The US Open, which begins Monday in New York, is the first Grand Slam tournament to take place under normal conditions since January 2020 and the Australian Open. But among men, the hierarchy was totally upset during the 18 months of the pandemic
The US Open, which begins Monday in Flushing Meadows, Queens, is the first Grand Slam tournament to return to normal operation, welcoming the public at 100% of its capacity since the massive appearance of Covid-19 in the spring of 2020. In the largest tennis stadium in the world (23,770 seats), that makes all the difference. The New York public, who here like nowhere else can influence the course of a match, are expected in numbers, provided with a valid ticket and at least one dose of vaccination.
