US Open 2020 confirmed from August 24 to September 13. But is it true? A decision came after the last few weeks of rumors related to the tournament, after ATP, WTA and ITF suspended tennis until July 31, 2020. United States is being hit hard by the Covid-19 global pandemic, which is upsetting the whole season.
A facebook page confirms the event on official dates, but there are many doubts about the reliability of the news, despite the fact that the page uses the registered trademark of the US Open. What would happen if the event were officially confirmed.
In recent weeks there has been talk of both a possible date change and a possible change of location. Instead, the New York Slam will be held on the pre-established dates and in the pre-established location, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.
During the health emergency, part of the Flushing Meadows facilities was used as a field hospital to treat Coronavirus patients. The decision was made both because the trend of the pandemic in the metropolis is gradually receding, and to ensure that the tournament does not fall into a spiral of economic problems, as the US Open does not have an insurance that protects it from these emergencies, such as that signed by Wimbledon in 2003.
