Wimbledon tweeted a video montage on Thursday featuring clips from past Grass court Grand Slam tournaments, with narration by Roger Federer.
Federer, who is the most popular male singles player in the history of the tournament with eight titles encourages fans to help the medical staff who are currently at the forefront of global coronavirus combat.
The pandemic has killed over 85,000 around the world and led to cancellation or postponement of sports events, including the 2020 Olympics. The Wimbledon was canceled this year for the first time since the Second World War.
“Since 1877 Wimbledon fans have embraced The Championships,” Federer says in the video. “You have watched through multiple examples of the screen at all times of the day and night. Descended from afar. Even queued. My, how you have queued. This summer sadly, we must come together by staying apart. No tents will be pitched, no records broken, no trophies engraved.
“But as we say thank you for your passion and help, we remind ourselves that countless winners will be crowned. As frontline workers over the globe fight for us, we cheer for them. For now, with play suspended, we are united in the hope that tomorrow will be greater than today.”
