Wimbledon canceled for first times since World War II

Wimbledon has been cancelled for the first time since World War II because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The All England Club announced after an emergency meeting that the event it refers to simply as The Championships is being scrapped for 2020.

Wimbledon was scheduled from June 29 to July 12. The next edition of the tournament will be June 28 to July 11, 2021.

Wimbledon is the first major tennis championship completely wiped out this year because of the coronavirus. The tournament began in 1877 and has been played every year aside from two periods: 1915-18 (World War I) and 1940-45 (World War II).

Earlier, Euro and Tokyo Olympics were postponed for 12 months.
