The plans they had before caving to top players like Djokovic. Limiting the entourage to 1, keeping the players in one hotel etc ect.

With Zverev latest boo-boo, players have clearly shown they can't be trusted not to break social distancing rules. You'll end up with players going out to late-night parties and getting and spreading Coronavirus, if they are not forced to strictly stay in one central location for the duration of the tournament.

USTA should call the bluff of top players who said the original plan was too "extreme". Most of them will show up whatever rules you put in place, either because they need the prize money, or they do not want to lose an opportunity to miss a slam.

They won't. They want the top players there, and it will cost them.

I feel like they almot have no choice now. They need to be seen to be paying attention to events and reacting. Some of these players will end up embarrassing the event and maybe force it to close if they are not strictly monitored and controlled.
