Novak Djokovic could commit to playing at the US Open after expressing doubts about strict social distancing restrictions placed on players.

Spanish newspaper Marca has reported Djokovic is now considering playing if quarantine laws upon his return to Europe don’t impact the clay season and the French Open.

A week after the US Open ends the Madrid Masters begins, with the Rome Masters seven days later.

Should players be forced to self-quarantine for two weeks after returning from the USA, they would be unable to play in either of those tournaments.

The ATP is now working on a plan to allow players to get around the quarantine issue.

If that comes to fruition, Djokovic has indicated he will commit to Flushing Meadows.
