To ban tennis players from rented house near All England Club in Wimbledon - Diario Sudoeste
Regarding the epidemic, the Wimbledon organization will ban tennis players from renting houses on the outskirts of the All England Club in the suburbs of London, according to the British newspaper Daily Mail. Athletes will have to stay in hotels in the center of the English capital.

The idea is to reduce tennis players’ contact with the outside world, as if it were a “bubble”. But the organizers have not yet confirmed whether they will adopt this more rigorous format, as was last year’s US Open and this year’s Australian Open. In the case of another, tennis players could only walk out of the room for five hours a day.

Renting a house or apartment on the outskirts of Wimbledon is a common habit among tennis players as the British Grand Slam is far away from the center and the area around them does not have many housing options. Some teams and other tennis players gather to stay in the same house temporarily. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic usually take families and teams to the same homes where they always rent a few meters from the All England Club.

Since the tournament only starts on 28 June, the organization still operates with a number of options for the games being played. This can happen without fans or with some of them in the stands. A common format is also possible, as depends on the pace of the vaccination process in the United Kingdom, prior to the epidemic.

The British Grand Slam was the only one of the four tournaments of this level that was not held last year due to an epidemic. For this year, the organization does not operate with the possibility of cancellation or postponement.
