What happens when tennis stops?
Catherine Whitaker and David Law set out to examine the way in which covid-19 is impacting tennis players and events.
Hear from World No.211 Liam Broady on how he’s coping without tennis as well as the physical, mental and financial challenges he’s facing, LTA chief executive Scott Lloyd on the support package provided to British tennis players, World No.375 Sofia Shapatava on her petition seeking financial assistance from the ITF, and Queen’s tournament director Stephen Farrow on what goes on behind the scenes when a tennis event is cancelled.
Plus, what have the sport’s governing bodies said in their latest statements? And could the US Open take place without fans?
