Serena Williams Confirms She's Playing in US Open 2020

We got word that the 2020 US Open tennis championship would be happening this year – with major precautions – and now, Serena Williams is confirming she will compete!

“So this announcement has been on my mind all day, but ultimately I really cannot wait to return in New York and play the U.S. Open 2020,” Serena said in a video. “I feel like the USTA is going to do a really good job of ensuring everything is amazing and everything is perfect and everyone is safe. It’s going to be exciting. It’s been over six months since a lot of us have played professional tennis.”

“I’ll certainly miss the fans, don’t get me wrong, just being out there and that New York crowd and hear everyone cheer,” Serena added, noting that they will be playing to empty stadiums.. “I’ll really miss that and getting me through some of those tough matches. But, this is crazy. I’m excited.”
