Speaking of this year, tennis was hit badly by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though there is now some normalcy in the lives of people, there are still restrictions that need to be followed in the times to come. Large gatherings are strictly avoided, and it is mandatory to maintain social distancing. Due to such norms, places like theatres, concert halls, and stadiums are either closed or partially opened in certain places.
