Osaka confirms US Open attendance, Barty pulls out
Jul 30, 2020
Former champion Naomi Osaka has confirmed that she will play in next month’s US tennis Open in New York.
Her management team denied reports that she could skip the tournament next month, due to COVID-19 concerns.
But one definite no-show is reigning world no. 1 Ashleigh Barty, who pulled out amid coronavirus fears.
This will be the first time since 2010 that the US Open is being held without the top women's singles player.
Chelsea have reportedly approached representatives of Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, about a possible move to Stamford Bridge.
Ter Stegen's future at Barca is said to be in doubt, after he was told to accept a pay cut if he wants to stay at the Camp Nou.
Meanwhile Chelsea are looking to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga over his inconsistent form this season.
Besides Ter Stegen, the Blues are also eyeing Ajax's Andre Onana and Man United's Dean Henderson.
