Nadal won’t play US Open

Defending champion Rafael Nadal said Tuesday he will not play the US Open, citing concerns over the coronavirus and slamming tennis’s “barbaric” revised calendar. “After many thoughts I have decided not to play this year’s US Open,” Nadal said on Twitter. “The situation is very complicated worldwide, the COVID-19 cases are increasing, it looks like we still don’t have control of it. “This is a decision I never wanted to take but I have decided to follow my heart this time and for the time being I rather not travel.”
