For that, there were some talking about playing Tennis matches in empty courts.

Roger Federer revealed his opinion about this matter and mentioned He hopes that never happens.

“I can’t imagine competing in an empty stadium, I don’t succeed and I hope it never happens.”

“As much as when we train there are no people, competing is very different,”

“It is clear that the possibility is feasible. But I think we could wait for the appropriate moment to return in the best conditions,”

“with at least a third of the stadium full or half in.”

“It would be very difficult for me to play major tournaments behind closed doors,” Roger Federer said.
