Given the logistics involved, players needing to fly in from all over the world, be housed, given training facilities, transported to and from the venue, returned home safely etc etc I am not at all surprised. Particularly given the current situation in the UK, more (reported) deaths than the PRC. It would be pretty foolhardy to lock something as complex as Wimbledon in now. Airlines are stopping their operations. How on earth would players get there and back home?
