US Open tennis center converted to coronavirus hospital

A training facility at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in Queens, N.Y. is being converted into a 350-bed facility to fight the coronavirus outbreak, according to The Wall Street Journal’s Katie Honan.  

The Billie Jean King Tennis Center is one of the stadiums used for the US Open, held in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park each August. Construction to alter the facility could begin on Tuesday, per Honan. 

The United States Tennis Association suspended all tournaments indefinitely on March 13. The French Open has been postponed until September, but there has been no announcement on a delay for the 2020 US Open.
