“It’s Like Being On A Merry-Go-Round”- New York Governor
Andrew Cuomo, the Governor of New York said, “You’re going to see our numbers and the Northeast numbers probably start to increase because the virus that you see now in the South and the West, California has real trouble, it’s going to come back here. It’s like being on a merry- go- round. It is totally predictable. And we are going to go through an increase. I can feel it coming. And it is so unnecessary and cruel.”
While some players are looking to make a comeback, some have also expressed uncomfortably in playing the Flushing Meadows Grand Slam event this year.
Also, the tournament can take place if the New Yorkers are successful in creating a bubble around it. However, the future is still not known and is unpredictable. Although, The US Open 2020 has scheduled to begin on August 31st at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, Flushing Meadows, New York.
