Wimbledon, the much-awaited and only grass-court Grand Slam will begin from June 28. The 2020 edition of the marquee tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. After World War II, fans were deprived of the breathtaking tennis action at Wimbledon for the very first time in 2020.
Although a few big names like Naomi Osaka, ‘king of clay’ Rafael Nadal, Simona Halep, and Dominic Thiem will not feature in the tournament, World No. 1 Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Serena Williams, and other top-rated players are set to grace the event.
