The American Tennis Association will open the four major tournaments, the US Open, which was originally scheduled for August 31, with no spectators, the Associated Press reported on the 15th. It will be officially announced this week on the premise that it will be possible to obtain support from the local government for the prevention of new coronavirus infection. As of April, the association was unwilling to hold in the open.
In order to prevent infection, qualifying for singles has been stopped, restrictions on staff accompanying athletes, and consolidation of accommodation facilities are being considered. Some influential players such as Novak Djokovic [Serbia], who is ranked 1st in the world in men, are cautious about participating due to strict regulations.
The Wimbledon Championships were canceled for the other four major competitions, and the French Open was postponed to September-October. [Joint]
