Report: Wimbledon To Be Cancelled, not Post-Poned

I just got a package from UK yesterday. I am scared. Should I quarantine it? It is a tennis shoes

What shoes did you get? Are these the ubersonic 3's? You need to clean the surface of the box thoroughly because the virus can survive on surfaces for limited periods of time.

I received some shoes from Adidas last week and the box had a noxious black dust / film on the box. Most likely dust from the warehouse but the box was still cleaned thoroughly as a precautionary measure because the warehouse obviously had filthy conditions.
 
Seeing Djokovic move to 6 Wimbledon titles would have been interesting going into 2021. He would have started putting pressure on Pete & Fed considering a victory this year would have made him 6-1 in finals.

So no 40-15 drama? 8-B
I wonder if the late tournaments will be played, like Basel. And if Rafa and Novak will show up? Could be the greatest Basel ever:giggle:

Let us pray and hope sense prevails and no need for entertainment and sports until a vaccine is found.

We don't want tennis stadiums to be breeding grounds for spreading the pandemic.

That's because in China the police are killing the people who aren't self isolating nor staying in quarantine.
They don't kill people for leaving their home and spreading the virus over in USA, Canada, UK, etc.
And sending a bill to next of kin for the bullet used by the firing squad.

Djokovic was lucky as hell to win the last 2 Wimbledons, even with his atrocious draws.
Well, when he was on the ropes, Nadal failed to beat him in the crucial points in 2018, and a year later Federer would blow 2 match points on his own serve. Novak was just stronger mentally to come out victorious in both 2018 and 2019. So, that was less to do with luck and more to do with his mental strength.
 
Virtua Tennis 2009 is in my disc tray right now. Love the VT series. I've got at least 3 of them in the series, 3, 2009 and 4.
Which is the best of the tennis video games in terms of accuracy to the tours and current players?

Is there a clear frontrunner in that respect?

I know nothing about video games, but I remember playing one of the tennis games on a friend's PlayStation and the realism was extraordinary.

It had most of the current day players as selectable options, but there were events missing and he said it was because they weren't able to get licensing to add all the tournaments.

I haven't played the new generation tennis games (Xbox One, PS4) but the most realistic one before that was definitely Top Spin 4.

Virtua Tennis is more for arcade gamer enthusiasts. Which I'd definitely fall under.

Strange things like wars and pandemics happen. You take the good with the bad. And there is no event called GOAT and no prize money.

Whatever happens now is not going to change the fact that these three will be considered equals, if that's any consolation to you.

1,000th time: Wimbledon announced on February 28, 2020: "Playing with no spectators is not an option with the members of the AELTC." Informed tennis fans know this, never mind it's been repeated here dozens of times.
I knew it too that doesn't mean I accept it. But keep up with the attitude doesn't make you seem like an ******* at all (y)

The world is coming to an end. Not since World War 2, which ended 75 years ago, has The Championships failed to take place. :(:(:(
And it will also be the first time in tennis history that is won't happen grandslam on the grass. During World War I and World War II, when Wimbledon was interrupted, at least the US Open took place, which was played on grass until 1974.

I don't think the French Open will take place either. Pandemics take several months before things get back to normal. The best we can hope for is to have some tennis by the end of September.
and play only for 1.5 months before the season ends?
Just call it a season and focus on next year

I've been playing a bit more than usual, which is basically a stupid amount of video games. What do you play? I just max levelled my char on Borderlands 3 on Steam.
I also usually play a stupid amount of games and expected to go up even more but have oddly been playing less than normal through all this. Been using the time for TV instead.

Where was his mental strength at RG 2013 when he couldn't hit a smash in that semi or when he went flying into the net?
