Why Wimbledon Championships 2021 Start is Delayed on Monday?
The Wimbledon Championships are known for their bad weather, as they are subject to heavy rainfall. The Wimbledon Championships 2021, have been delayed by half an hour, and will be beginning at 11:30 GMT. The rains have yet again played the role of a villain.
No play at Wimbledon’s outside courts till 11.30am. It’s been raining, not now, though. Here we go.

Wettest Wimbledon in 15 years
A few days ago, Essential Living predicted this year to be the wettest tournament in the last 15 years. With an expected average rainfall of 5.11 mm, it will be the wettest opening day, since 1991. The rain has always been a hassle at SW19. This year, spectators are also allowed in the stadium, at a 50% capacity, and will be annoyed by the current scenario.
All opening games have been shifted by half an hour, as the rains have stopped, but the outside courts remain wet. Further information will be provided on the matter by the AELTC.
