New York, Sep 5 (EFE) .- American Sofia Kenin, who this Saturday went to the round of 16 of the US Open, confessed that all the tournament participants miss tennis fans, one of the circumstances of this particular tournament marked by the coronavirus that the players have commented the most.
“I miss the fans a lot. They help me a lot when I am tired,” Kenin said at a press conference after meeting Tunisian Ons Jabeur.
“Of course, we all miss the fans. It’s all very different,” added the second seeded. “But there is nothing we can do,” he said.
Kenin also opined that the players should be “very grateful” that the US Open has been held, and opined that everyone is playing “very good tennis.”
However, he revealed that, apart from the public, what he misses most from the US Open of other years, in which the participants were not confined in the bubble that the US Tennis Association (USTA, its acronym in English), is the city of New York.
“Staying at the JW Marriot, having Central Park right in front of you, walking down Fifth Avenue. I can’t shop at Tiffany or Cartier. That’s frustrating because I love the city and it’s where I want to live,” he revealed.
