The U.S.Open 2020 is the first Grand slam event will begin on 31st August followed by tennis tours lay-off due to ongoing pandemic. ATP tours resumed with Western & Southern Open 2020 in New York.

Therefore tennis players need to accommodate themselves to new environments such as bio-secure bubbles and strict guidelines to stay away from the virus infection. Definitely, this would be a great challenge for players to cope up with their mental and physical fitness.

Despite the current situation World No.05 Daniil Medvedev was excited to see how the players can cope up with the U.S.Open. The Russian player said “Every player is different. Some are always ready to play for five hours and be ready the next day, but not everyone”
