Tennis came to a complete halt last March due to the coronavirus pandemic, like all other sports, and will finally return this week with a great tournament. We tell you when it is and where you can see the Cincinnati Masters 1000, the first major tournament in the last five months.
In recent weeks there have been some tournaments, especially friendly, in different parts of the world, but the big ones return to the competition in Cincinnati in what it will be the litmus test for the tennis world with the coronavirus still present.
This will be the Cincinnati Masters 1000 in the new normal
Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will be the big claims in the American tournament that begins next Monday, August 17. Rafa Nadal will not be present, who does not yet feel the confidence and security necessary to play for the coronavirus, even more so as the situation is in the United States.
One of the incentives, in addition to the return of tennis itself, is the return to the slopes of Andy Murray after seven months of absence due to a back injury that made him undergo surgery. The Briton has taken advantage of the confinement to get ready and will play his first game on Monday against the Frenchman Richard Gasquet.
