Game Time: Is it the worst idea to have the US Open right now?

The US Open seems to be all set to start from 31st August (Monday). The fact that it is happening in the country that has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the world, and whose current administration’s handling of the pandemic is severely under question, has not escaped anyone. So in this episode, Gaurav and Mihir ask – is it too risky to have it this soon? Is it selfish? It is really possible to have the tournament without spreading the virus further? And what precautions can be taken so that it doesn’t turn into Djokovic’s Adria Tournament? Listen as they try to answer these questions and reveal why they are skeptical.
