No Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal as Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas lead Washington Open field
Only three of the world’s top 10 players have been confirmed on the preliminary Washington Open entry list with Daniil Medvedev and Stefanos Tsitsipas the headline acts.
Following a five-month hiatus, the 2020 ATP Tour is set to resume on August 13 with the hard-court event in Washington D.C.
However, there are still question marks over the North American swing as many of the world’s top players have indicated that they are not ready to travel to the United States following a recent spike in coronavirus cases.
World No 1 Novak Djokovic and world No 2 Rafael Nadal are among those players and they won’t feature in Washington along with world No 3 Dominic Thiem.
