Covid-19: Nishikori pulls out of US Open

Aug 27, 2020 13:21 IST

Japanese tennis star Kei Nishikori has pulled out of this year's US Open despite testing negative for Covid-19. The world number 31 who had tested positive for the deadly virus twice before, feels that returning in a best of 5 long-match setting after such a long break is not smart until he is fully ready to do so. The US Open starts from August 31 and ends on September 13. Nishikori's best showing at the Flushing Meadows was when he ended up as the runners-up in the 2014 edition.
