Tennis: Serena Williams Will Be At the US OpenBy Samuel E
Serena Williams confirms her participation in the next US Open. The American tennis player is confident that the commitment and the program presented by the USTA will guarantee the success of the tournament.
Serena Williams will be on the field in New York to attempt, once again, to match Margaret Court’s record. A sigh of relief for the USTA and the US Open which will be able to count on the participation of one of the most anticipated players.
Only a few days ago the hypothesis of Serena Williams skipping this US Open circulated due to the limitations provided by the organization: a very strict regulation to comply with all health regulations to prevent further infections and spread of the new coronavirus.
The current number 9 in the WTA world ranking, which has taken advantage of the long mandatory break to allow her body to recover from many commitments and injuries, is now ready to take the field: “It will be exciting to go back to playing and I can’t wait to go back to New York. More than six months have passed since the last time for many of us. “
In the interview reported by Tennis.com, Serena Williams also applauds the work of the US federation and the commitment to the organization: “The USTA has done a magnificent job ensuring everyone’s safety during the US Open. ”
For the first time, there will be no audience, except for the one “at home”, the one who has always cheered for her: “The atmosphere you breathe in New York is unique to me. Everyone gives me very strong emotions, and everyone’s support allowed me to win more than one game. The presence of the audience in the stands will be very missed, ” she said.
