Reigning Wimbledon champion Simona Halep said on Sunday she had not yet decided whether to play at the US Open but added she dreaded “tough conditions” posed by the journey.
“I haven’t made the final decision yet,” said the 28-year-old Romanian, who will be playing a WTA tournament on a clay court in Prague next week.
“The travelling from Europe is a little bit tough with changing flights – we don’t have straight flights – so it’s going to be tough for me personally, mentally,” she told a video conference.
“I don’t want to put myself into that stress. As I said I haven’t decided yet, but the conditions are tough for me at this moment.”
