The US Open 2020 gets underway on August 31, 2020 for tennis fans everywhere. The tournament this year will be a little different considering that no fans will be in the stands this year and the amount of personnel will also be limited in Flushing, NY onsite.

There are always more than a few personal interest stories and storylines to follow and 2020 is no different in that regard. One person to keep an eye on is Kim Clijsters, who last competed in 2012 and has retired from the sport twice. She returns to the tournament with an unranked status and is sure to be fun to watch battle it out. On the men's side, Novak Djokovic is perfect in 2020 at tour-level matches going 18 for 18.

Will his stream continue at the US Open this year? Be sure to tune in to find out.
