The Day 4 of the US Open 2020 was catastrophic for many top players: Andy Murray, Milos Raonic, Grigor Dimitrov, Garbine Muguruza and Aryna Sabalenka were eliminated from the American Slam. A journey that will continue instead for Dominic Thiem, Daniil Medvedev, Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams, all qualified for the third round.
Talking about Serena Williams, the American expressed her opinion about Novak Djokovic and the fledgling PTPA: "I would be very interested in learning more about PTPA, because I have the impression that I cannot formulate an idea without going deeper.
I'm always on Novak Djokovic's side, of course. At the same time, though, I've been on the WTA Tour for thirty years and I'm aware of a lot of the things that are happening. I would like to, but I couldn't really say more.
I have the feeling that Novak has very strong opinions which are often right. Yes, I just have to wait. " Serena sides with Djokovic, while Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are against PTPA.
The best and the worst from the US Open day 4
After the tweets of the Spanish and the Swiss, here is Novak Djokovic's answer: "Federer and Nadal? Yes, I talked to them.
We talked about this several times in the past, I talked to them even before making it official and before appear all together on the pitch last Saturday I respect their decision not to be involved, they believe this is not the right time, but I don't share their thoughts.
I do not agree. For the tennis association it is always the right time, I believe that in the last 20 years any moment would have been the right one. For some reasons it has never been able to materialize but now finally all this is being born.
We continue to move forward without any hesitation. " In the meantime, news has arrived about the Italian Open, just during the US Open. After the problems that arose during the Adria Tour and with the American tournaments that are still being held today with the Bull and without any kind of crowd, in Italy they have decided not to invite crowds to the courts.
In the next few days, we will have to decide what to do with the ticket issue, since most of the tickets were sold before the Lockdown. There will be no crowd, but there will be no lack of excitement in Rome, which this year, except for the absence of the injured Roger Federer, will enjoy the presence of all the greatest tennis players on the planet.
Today day 5 at the US Open 2020: on the court Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Naomi Osaka and Petra Kvitova.
