In a taped video message revealed Wednesday by the USTA, Serena Williams confirmed that she will play in the 2020 U.S Open.
“I really cannot wait to return in New York and play the US Open 2020,” said Williams. “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 hearing everyone cheer,” the six-time US Open champion said. “I’ll really miss that getting me through some of those tough matches. This is crazy. I’m excited.”
