Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal discussed the prospects for the 2020 season.
“During a pandemic, we received very bad news every day. Now I’m back on the court, we are slowly returning to normal life.
If you asked me if I would like to go to New York for the tournament now, I would answer no.
US Open without viewers? This is not the best option. But we do not know whether the situation will improve in two months. I hope everything goes in the right direction. I am convinced that in the USA they want to hold the tournament in good conditions, as well as the French Roland Garros. If it is safe, then the tournament will take place. Otherwise, play will not make sense.
I can’t predict the future, but I try to follow all the events from the world of tennis. We should be able to travel and play without fear of getting sick and infecting someone else. To do this, invent a vaccine. I hope that good news awaits us, ”L’Équipe quotes Nadal.
US Open 2020 should be held from August 24 to September 13. Earlier media reported that the US Open could be moved to Indian Wells. The decision on the fate of the tournament will be made by the end of June. Also, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Roland Garros was previously postponed to fall, and Wimbledon was canceled for the first time since 1945.
