Tennys Sandgren had a fantastic start of the season after reaching the quarters at the Australian Open. The American was eager to keep up for the rest of the year and the Sunshine Double in “his” US would have been a fantastic opportunity, but the Coronavirus stopped his ambitions.
Talking to the New York Times, Tennys saluted the decision of halting the competitions to comment:
“Does gathering for sports events really matter compared to flooding the health care system? Obviously not. People just have to understand that and be OK with taking one for the team in all walks of life.”
No clay and no Roland Garros?
Sandgren is not very optimistic about a quick restart of the competitions and he believes that the all clay-court season could be stopped. He commented: “I would not be surprised if we were not back out there until the grass.”
The Roland Garros organization has already stated that they have all the intention to stage the event even if they are well aware that it could be difficult.
