Top 20 ATP Players will apparently refuse to play USO if not exempt from quarantine on return

- After the USO (hard court), the tour will resume in on clay Europe for Rome M1000 and Roland Garros
- Madrid has been officially cancelled after officials asked them not to play it
- Allegedly in a zoom call the top 20 players agreed to withdraw if not exempt from quarantine restrictions
- Rafael Nadal and other high profile European players (Wawrinka, Fognini, Monfils) have already withdrawn, though not all giving Covid as a reason
- Andy Murray (currently ranked outside the top 100) has accepted a wild card to both Cincy and USO

Meanwhile the WTA resumed in Palermo:

- An unknown player pulled out before the tournament after testing positive for Covid 19
- Donna Vekic has admitted she has been dining out which goes against the 'bubble' the tournament said it would make.

(Vekic has since gone out of the tournament and pulled out of Prague)
