Full Wimbledon crowds allowed from quarterfinals to finals

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Crowds at Wimbledon’s Centre Court and No. 1 Court can increase to 100% capacity for the singles quarterfinals through the end of the tournament. The All England Club says Sunday that will mark “the first full outdoor stadiums at a sporting event” in Britain since the start of the coronavirus pandemic last year. Wimbledon was canceled in 2020 because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The club said the rise from what has been limited to 50% full crowds at the two main arenas comes after “the successful staging of the first week of The Championships.” The quarterfinals are scheduled to begin Tuesday.
