Wimbledon is a strange one
. If the curves are correct we 'should' be coming out of this nightmare as it starts. The event itself would be a tremendous sign of hope if they could get it going. They must as well be looking for an alternate date.
A landgrab on the Olympic fortnight would work too
. A decision either way won't be far off. We'll know within the week I suspect.
An Olympic "land grab" would mean a delay of just 3 weeks though. There is no way Wimbledon is happening in July or August, I feel sure about that.
I do find the silence on Wimbledon very strange. After all, the French Open has already been delayed from May until the end of September and early October.
Maybe the All England Club, suffocating sticklers for tradition that they are, will prove to be as inflexible as the IOC appeared to be and who only moved the Olympics when effectively forced into the decision by others. Wimbledon may have to feel similar pressure unfortunately. 2020 is going to be a non sporting summer, like it or not, tradition or not.
