Fans had to wait for the tournament after it was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic; the only grand slam to be canceled.

The 2021 tournament will take place on Monday, June 28, and the men’s final will take place on Sunday, July 11.

And after the tournament organizer – the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) – said the grand slam will be a pilot event in the third phase of the UK government’s Event Research Program (ERP), the final stages of the event will be played in front of crowds at 100% capacity.

The event will resume with a capacity of 50% of the stadiums for the center court and the No.1 court, and 75% for the smaller exhibition courts.

For the fourth round and quarter-finals, the AELTC said it aimed to increase allowances for center court, No.1 court and ground passes. In addition, for the semi-finals and finals, it aims to have 100% capacity on center court and a small number of tickets on No. 1 court and ground passes.

Ticket holders will be required to show proof of Covid-19 status upon entry, either in the form of both vaccine doses or a negative lateral flow test within 48 hours of attendance.

They must also wear face coverings on site grounds, but will not be required to wear masks and maintain social distancing while seated at the site.

The AELTC has also announced that there will be a 5% reduction in prize money.

Djokovic is aiming for his sixth Wimbledon title and his 20th Grand Slam title after winning Roland Garros in June.

If he does, he will equal Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in 20 Grand Slam singles titles in total.

Osaka has revealed that she has “suffered from long periods of depression” since winning her first Grand Slam title in 2018.
