Novak Djokovic has announced that he will play at this year’s US Open.

The World No1’s participation in the event was up in the air, with defending champion Rafael Nadal having already withdrawn amid fears caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

But Djokovic took to social media on Thursday to announce his involvement at the New York Grand Slam, writing on Instagram: “I am happy to confirm that I will participate at @cincytennis and @usopen this year.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

“It was not an easy decision to make with all the obstacles and challenges on many sides, but the prospect of competing again makes me really excited. See you soon New York.”

The US Open is set to take place between 31 August and 13 September.
