A great tradition will disappear Wimbledon. The Grand Slam on the Grass is undoubtedly the tournament that best represents the tradition. Between the dress codes, strict protocols, the legendary venue, and mid-Sunday… or not, the latter will change considerably. The first week’s Sunday never sees tennis. This is one of the features of Wimbledon. But, by 2022, this tradition will end. On this Tuesday, at the general spring press conference, the organizers of the London tournament announced that next year the tournament would host matches on Sunday.
Jean-Rene Lisnard and Roger Federer’s dream in Wimbledon
“This gives us an opportunity to improve the reach, fans and fan base of Wimbledon and tennis, both in the UK and globally, at a critical time.”
“With turf technology and maintenance improvements and other measures over the past five years, we are confident that we are able to handle the courts, especially the center court., Without a full day of rest. This gives us an opportunity to improve the reach, fan and fan base of Wimbledon and tennis, both in the UK and globally, at a critical time. This will ensure greater flexibility and fairness of the tournament schedule for our rivals, and will allow us to create a different atmosphere on mid-Sunday, with a strong focus on the local community in particular. We look forward to starting this new tradition in 2022 as a celebration of the history of Center Court.”, Explained Ian Hewitt, President of AELTC.
