If they really try play all 3 slams later this year, the last time to start with french should be late july / early august. And even then Im not sure september is not too late for wimbledon.

This may be true for "local" sports (within reach of a car drive), but this rules out international sports like the pro tennis circuit. How will players travel to the tournament with all the restrictions? Will there be flights available?I think most sports will try to start by June/July, even if that means crowd limitations. There is too much money involved, and this is not a world war where 5 billion people die
Yeah, I would think that would be possible (fingers crossed) and a few smallish tournaments the last 2 or 3 months of the season would be a good way of warming the players back up so they are ready for what will hopefully be a fully season in 2021, fingers crossed.The tours should organize indoor tournaments in October, November and December in America and Europe...
I think this is a reasonable timescale to aim for yes. I think for major league sports like MLB, NBA, NFL in the US and football in Europe we are probably looking at resuming in the summer, at some point. But every league in every country will be different and while some might be able to resume mid summer, others I suspect might not be able to resume until late summer or the fall. Each league and each country will have a different pace in which they are able to reintroduce sporting fixtures.I agree, tennis will be one of the last sports to get back to some normalcy
But local sports, like NBA, I can see 2 teams that have 10 people playing by summer, unless some real disaster happens
For most of the world the last couple of weeks the spread has been very significant though. I believe we are at least a couple of months, and perhaps more before we have a clear appreciation of the impact this virus will have on life. What we have seen in Italy and the current rapid spread of the virus in Spain and France is very much a cause for concern. I really do not wish to fear monger but it would also be wrong to assume we have seen the worst of this virus already. Having said that, I hope, like everyone else in the world, that we can combat the spread of this disease as quickly as possible.Yes, the unknown is always a reason people worry. But its been around for months now and its not destroying the population. Its overloading hospitals. Eventually there will be social distancing with sports, then a vaccine. But for now, its all speculation and people should stay home as much as possible
At the risk of sounding too political, that the United States is led right now by an unstable, narcissistic nutter who transparently cares more about his own image than the well-being of the country he leads is very much a cause for concern.I hope it doesnt turn out much worse than most of the scientists expect. Trump tweeted
WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!
Then he retweeted
15 days. Then we isolate the high risk groups and the rest of us get back to work before it’s all over for everyone!!
