Wimbledon Things We’ll Miss About All England Club Tournament This Year

But, like much of this year’s sporting calendar, it was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

That means some of tennis fans’ big questions remaining unanswered: will Serena Williams match Margaret Court’s 24 Grand Slam singles titles? Can Coco Gauff become a genuine Grand Slam contender? Does Roger Federer have one more Wimbledon win in him? Who will be the next great British hope?

But, competition aside, there are plenty of other things we’ll miss about the tournament.

Don’t pretend you come for the sport alone. We see you, you celeb hunters.

Wimbledon is obviously great for this kind of thing. The glamour of it. You have your mainstay celebs – who you can usually count on to be in attendance – your Beckhams, your Jaggers etc.

Then there are the exciting American prospects.

This year, we won’t be able to see whether singer Pharrell Williams might turn up and flout the dress code again.

Or whether Drake might, in a display of emotional maturity we could never attain, show up there to cheer on his ex, Serena Williams, like he did in 2017.

The weather – that great gift to British conversationalists.

Will it be a glorious British summer? Will the retractable roofs be brought into play? Is it still OK to drink Pimm’s in a downpour?

This is the kind of jeopardy that makes live tennis in the British summer such a thrilling prospect.

Waiting to see what Serena will wear

Williams was banned from wearing a catsuit at the French Open in 2018. It had been worn at least in part to help prevent blood clots, after giving birth.

The next year, she wore a custom Nike/Virgil Abloh two-piece, with the words, ‘Mother, Champion, Queen, Goddess’ printed on in French.
