Nadal, who won the tournament four times previously, including 2019, will not be competing this year due to Covid-19 concerns. He recently tweeted: "After many thoughts I have decided not to play this year’s US Open. The situation is very complicated worldwide, the COVID-19 cases are increasing, it looks like we still don’t have control of it.".
