Previously it was reported that in the nearest future the organizers of the US Open should officially announce the tournament as scheduled.
Now on the way to the tournament was overcome another barrier: we received permission from the Governor of new York Andrew Cuomo.
Myself Cuomo announced in his Twitter:
The @the us open will be held in Queens, NY, without fans from August 31 to September 13.
The USTA will take extraordinary precautions to protect players and staff, including robust testing, additional cleaning, extra locker room space, and dedicated housing & transportation.

Tennis Association USA will take extraordinary security measures to protect the players and the staff. Will be thoroughly testing the service, will create additional space in the locker room, will be allocated to housing and transport”.
However, many top players can refuse to participate in the US Open in 2020 due to a too-strict medical Protocol.
His participation in doubt, the leaders of men’s tennis, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. Simona Halep has already stated that the rest of the season will not act outside of Europe, and Roger Federer will miss the tournament due to injury.
