Just think, Nadal could have equaled Federer's Grand Slam record by now had there not been a pandemic.

Think yes, but about more important things. The US open must be cancelled, because with all the redrawals it has become irrelevant as a grand slam but mostly because of public health concerns.

more players will redraw now Nadal and other top players have done so. It will be a devalued tournament and the winners not the best but the best of the rest

 the first time since 1999 that neither player has featured in the main draw of a Grand Slam event.

Over 20 years! That is extraordinary for tennis, a grueling sport that requires players to be in top physical condition.

Is this year Kei’s chance?!!

Is this year Kei’s chance?!!

I doubt it. He's too busy making appearances in those annoying Uber Eats ads which appear in every god damn Youtube video.

Sorry, I didn't realize people could only think of one thing.

It makes no sense to hold this tournament right now.

It's no different from Grand Slams missing top players due to injury
