Why??? Virus is in China! And it's Italy!!!
Don't you read news ? At least 77 people are infected in Italy with 2 deaths. Some Serie A matches were postponed today and the prime minister ordered the quarantine in some cities and allowed military to ensure the quarantine is obeyed

Yeah, as long as there's no way to cure people infected with the coronavirus, they have to cancel the bigger gatherings of all sorts in order to minimize the spread as much as possible. If this isn't contained by summer, there's a chance it will reach Paris, putting the French Open in jeopardy.

Certainly annoying for Marchenko and Couacaud, but a minor issue compared to the entire problem with the virus in Italy and quite likely soon all over Europe as well.

Actually the biggest MTF ruin of all would be if CV19 extends beyond RG into W and OG. Rafole will have other RG and W chances but Daddy Roger would be toasted forever, this is his last chance for both W and OG.

Over 130 now as we speak. Europe should be prepared for an outbreak as things are happening fast at the moment.

So that's the real reason Fed is taking a break. He will isolate himself in the swiss mountains and is waiting until the rest of the tour is getting infected so he can vulture Wimbledon against a bunch of ITF players.
Smart guy this Swiss Maestro, isn't he? ;)

One of my friends is from the Bergamo area (living here with me in Barcelona) and his village is under a strict quarantine. People are basically allowed to leave the house to go to the pharmacy or supermarket, nothing else.

All schools closed for the week, public transportation shut down. Sad they can't finish the tourney, but health and safety come first.

At this rate nobody is going to play the European Clay Season. Everybody will be fit and fresh for Wimbledon, thus foiling Federer's master plan.

Edit: of course, the pandemic is not something to joke about, so I apologize if it's inappropriate.

If no clay season there is no way Grandpa Roger could take W with the whole ATP, esp. Rafole eager to play and fresh as morning daisies. Mirka would be beyond ruins.
