Semi-Pro

And there is already another Australian Open that got cancelled a few days ago.

Wimbledon 2020 cancelled: #18
USO 2020 defaulted: #19
AO 2021 cancelled: #20

Pointless to discuss this now. There is 3 months before this. So much can change.
For the worse, you mean...

1. Seriously, it's not the BLACK PLAGUE. It's DOABLE.

2. It's not a contact sport.

3. FO was played. It didn't destroy the tour.

4. USO was played. It didn't destroy anything except a fraction of Novak's Ego.

5. The Australian federation is swimming in money.

6. If they cancel any more slams they might as well cancel the ATP/ITF tour. Just forget about it until 2028.

They'll figure out how to do it. If not, then move the AO to IW or Miami for '21.
Oh Gawd, anywhere but FLA! I know there are tennis entities in town, but I can't see rewarding the politics of the state! It's like another world when it comes to justice and the incompetence of not believing in science causing a super-spread of the current pandemic! :cautious:

Science isn't religion -- you can't "believe" in something that isn't a hard fact, and most science, especially as it relates to dynamic systems and their interplay, doesn't usually have hard facts or obviously correct answers.

Does anyone know if the AO also has an insurance like Wimbledon because that could also play a factor?
 
Seriously though, if AO gets cancelled, I’d like IW to be promoted to 2000 and host 2nd HC Slam. And to leave it there. Melbourne is a cursed, corrupt place in the tennis world.
If AO cancels, we should auction off AO and Wimby to the highest bidders and move the slams elsewhere.

It's not set in stone by Moses WHERE the slams should be.

Federer and Nadal are the luckiest player to ever play tennis. Wimbledon gets cancelled, AO might get cancelled.

Why not just play RG for the next 5 years? Lol.
