‘Disgusting discrimination’: Dylan Alcott blasts US Open over omission

  • Wheelchair tennis left out of 2020 grand slam
  • ‘Players weren’t consulted,’ says two time champion

Australia’s Dylan Alcott has slammed US Open tennis organisers, accusing them of “disgusting discrimination” for planning this year’s coronavirus-compromised grand slam tournament without wheelchair tennis.

A winner of 10 grand slam wheelchair tennis singles titles, including two US Opens, Alcott vented on Twitter after it was officially announced the 2020 US Open would go ahead in New York in its scheduled 31 August to 13 September dates but with some big changes and under strict bio-security measures.
