The Wimbledon Championships had to be canceled last year due to the coronavirus. Fans missed out on the tournament and so did the players. This year, the UK government, with all necessary precautions, has decided to open up stadiums with certain precautions. The finals will be the first event to keep 100% capacity for spectators in the stadium since the pandemic began last March.

The 2019 Wimbledon Final

The cancellation last year was the first time since World War II that the tournament had not been played, and the 2019 Wimbledon finals had shown the real meaning of having a full crowd.

Novak Djokovic and Simona Halep had won the men’s and women’s singles, respectively. Djokovic defeated Roger Federer in a fully packed center court, in a thrilling five-setter. Simona Halep defeated Serena Williams, 6-2, 6-2 which was a rather easy final for the Romanian. This time around, the crowd will be expecting the same intensity and battle between the finalists, both in the men’s and women’s singles final.
