Tennis action heads to the United States once again as players make their way to compete in the Cincinnati Open.
Novak Djokovic and Alexander Zverev are among the notable absentees this time around. While the former is unable to compete due to the vaccine mandate in place, the latter is recovering from an injury.
Rafael Nadal, meanwhile, is set to make his comeback. The Spaniard suffered an abdominal tear at Wimbledon last month, which has kept him on the sidelines ever since. Daniil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Carlos Alcaraz, three of the most consistent players this season, suffered early exits from the Canadian Open and will be eager to perform much better this week.
The 2022 Cincinnati Open features a packed draw with plenty of exciting matches in store right from the start. Here’s all the information you need to know about the tournament:
