Coronavirus —

German tennis player Julia Görges, number 38 in the WTA ranking, He does not believe that the tennis season will restart this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. “We are a completely international sport in which players from all countries have to unite. Logically looking at it in terms of freedom of travel, I would be very surprised if there was a tournament this year, “ Goerges said in the Saturday edition of the German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

Tennis has been suspended since March, at least until the end of July. Görges, 31, said she is “relatively relaxed” from forced rest and that she is also would accept a closed door reset for a while, as in soccer in Germany and other countries.

“Spectators contribute a lot to a tennis match. Tennis is environmental and emotionally based, but I could imagine it without an audience for a short period of time, “ Goerges said, adding that “parties without people should not become a permanent solution.”
