KIKI BERTENS TENNIS:-

Elina Svitolina and Kiki Bertens are the latest addition in the list of the players who withdraw from the US Open. They have withdrawn from the US Open due to the global Coronavirus Pandemic.

Rafael Nadal and women’s world No. 1 Ashleigh Barty have decided not to travel to New York to play the hardcourt Grand Slam as well as the Western & Southern Open which will be a warm-up for the US Open.

Elina Svitolina said on Twitter “I understand and respect all the efforts they are putting to make it happen in a safe environment, but I still don’t feel comfortable to travel to the U.S. without putting my team and myself at high risk,”

According to Reuters, the latest reports claimed that the United States and its territories have 4,958,932 of the highly contagious coronavirus cases and almost 161,097 people have died of the illness across the United States

Bertens said on Instagram”The situation around COVID-19 is still worrying and the health of everyone and the control over this virus is a priority,”

The US Open organizers are developing a bio-secure “bubble” in New York so that the tournament can go through from Aug. 31 without spectators. But the main question to be answered remain about whether players have to go through mandatory quarantines after returning home from the US Open.

Former world champions Andy Murray said on Monday that players traveling to New York want a bit affirmation that they would not face any mandatory quarantines at home after returning from Europe.

Bertens further added”Our prime minister indicated yesterday that we should be quarantined for 14 days after coming back from the States,”

“Of course we respect this as a team and this would disturb our preparation for my beloved clay-court tournaments in Rome and Paris.”

The Italian Open scheduled to take place on September 20 in Rome and just after a week French Open Grand Slam in Paris will start.
