The competition is typically held in Cincinnati, however due to the coronavirus pandemic will now be played in NY at the website of the United States Open, which starts 3 days after the finals.

"I love both events so it was a hard decision", she said. And that puts the U.S. Open really in doubt.

The 24-year-old Australian added that she would make a decision on the French Open and the surrounding Women's Tennis Association (WTA) European tournaments in the coming weeks.

Mouratoglou, the coach of 23-time Grand Slam champion Williams, says just because the former world No. 1 is in the United States right now doesn't mean that she would be able to go to Europe after the US Open and avoid a mandatory quarantine. The Citi Open in Washington, scheduled for August 14, was canceled but the US Open organizers plan to proceed with the event as initially scheduled from August 31 - September 13.

The virus, which first emerged in China, has already killed at least 670,000 people and battered the global economy. Nationwide lockdown changes which were due to take effect as of tomorrow have been scrapped with hours to spare.

The Western & Southern Open, which is normally held in Mason, Ohio, will serve as a tune-up tournament for the U.S, Open and also be held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in NY this year, organizers said on July 29.

Former champions Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal and Serena Williams have all entered next month's Western & Southern Open in NY, which will serve as a tune-up for the US Open, tournament organisers said on Wednesday. "If the USTA (United States Tennis Association) is able to give proper answers to those questions, and I understand that it's hard, maybe the U.S".

World No.3 Karolina Pliskova, who won the event in 2016, is the highest-ranked player on the women's side that will feature 39 of the top 53 players in the world.

Williams has confirmed she will play at the U.S. Open and will also headline the inaugural Top Seed Open in Lexington, which will serve as a warm-up for the hardcourt Grand Slam.

"If there is a quarantine it will mean that players can not play Madrid and Rome", Frenchman Mouratoglou told Reuters.
