For the first time since World War II, the All-England Club has canceled the Wimbledon tennis tournament. Wimbledon is one of the premier events on the tennis calendar; most would say that it enjoys the highest profile of the sport’s four Grand Slam championships. The Australian Open has already been played this year, and the French Open, typically scheduled in June, has been pushed back to September. Wimbledon would have taken place from June 29th to July 12th. The year’s final Grand Slam tournament is the US Open, which is played in August in New York.
