Is it just me or is it insane US Open is still planning to go ahead? 🤔 Players testing positive on COVID19 🙈 So basicly if 1 person tests positive at the US Open , everyone needs to quarantaine for 2 weeks right? Which means they only THEN cancel the tournament or what? 🤔— Kirsten Flipkens (@FlipperKF) June 25, 2020
