According to a news report by the Selenic Express, there are plans to hold the US Open on the moon. As there are no cases of Covid-19 on the moon and no travel restrictions, it is a neat solution, and one that fits with President Trump's stated ambitions to put Americans back on the moon.

Critics have pointed to the moon's low gravity as being an issue, but many people think that the bounce will be no higher than it has been at Flushing Meadows. Moreover, many people, including President Trump, have begun to question whether gravity exists and is not just an elaborate hoax concocted by well-known English conman Isaac Newton.

The event will be available to watch live for anyone living on the right half of the Earth who owns a pair of ultra-super-duper-powerful binoculars.

It's thought that the new venue will favour Rafael Nadal with his long experience in moonballing, although it may also benefit Fabio Fognini and other players who are reportedly wired to the moon.

The move follows suggestions that the French Open will be played on the International Space Station, while Wimbledon is also a possibility if scientists can successfully grow grass on an asteroid.

Great news for tennis fans.

Let's face it: with such playing conditions the Fisherman has it in the pocket.
Alternatively they might ponder moving it to asteroid Rafael Nadal.

This is a nonsense idea. How are they going to install/build stadiums, hotels, water supplies, electricity supplies etc. In time?

also when people start arriving on the moon they will be taking the virus with them anyway. The whole idea is a nonstarter for me.

the gravity on the moon is about 1/6th of what it is on earth by the way. You just can’t play tennis in those conditions.

Yes, tennis courts will be installed in Armstrong crater, of course (sorry, there is no Ashe crater)
They will have to shorten the tournament somewhat to fit it between sunrise and sunset around the full moon on 2 September, but then they will be able to play 24 hours a day without artificial light and without any risk for rain. Ok, it will be a bit hot outside there, but who cares?

In other news the french open managers stated that if necessary they are making arrangements , looking into holding the 2020 edition "at any costs in the planet Mars" argumenting "clay must be good up there, look how red it is, yeah we are putting all our best to carry it out" ... asked about the reasoning behind this decision and the logistics they said "hey, we talked to Mr . POTUS and he said it could be done"... "Nuff said", guy forget was quoted as he left the room.
