In times of Corona and with the pause of the worldwide WTA and ATP Tour at least until July 20, tournament organisers discuss options of how to resume the tennis matches. For many organisers, ghost tournaments seem to be the way to go. But many tennis players are not excited about that possibility.
The French news agency “AFP” the Wimbledon winner Kvitova said, that “I would like to play another Grand Slam, but if that’s the way it is (referring to ghost matches), I’d rather cancel it“. In her opinion, the audience and fans function like motors for tennis players. Kvitova also said that a Grand Slam “does not deserve such a thing”. The only good thing coming out of ghost games for her is that she would not have to wear make-up.
