By 3 months ago

The US Open is trying its best to gather a strong draw for the men’s singles. Several top players like Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have not yet announced anything regarding their participation.

The US Open is scheduled to begin on 31st August. The organizers have made necessary arrangements to assure players of safety from the coronavirus. But as the calendar is cramped up many players will be forced to choose their events and so might skip some important ones.

“It will always be positive for us that events like Cincinnati or the US Open are played” – Roberto Bautista Agut

In an interview with Puntodebreak, Roberto Bautista Agut is very optimistic and says he will compete in the US Open if it happens. And also he mentions that he will surely play the US part of the resuming calendar.

“I prefer to come back as soon as possible. It will always be positive for us that events like Cincinnati or the US Open are played: it is better that they are played than not played. If the American tour goes forward, I will go and play,” Bautista Agut said.(quotes have been translated from Spanish using Google Translate)
