I shall miss the women's matches. All that grunting, those flashing foundation garments.
There will be a lot of disappointed pervs.
Advantage television viewers.
Surely Tennis is the ultimate social distancing sport. Just move the chairs they go to between games a bit further apart. The officials and ball boys/girls can all stay 2m apart.

True. Shame the council decided to lock off our local courts.
Still open round here - just nobody playing on them.
They will say the tennis balls can carry the virus.
Think it is more they need the 40,000 a day wannabe spectators to turn up (and television cash) or they just could not pay the incredible money the players earn.
I did think they were going to place fake grass over the surface and play later.
Maybe they still will. Incredible amount of money lost and they only get the two weeks a year to make it.
I'm no fan and never watch it.
Actually I am not missing the lack of sport at all. The only sport that is my passion (Ice Hockey) never gets onto TV and the only other sport I would watch (formula 1) is on so rarely it doesn't matter. The lack of bl**dy soccer is a godsend as far as I am concerned. I would rather watch re-runs of wheel of fortune!
No time in the schedules (those that remain!) to fit it in. Those organising the French Open caused An Incident by saying it was being moved to September! Also, the shortening hours of daylight as the year moves on will make playing difficult.
That post seriously creeps me out.
What an undermining way to unnecessarily sexualise a dedicated craft at world class level involving years of training and skill.
I love Wimbledon, and will miss it (though obviously I think it was the right decision to cancel).
Edinburgh Festival cancelled too. That's a massive blow, but predictable. Shame.
Thanks. It has indeed taken me many years of training to reach world class level at this skill.
I'd better not draw our illustrious doctor's attention to ladies' ice-skating then... Oops, I just have
Those of us who were lucky enough to be present (as I was ) for the final of the ladies figure skating at the Calgary Winter Olympics in 1988 were treated to a magical night (of skating).
....and to think I almost didn't go because I thought it would be a bit boring.
I hope you kept your eyes modestly fixed below those ladies' ankles.
