The grass-court Grand Slam begins on June 28th.

Wimbledon will open with 50 percent crowd capacity before peaking to full capacity crowds for the finals.

"We are continuing to work closely with the Government to finalise the details including the requirements for Covid-status certification for spectators," the All England Club said in a statement. "We are pleased to have worked closely with the government, public health bodies, and our local authority in Merton, to confirm that, as part of this next phase of pilot events, the Championships 2021 will begin on Monday 28 June with 50% capacity across the grounds, building to full capacity crowds of 15,000 on Centre Court for the finals weekend.

"This will enable us to fulfil our aspiration of staging the best Wimbledon possible within the current circumstances, with the health and safety of all those who make Wimbledon happen—our guests, competitors, members, staff, media, officials, local residents, and partners—remaining our highest priority."

Wimbledon was cancelled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

In the 2019 men's final, Novak Djokovic denied two championship points in the final set fighting off rival Roger Federer, 7-6 (5), 1-6, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 13-12 (3) to successfully defend his Wimbledon title in The Championships' longest final—and first men’s major final decided in a fifth-set tie breaker.

Simona Halep blazed by Serena Williams, 6-2, 6-2, in a brilliant 55-minute thrashing to make history as the first Romanian to win Wimbledon in 2019.
