As the sports world grapples in coronavirus pandemic, the official bodies of tennis have come up with an arduous alternative. With the resumption of tennis tournaments in August, the schedules are quite hectic.
The two Grand Slams i.e US and French Open are scheduled with just two weeks apart along with clay tournaments in Madrid and Rome in between the fortnight have also been organized.
With this hectic and tiring schedule surely players won’t even get a chance to breathe, top players like Dominic Thiem would have to choose wisley between tournaments.
As clay is his preferred surface, the two-time defending finalist at Roland Garros Thiem might consider playing in Paris over the US Open.
Dominic told TT, “First of all, it’s cool that the French Open is taking place. No matter whether in May or October. The only problem is: there are only two weeks between the US Open and the French Open – it will be almost impossible to get far with either.”
“If I plau the US Open really well, the French Open will be very, very difficult. However, flying out early in New York would be better for Paris. I have to sacrifice one of the two Grand Slams, that’s the way it is right now,” he added.
Also, the world No.2 on Tuesday announced hi participation at Mutua Madrid Open 2020 that is scheduled one day after the end of US Open.
‘World No.2 is most likely to join the likes of world No.3, Thiem and might sacrifice one of the Slams in 2020. Arguably for wlite clay counters on the men’s tour Rafa and dominic might bypass US Open’.
