On April 3, as the coronavirus pandemic was just beginning to disrupt the social habits of Americans from coast to coast, the United States Tennis Association said in a statement that "it is in the best interest of society to take a collective pause from playing the sport we love."
Nineteen days later, the USTA has issued a new statement, this one about potentially resuming tennis, given the realities that some areas of the country are beginning to re-open.
"The USTA recognizes that the coronavirus has been affecting different parts of the country in different ways and with different timing," read the statement. "We therefore believe it will be possible for people to return to playing tennis safely in some cities and states sooner than others."
