The prize money set aside for the Wimbledon Championships will be distributed to 620 players who were set to take part at this year`s cancelled tournament, the All England Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC) said on Friday. Wimbledon, which was initially scheduled for June 29-July 12, was cancelled for the first time since World War Two due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has killed more than 44,000 people in the United Kingdom.
