean of distraction. Therefore, especially during this tough moment, it would be extremely beneficial to have the likes of soccer and tennis back as soon as possible thus safeguarding the health of the players and fans.
