Nick Kyrgios called ATP Tour leader Andre Gaudenzi insulting – “potatoes”
As soon as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo turned on the green light to hold the U.S. Open from August 31 to September 13, “without spectators and with the greatest security and coronavirus protection measures,” additional encouragement for the success of the Flushing Meadows Grand Slam tournament gave him six-time conqueror (1999, 2002, 2008, 2012-14) Serena Williams.
“I really can’t wait to go back to New York and play in the US Open,” said Williams, a finalist for the past two years.
– I feel that USTA will do a very good job to ensure that everything is wonderful and perfect and safe for all of us. It will be exciting. Of course, I will miss the fans, don’t get me wrong. I know very well how many times they took me in difficult matches to victories.
Will Nadal go to the US?
Serena is patriotic and can no longer do without tennis, ahead of her 39th birthday in September this could be her best chance to finally catch up with Margaret Court and her 24 Grand Slam titles.
The decision to hold the US Open despite the fact that the coronavirus is still being fought fiercely in the United States was also supported by the best American tennis player, John Isner. Some of the security measures have already been relaxed, some of which many leading tennis players had objections to, and expressed doubts that they would go to New York under these conditions.
Some are still not thrilled, some are openly against like Nick Kyrgios, who insultingly called ATP Tour leader Andreu Gaudenzi a “potato”. Kyrgios’ compatriot Dylan Alcott, the world’s first wheelchair tennis player, is furious that wheelchair tennis (as well as qualifications, mixed doubles, juniors …) has been removed from the competition.
– I thought I had done enough to qualify, but unfortunately I miss the only important thing: I can’t walk. This is shameless discrimination!
