Three-time cham­pion No­vak Djokovic is the only mem­ber of the “Big Three” in the field for the 2020 U.S. Open.

Roger Federer said pre­vi­ously he will miss the Aug. 31-Sept. 13 tour­na­ment in New York while re­cov­er­ing from knee surgery, while Rafael Nadal said Tues­day he is skip­ping the Grand Slam event due to the on­go­ing COVID-19 pan­demic.

The U.S. Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced the en­try list for the tour­na­ment on Tues­day.

Djokovic, who won U.S. Open sin­gles ti­tles in 2011, 2015 and 2018, is at­tempt­ing to win his 18th Grand Slam. The 33-year-old Ser­bian is ranked No. 1 in the world and was rid­ing an 18-match un­beaten streak when the ATP Tour was sus­pended due to the coro­n­avirus in March.
