This year’s tennis schedule has already been shuffled around because of the ongoing COVID pandemic. Players and fans alike are hoping for a return to normal, but that seems unlikely to happen until the tail end of the 2021 season at the soonest. It’s a real shame as tennis legends Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Serena Williams are in the twilight of their careers and only have two to three more years left of being able to compete at a high level.
Tennis Grand Slams
The first tennis Grand Slam of the year is taking place a little later than normal because of the coronavirus pandemic, as the Australian Open will get underway in February instead of January. It will be the 109th edition of the prestigious tournament and is scheduled to begin on Monday, February 8 and conclude on Sunday, February 21. Sports have not seen many crowds since the pandemic began but crowds of up to 30,000 are expected at Melbourne Park. Eight-time winner Novak Djokovic is listed as the favorite on the men’s side, while 2019 winner Naomi Osaka is the favorite on the women’s side.
The 2021 French Open is tentatively scheduled to take place at its typical time in the tennis calendar. The 2020 edition of this Grand Slam was originally supposed to kick off on May 24, but it was moved to September 27 due to COVID-19. There were fears that event would run into multiple issues due to the weather, yet things largely worked out fine as Rafael Nadal continued to show his dominance at Roland Garros.
Tennis fans are hoping to see the familiar sights and hear the soothing sounds at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London this summer. The 2020 Wimbledon Championships were cancelled due to COVID-19. It was the first time a Grand Slam event had been cancelled in 75 years, and everyone involved is hoping we don’t have a second cancellation in 2021.
The U.S. Open should be back in its traditional home as the last Grand Slam of the year. The COVID pandemic led to the U.S. Open being the second major in 2020 as Wimbledon was cancelled and the French Open was pushed back to late September. Injuries have typically added up by this time leading to several players skipping the event, but that might not be the case in 2021 given all the time off.
