Wimbledon cancel 18 matches as part of revised schedule as rain forces delays on day one | Tennis | Sport

Written by Administrator

Wimbledon have announced 18 matches have been forced to be cancelled on day one of the tournament with rain forcing the outside courts to delay the start of play. Rain had been forecast for the start of the tournament but there was some hope that play would get underway as scheduled at 11am.

A host of postponements were made though as the rain soon started to come down with covers on the outside courts.

As time ticked by, questions were beginning to be asked on how all the matches would be played on day one with a curfew for games to be finished by 11pm at the latest.

Most outside courts have four matches scheduled for the day but the All England Club have now confirmed that won’t happen on Monday.

Every outside court has seen at least one match cancelled, meaning the schedule could be busy on Tuesday.

There were originally 16 matches cancelled for day one but two more followed later in the day.
