US Open: Mladenovic and Babos excluded from women’s doubles tournament –

France’s Kristina Mladenovic and her doubles partner Hungarian Timea Babos have been disqualified from the US Open women’s doubles draw, following a decision by local health authorities, the American Federation (USTA) announced on Saturday.

This decision is based on the fact that Mladenovic is one of the players who worked with Benoît Paire tested positive for coronavirus and excluded from the tournament a week ago. As such, she must “remain in quarantine, in her room,” said the instance in a statement in which she explained that it was the county of Nassau which ordered it.

“Public health officials in Nassau County, New York, have issued quarantine advisories for anyone who has been in prolonged close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19,” is it indicated.

“As the players reside in Nassau County, the quarantine notices prevent these people from going to the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York”, adds the USTA, specifying that it is required to comply with the guidelines at the level of New York State, New York City and Nassau County.
