The tournament will take place in a quarantined setting from Aug. 31-Sept. 13 in New York. The Western & Southern Open, which was relocated from Cincinnati this year, will be held from Aug. 20-28 as a warm-up event for the Grand Slam. Murray, a former world number one who won his U.S. Open title in 2012, also received a wildcard entry into the Western & Southern Open, but said on Monday that players travelling to New York need assurance that they would not face mandatory quarantine after returning to Europe.

Bayern Munich vs Chelsea, Champions League last-16: What time is kick-off, what TV channel is it on and what is our prediction?
What is it? It is the second leg of Chelsea's Champions League last-16 tie against Bayern Munich, almost six months after the first leg at Stamford Bridge. When is it? The match is on Saturday, August 8. What time is kick-off? The game at the Allianz Arena gets under way at 8pm UK time. What TV channel is it on? BT Sport have exclusive coverage of the Champions League and Chelsea fans can watch live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Extra 1. Alternatively, you can bookmark this page and return to follow all the action on our live blog. What is the state of the tie? Bayern Munich ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in London with Serge Gnabry scoring twice and Robert Lewandowski adding the third in a brilliant second-half dissection of their opponents. Bayern secured their eighth consecutive Bundesliga title post-lockdown and are one of the favourites to win the Champions League, having won seven of seven games in the competition this season, scoring 27 and conceding just five. Frank Lampard is adamant Chelsea will take the game seriously, but chances of further progression look close to zero. Chelsea have qualified for next season's Champions League courtesy of finishing fourth in the Premier League but are smarting from losing an FA Cup final against Arsenal last week. What is the team news? Chelsea may have to pad their squad out with some youngsters with as many as seven first-team players absent. Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic limped off at Wembley with hamstring injuries, while Jorginho and Marcos Alonso serve Champions League suspensions. N'Golo Kante was on the bench for the FA Cup final but not deemed fit, when Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Willian also missed out.

Ahead of the tournament starting, Rory McIlroy - a winner in 2014 - admitted it is "easy to lose focus" without the noise and excitement generated by crowds. "Obviously it isn't new to us at this point. We've been back playing on Tour for the last eight or nine weeks or whatever it is," McIlroy said. "I've found myself looking at leaderboards a little more just to see where I am on there and see where other people are. There's no feedback from anywhere else; there's even no scoreboard holders, so you don't even know how the guys in your group are doing, (but) at this point we should all be used to it.

With two new running backs, the Miami Dolphins' ground game will look a lot different in 2020, and that's good. The achievement was a testament to the 37-year-old Fitzpatrick's pluck, but also a reflection of the dismal productivity by Miami's running backs. The Dolphins believe veteran newcomers Jordan Howard and Matt Breida represent a significant upgrade at the position, providing more punch and versatility for an offense that last year averaged 72 yards rushing per game, worst in the NFL since 2006.
