Adriano Panatta, Former tennis player, winner of Roland Garros in 1976, spoke with the Italian media and Il Foglio.
He supported the decision of the tennis players who will not be going to New York due to the pandemic.
Also, he shed light on that after so many months of inactivity, he must return calm to avoid all kinds of injuries. “Going to the US Open this year is crazy,” he said.
Since approval that US Open will be played, almost one tennis player per day confirmed that they will not be playing.
