The storm clouds continue to gather over the 2020 US Open with former world No 1 Angelique Kerber saying “I don’t think anyone wants to get in a plane and fly to New York”.

Then there is Andy Murray’s former trainer Dani Vallverdu who feels that not only the US Open, but all the other tournaments in America are unlikely to go ahead.

Staying with Andy Murray, the former Wimbledon champion has lamented the fact that he missed out on competing at The All England Club this year as “he is getting old for a tennis player”.

Back to the US Open and Dominic Thiem insists players won’t be able to survive with just one entourage member, saying they need “three or four”.

And in case you missed it on Monday, read Kevin Palmer’s exclusive interview with Patrick Mouratoglou on the Ultimate Tennis Showdown.

What’s in the news

In The Tennis Podcast, Judy Murray reveals that she felt unable to celebrate son Andy Murray’s 2013 Wimbledon title success with him after years of being branded a “pushing mum”.

Heather Watson and Harriet Dart are the latest players to withdraw from the Progress Tour Women’s Championships which means none of Great Britain’s top five players will feature, reports the Daily Mail.

After reports that they are “at an early stage” of preparing for a stock exchange listing next year, the Roger Federer-backed sports shoe maker On has come out and denied it.

“The speculation in the Swiss Sunday papers is false. On has no plans for an IPO next year,” Reuters quotes On co-founder David Allemann as saying.

“As a private company, we are fully concentrated on reaching even more runners around the world with our Swiss technology.”
