Changes in Order of Play of Wimbledon Tennis Championships
  • It is always tried that all the scheduled matches and already advertised days should not change.
  • But sometime it becomes mandatory to change the schedule of the match from one court to the other.
  • It may take pace due to various reasons like:
    • Committee always put the effort to accomplish the championship tournaments within the stipulated time period of 13 days of event.
    • But few players get involved in several other events during the championships, so sometimes it becomes mandatory to shift the match in order to avoid collision.
    • Committee makes the schedule in such a way so that similar resting time can be allotted to each player in between the matches.
    • Sometimes few matches have to postpone due to the late finish of the previous match.
    • Few matches can be substituted due to some other reason also.
  • Though it is regretful and frustrating to change the schedule of the match but committee expects the co-operation from the spectators in this regards.
