Defending champion Rafael Nadal has pulled out of the US Open citing concerns over coronavirus. The four-time winner at Flushing Meadows does not want to travel to the United States while Covid-19 cases are on the rise.
“After many thoughts I have decided not to play this year’s US Open. The situation is very complicated worldwide, the COVID-19 cases are increasing, it looks like we still don’t have control of it,” Nadal wrote on Instagram. “This is a decision I never wanted to take but I have decided to follow my heart this time and for the time being I rather not travel.”
Nadal, ranked second in the world, is only one major title away from tying Roger Federer’s record 20 grand slam singles titles. Federer had previously announced he would not be playing for the remainder of the season. Nadal could tie the record next month at the French Open where he is the defending champion and has won 12 titles overall.
The United States Tennis Association confirmed last week that the US Open would go ahead on August 31.
Today is former US President Barack Obama’s 59th birthday so as a present, he’s been made Morning Man.
Like any president, Obama had his detractors. I’m not one of them.
I am confident history will judge this man as one of the greatest presidents in history and I am personally eternally grateful that during his time in office, he eventually become such a staunch supporter of LGBT equality. His speech in the Rose Garden on the morning the Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legal in every state made me weep.
I’ll never, ever forget it or all he has done for people like me.

Sam Pancake is using his immense talent to help get us through the pandemic and I am forever grateful.
The top video is Sam’s latest scene from Postcards From the Edge in which he once again inhabits both the characters of Doris Mann (Shirley MacLaine) and Suzanne Vale (Meryl Streep).
In the scene, a wine drinking Doris confronts Suzanne who comes home very late from a date and all kinds of things come out. My favorite line comes from Suzanne who after her mother claims she only drinks socially replies: “I take acid socially.”
I’ve included two of Sam’s earlier scenes from Postcards which are just as good.
