The ATP, which arranges the men’s visit, held a video gathering with players on Wednesday to talk about provisional designs for the other 50% of a season that has been suspended until in any event the finish of July.
“Nothing came out of it,” said Gasquet, who arrived at the last four at Flushing Meadows in 2013.
“Be that as it may, there’s as yet two months to go. It’s not possible for anyone, no doubt.
The (proposed) conditions are troublesome; however, it’s doable. The sky is the limit.” World number one Novak Djokovic a week ago portrayed the severe cleanliness limitations under which the US Open is probably going to be played as “outrageous” and “extremely inconceivable.”
Players would be confined to their inns close to the competition scene with just a single individual from their care staff permitted.
“You show up over yonder, and you go to the lodging, you remain in your residence. There’s no uncertainty about that.
It’s typical, it’s to ensure yourself as well as other people, so you don’t do anything,” said Gasquet, including he most dreaded the appearance of players from areas where the infection is as yet circling at a high rate.
