    Yes and no. Wimbledon was going to be Fed’s last even remote chance. In a way Novak and Rafa get a rest for once. The French and US Opens are still on this year at this stage.

    If Wimbledon turns out to be the only major off the calendar, then this hurts Fed the most.

    Everyone will come in fresh, whether it be later this year or next season. This is huge for players who struggle with injury, including Nadal. With an extended break it will be the players who click into gear quickly who will benefit. Fed falls into that category, but seriously the guy will be 39 this year. His ability to stay competitive post 35 has been impressive, but another come back after a lengthy period away following knee surgery is nuts. Can't expect much from him. Djokovic/Nadal will grab most of the majors when the tour resumes as there's no ATG 5/6 years their junior to challenge.

    Fwiw, the current 'plan' for RG & USO is farcical. Logistically, I don't even know how they'd manage to get players into France & the US to even play the events.

    There is next to no chance that the US open will be played this year, and as for the French being rescheduled a couple of weeks after the US open is pretty much pie in the sky.Hopefully we can kick start the tennis season with the Australian summer next year.

    Still months away and there’s no reason they can’t play two Slams in Nov to Dec if need be. There’s a long time till either are scheduled who knows.

    Still next to no chance this year i reckon, especially the US open in New York but everything is so unknown at the moment so who knows.

    Who knows, probably know more towards August- September. There may be anti-viral drugs being available by then and that could be enough to play the tennis. Who honestly knows though, we are all guessing.

    Australian tennis great Ashley Cooper has died aged 83, he reached world no 1 and won the Australian Open, Us Open and Wimbledon, he also was part of the Australian winning Davis Cup team in 1957.

    RIP. A big piece of Australia's tennis legacy has been lost.
