Annabel Croft: For Roger Federer Wimbledon cancellation is a nightmare

Former British No. 1 Annabel Croft believes the decision of the cancellation of Wimbledon is bad news especially for Roger Federer, Serena Willaims, and Andy Murray. The official cancellation of the Championships due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic that affected the whole world arrived on last Wednesday.

The Swiss Maestro intended to avenge the big disappointment of last year when he was forced to bow to Novak Djokovic, after having wasted two match points on his service in the final: “How many times can Federer realistically try to win Wimbledon? If Roland Garros manages to play at the end of the year, Rafael Nadal will benefit more than any other player.

Without forgetting Serena Williams, who has her best chance of winning another Slam right on the London grass-courts, so she will also be disappointed. Now Serena is 38-years-old and she has formed a family. There are several question marks.

Andy Murray would have liked to play another Wimbledon, he will have to review his plans now. It's a nightmare for them," she said in an interview. The cancellation of the Championships raises serious doubts about the actual resumption of tennis in 2020.

Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley has admitted that there is no guarantee in this sense, so much so that the Australian Open themselves may decide to reschedule the edition 2021. For now, the 2020 tennis season is suspended until July 13th.

In total, in career Roger Federer has won eight Wimbledon titles (a record), Serena has won seven titles, and Murray two titles on the All England Club lawns.
