Serbia's Filip Krajinovic, 28, expected Wimbledon to get cancelled but still felt sad after the news became official. Last week, the AELTC announced they would hold a meeting this week to discuss the faith of Wimbledon.
This Wednesday, Wimbledon got officially called off for the first time since 1945. "All this came as a shock and I'm very disappointed because Wimbledon got cancelled," Krajinovic told Sport Klub. "But on the other side we expected this.
We keep regularly in touch with tournament organizers. We have our group on WhatsApp and they keep us updated on what's happening. I'm very sorry but the priority is to get through (the coronavirus pandemic) as safe as possible and to return to the court as soon as possible."
Wimbledon got cancelled but the French Open organizers still plan to hold the event. On March 17, the FFT rescheduled the French Open to start on September 20. But before the French Open, the US Open is scheduled to take place from August 31 - September 13.
World No. 32 Krajinovic hopes the US Open will take place but he doubts that will happen. "I hope the US Open will be played but I doubt that will happen," Krajinovic admitted. "We all hope the US Open will be played but if it gets cancelled I think our season will be over and we will see each other next year." For now, the tennis season has been suspended until at least July 13.
