    Wimbledon 2021: French Open runner-up Tsitsipas exits first round, visitors return after a year

    New Delhi. Fans returned to the stadium with the return of Wimbledon, which was postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Organizers have initially allowed a limited number of spectators, but they plan to allow up to 15,000 spectators on Center Court for the men’s and women’s singles finals to be held two weeks later.

    Novak Djokovic won the first round but the first day’s matches were interrupted by rain. More than a dozen matches had to be postponed as play started four and a half hours late on the first day. Djokovic, one away from a record-tying 20th Grand Slam title and sixth Wimbledon, defeated 19-year-old wild card holder Jack Draper 4-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2.
