The Open begins with a roof but without 34-year-old #RogerFederer, who won’t play the Open for the first time since 1999 as he rehabs from knee surgery.
Defending champion #NovakDjokovic and #RafaelNadal are nursing wrist injuries. #Nadal, who turned 30, missed the #FrenchOpen and #Wimbledon due to his wrist. At least second-seeded #AndyMurray seems healthy enough — getting buzz as the guy to beat when the Open kicks off Monday. It might well be the perfect time for the so-called “next generation” to rule the 2016 #USOpen.
