It's been almost 8 months since the last Slam in tennis, but the 2nd one of the year is finally here. And what more fitting place to have it than at Flushing Meadows–Corona Park? No Rafa, no Roger. Novak Djokovic has started the year 23-0, will he go 30-0 once it's over? The women's event look wide open. The two faves are still Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka, but there are question marks over both with the former not being in form and the latter being injured. And will we even get two weeks of 100% focus on tennis or will there be more boycotts or covid drama?

Most people I've seen on a tennis court since Carly Rae Jepsen and Novak Djokovic sang Call Me Maybe in 2012.

I just hope all the players will be fine. According to his IG live last Friday night, Benoit was playing cards with Kiki and others.

· 1h Hard to imagine some other players are not going to be withdrawn from the US Open after the contact tracing on Benoit Paire is complete. He's a social person & a card player. But what's clear is that the USTA will have had something like this in its scenarios. They modeled many

1h One of savviest & most proactive steps @usopen has taken to limit Covid spread is being used right now in @benoitpaire case — all tournament badges imbedded with RF locator chip. Organizers can trace movements of infected person  to see whom he/she was near — at BJKNTC and hotel.

Noah Rubin said in his podcast (linked in last week's thread) that, as of now, the players will not be made to withdraw even if they had close contact with Paire.

Eleven players have apparently been identified as close contacts, again according to Noah Rubin (who sourced it from the french players)

I'm surprised to see Tatjana Maria in the draw. She announced that she was pregnant in April. I can't find how pregnant she was then, and I can't find anything about her having given birth. So she might play five-six months pregnant, or after just recently having given birth.

Which day of April?

Earliest reports I can find are dated April 3, in reference to a video "A day in the life of..." from the WTA. It will have been produced a few days prior to April 3, but no way was it an april fool's day prank.

11m I chose to come to US open over prague 125k as I fancied my chances of playing singles as 3rd alternate because I knew positive tests and close contacts would cause issues. But here we go again with rule changes. If I knew that anyone could play I’d not be here trying my luck.


touchy subject, but she's right and I'd be annoyed if I was in her position too.

C'mon, she could just be still pregnant or haven given birth.

Didn't Minella play Wimbledon like 7 months pregnant?

Would she not have shared the news if she had a baby? And would there not be a visible baby bump if she was still pregnant? And would you even take the risk of playing in these times if you were?
Anyway, let's hope it's one of those scenarios.

Bolkvadze has a truly tragic serve. Makes a ton of double faults, and she doesn't even do so by putting anything on either her first or second serve.

I now understand why she only held serve two times in three sets in her first round match.
