The Story of 2020 in Tennis: Part 2 – The Pandemic


“I'm not loving you, the way I wanted to

What I had to do, had to run from you


So keep ya COVID lockdown”


That’s right, the tennis world was abruptly shutdown when the novel coronavirus hit the sporting world. Watching the tennis world wrestle with its “new normal” was a rather remarkable sequence of events. Do you remember the time when the Miami Open really thought it could stage a tournament in early April? Ah those were the days.


Strap yourself in for the Novak Djokovic Magical Mystery Ride. It has everything. Charlatans, Positive Energy Water, shifting of blame, and of course, everyone getting COVID.
