Novak Djokovic joins Rafael Nadal in casting doubt over US Open appearance | Tennis | Sport

“Like everyone, we are going through economic difficulties. Personally, I don’t have that kind of pressure that the others feel and of course I understand them because vast majority need to play now and earn money.

“I salute to the efforts being made to hold tournaments, especially in the USA and in Europe, despite this big crisis, but there is a limit to everything.”

Djokovic’s comments come after he appeared to signal his intention to skip the US Open by confirming his participation in the Madrid Masters.

The Masters 1000 event in Spain is set to start on September 14, one day after the men’s singles final.
