by LORENZO CIOTTI | VIEW 7531
At the US Open we witnessed exciting matches, which marked the history of great champions and the history of tennis. Just think of Juan Martin del Potro's thrilling victory in the 2009 final against Roger Federer, or Marin Cilic's unpredictable victory in the 2014 final against Kei Nishikori.
In recent years we have seen Delpo's come back to a Slam final at Flushing Meadows, in 2018, losing to Novak Djokovic, or Kevin Anderson's first Slam final, losing in 2017 to Rafael Nadal. Last year the Spaniard had a lot of trouble beating in the final one of the biggest surprises of the tournament, Daniil Medveded.
As for women's singles, in recent years we have enjoyed the miraculous all-Italian final between Flavia Pennetta and Roberta Vinci, in 2015, the victories of Sloane Stephens, Naomi Osaka and Bianca Andreescu.
In the following video the best magic tricks of the US Open
In the following video the best magic tricks of the US Open: from Roger Federer's tweener in the 2009 semifinal against Novak Djokovic to the absurd tricks of Nick Kyrgios and Rafael Nadal.
This year many champions will be missing due to restrictions and the fear of contagion at Covid-19: the global pandemic is bringing not only the USA, but the entire planet to its knees. For one reason or another, accidents, surgery, precaution, fear, different programming, many top players will be missing: Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Gael Monfils, Fabio Fognini, Stan Wawrinka, Nick Kyrgios, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Lucas Pouille, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Jarry.
The situation in women's singles is even more dramatic, with the absences of Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Andreescu, Kiki Bertens, Belinda Bencic, Wang Qiang, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Saisai Zheng, Julia Goerges, Barbora Strycova, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Fiona Ferro, Lin Zhu, Yafan Wang, Anastasia Potapanova and Samantha Stosur.
There will be many other stars, such as Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Stefanis Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, Dominic Thiem, Serena Williams, Sofia Kenin, Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova.
There is a lot of curiosity about such an important event that will be played in the bubble at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which will be played without crowds, without many champions and with a structure divided into three levels, a safety bubble that should ensure that the security protocols are respected and not broken.
This video is a memory of the last glorious years of the tournament, in the hope that from the next edition we can return to play with all the stars and with the crowd: this would mean that the safety conditions have been prepared and that Covid-19 is alone.
