Two-time Grand Slam winner Amelie Mauresmo says it is time to draw a line under the 2020 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, adding “no vaccine = no tennis”.

Tennis is officially on a break until June 7 due to Covid-19, but both the ATP and WTA have admitted that the hiatus could be extended if there is no slowdown in the pandemic while Wimbledon, which is due to start on June 29, will reportedly be cancelled.
The French Open, meanwhile, has been rescheduled for after the US Open with September 20 the new date, but it remains to be seen if there will be any warm-up events for the grass-court event.

Mauresmo, though, feels the whole season should be cancelled.

“I think that we are going to have to draw a line under the 2020 tennis season,” she wrote on Twitter.

“The international circuit = male and female players of all nationalities including their coaching staff, spectators and people from all over the world who bring these events to life.

“No vaccine = no tennis.”
