After months of speculation, it has been confirmed that Wimbledon will be joining other Grand Slam tournaments in a new ‘Super Tour’ that aims to shake up the traditional tennis calendar. This move will see premier events being taken away from the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).
The decision comes as a result of ongoing discussions between the organizers of the Grand Slam tournaments, with the ultimate goal of creating a more cohesive and lucrative tour for the top players in the sport. This move will see the Grand Slam tournaments, including Wimbledon, the US Open, the French Open, and the Australian Open, joining forces to form a new ‘Super Tour.’
The ‘Super Tour’ is expected to feature a series of premier events that will be held in various locations around the world, with the top players competing for lucrative prize money and ranking points. This move is likely to have a major impact on the existing WTA and ATP tours, as it will see some of the biggest and most prestigious events being taken away from their respective calendars.
The decision to create a new ‘Super Tour’ has already sparked a great deal of debate and controversy within the tennis community. While many believe that this move will ultimately be beneficial for the sport and its top players, others are concerned about the potential impact it will have on the existing tours and the development of the game at all levels.
It remains to be seen how the creation of the ‘Super Tour’ will ultimately play out, but one thing is for certain – this move is set to have a major impact on the future of tennis. With Wimbledon now set to join the other Grand Slam tournaments in this new venture, the tennis world is bracing itself for a major shake-up in the coming years.
