The world number one headlines the opening day of a tennis major that promises to be unlike any other and which is missing several top players due to coronavirus fears. Djokovic takes on unheralded Damir Dzumhur of Bosnia-Herzegovina in a round-one evening match at an Arthur Ashe Stadium that in normal years buzzes with 23,000 screaming fans. But due to strict measures aimed at keeping COVID-19 out of the US National Tennis Center, only players, officials and a handful of media will be watching in-person this year. “It is strange to see,” said Djokovic, crediting his love of playing on the New York hardcourts to Ashe, which he described as “the most dynamic and explosive court” in the game. “The circumstances are very unusual but we have to deal with it and try to embrace it,” the Serbian superstar added. The US Open marks the first Grand Slam of the coronavirus era, and the first since the Australian Open in January and February, after the global pandemic wiped out much of the season, including Wimbledon. Players are being kept in a tightly controlled environment to minimize the risk of infection and are being tested for coronavirus regularly throughout the tournament. The men’s draw was disrupted on the eve of the tournament Sunday when France’s Benoit Paire was removed after organizers announced that an unidentified player had been withdrawn after testing positive for COVID-19.center_img Under New York state rules, any player that tests positive is immediately withdrawn and must self-isolate for at least 10 days. Most competitors are staying at specific hotels and are not allowed to travel anywhere other than to and from the tournament site and their accommodation. Some players, including Djokovic, have rented private houses that must be guarded 24 hours by security to safeguard the quarantine bubble. Parts of the tennis center grounds were turned into makeshift hospital rooms during the worst of the pandemic in New York in April. Intense cleaning and safety protocols were put in place before the US Open allowed players into the bubble. And the number of support personnel for each competitor is limited, as is the number of players allowed into the locker room at any one time. Players are advised to wear masks when they are not on court and must wash their hands regularly. The absence of defending champion Rafael Nadal and Swiss legend Roger Federer gives Djokovic a prime opportunity to gain ground on his rivals in the chase for the all-time men’s Grand Slam singles title record.
