Tennis begins in New York's 'bubble'

Starting this Thursday, the qualifying rounds of the qualifying phase of the Western and Southern Open will be played, which begins this Friday in New York as a prelude to the US Open.

This Thursday the official competition in men's tennis returns on the ATP Tour with the start of the previous phases of the Western & Southern Open, the Cincinnati Masters 1,000, which this year will be held in New York to avoid possible infections due to the threat of the coronavirus pandemic.

Thus begins the competition in the 'bubble' of New York, where tennis players who compete in the Western & Southern Open and the US Open (August 31 - September 13) must follow very strict rules in the 'bubble' to avoid any risk of contagion by coronavirus.

Up to a total of 48 men and 48 women will fight during this Thursday and this Friday for one of the 12 places in the men's and women's final draw of the tournament, which will begin this Friday and will be held until the next day 28.

Five Spanish tennis players begin their career in the preliminary phase this Thursday in search of a place in the final table of the tournament. The Valencian Pedro Martínez will face the American Steve Johnson, the Mallorcan Jaume Munar will face the Argentine Federico Delbonis and the Malaga Alejandro Davidovich will face the Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis. In the women's preview, Aliona Bolsava will face the Swiss Jill Teichmann, while Paula Badosa will play the American Francesca di Lorenzo. The official competition arrives this Thursday in the 'bubble' of New York.
