They used different words, but the reaction of tennis players to the cancelation of Wimbledon for the first time since World War II had one common thread - the feeling of disbelief and sadness. Here are some of the reactions from the players on Twitter to the cancelaton.
No Wimbledon in 2020. No tennis until at least July 13th. — Noah Rubin (@Noahrubin33) April 1, 2020
I am so sad to get the news today.
I’m going live on my Instagram to talk Wimbledon cancellation!
