WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — The chief executive at Wimbledon says the All England Club won’t be showing England’s Women’s World Cup semifinal on Tuesday against the United States on screens around the grounds.

The All England Club had a similar issue last year, when the men’s team reached the semifinals at the World Cup in Russia.

“We’re being consistent, as we have been in previous years,” Richard Lewis said. “We’ll show the tennis. People can watch the football on their mobile devices, and we’re very relaxed about that. But the big screen will stick to the tennis, as in previous years.”
