‘Devastated!’ – Roger Federer, Serena Williams, and rest of the tennis world react to Wimbledon cancellation

Roger Federer serving at Wimbledon

The tennis world is reeling from the news that, for the first year since the end of the second world war, there will be now Wimbledon after the coronavirus got the best of the schedulers. We take a look at how the sport’s biggest stars are reacting. 

Roger Federer was one of the first to get his reaction out there, and given his affinity with SW19 it is unsurprising he was left largely lost for words.

Serena Williams was so shocked she temporarily lost the ability to spell.

Defending champion Simona Halep, meanwhile, was focusing on the positives…

Unlike Federer and Williams, Coco Gauff has plenty of other chances to play at Wimbledon to look forward to, but even she declared herself brokenhearted.

Kevin Anderson was keeping it philosophical.

Angelique Kerber had too much to say about it for one mere tweet to contain…

As did Petra Kvitova.

Carla Suarez Navarro, who is retiring this year, was slowly coming to terms she will never be back at Wimbledon as a player.

Felix Auger-Aliassime kept it concise.

Kirsten Flipkens was hurting, though.
