Suggestion in statements by various parties is that the events that would have been 2nd week of RG will be cancelled now, but that seems silly really. But WTA, ATP and Wimbledon are all talking of a 1 week shorter grass season.

My understanding, as expressed in this piece from last night, is that the Libema Open is already effectively off, Stuttgart will go ahead if it receives compensation from FFT, and it’s anyone’s guess what the British grass-court season looks like
