In the latest sports
news, we have heard that the US open is finally happening! From August 24th to
September 13th, most of the matches will be held as per the schedule but a lot
of players are not agreeing to the terms and conditions due to the pandemic.
Novak Djokovic, Simona Halep, Ashleigh Barty, and Rafael Nadal have shared their concerns with the management while Roger Federer has completely dropped out of the US Open and all the future tournaments of 2020. The coronavirus pandemic is still a cause of periodic deaths in the United States so we understand the reluctance of the players, especially since the matches will be conducted without an audience.
No doubles draw and no mixed, junior or wheelchair draws will be played so we can already predict the kind of tournaments it will be. A lot of players are angry with the decision of holding the US Open at all but others like Serena Williams and Andy Murray have expressed excitement.
So what do you say, should players risk their health and join the tournament?
