© Reuters US Open champion Bianca Andreescu will not defend her title in New York, she confirmed in a statement. The Canadian is another leading tennis player who will not take part in the Grand Slam tournament, but the reason is not related to the coronavirus and anti-epidemic measures in the United States.The break in the season caused by COVID-19 did not allow Andrescu to return to his optimal shape after a knee injury. The Canadian was injured in the WTA finals last October.“I had to make a difficult decision, but I’m still not in optimal shape. I prefer to build up a rhythm to make sure I can play at a high level again,” said Andresque. Ashley Barty, the world champion, will not take part in the tournament in New York, which starts on August 31. Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Nick Kirios will not take part in the men’s competition.However, the world №1 Novak Djokovic announced that he will play. Until recently, the Serbian was unsure about the tournament in New York. In the summer, Djokovic became infected with COVID-19 after the Adria Tour demonstration races he organized.“I am aware that things will be complicated because of the observance of the protocols and all the measures that have been taken to protect the health of the tennis players and the staff in New York. However, I trained hard, I am in shape and I have adapted to the new conditions. all the tests to make sure I’m fully recovered and I’m back on the court with the sole desire to show my best, “Djokovic said.
Sen. Chad Barefoot (R-Wake) and Rep. Craig Horn (R-Union) on Tuesday filed Senate Bill 252 and House Bill 339 to establish the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program. Students participating in the North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program will receive up to $8,250 per year in forgivable loans if they commit to teach in a STEM or a special needs subject area in North Carolina’s Public Schools. The bill also allows teaching fellows recipients that go on to teach in a low-performing school to have their loans forgiven faster.Here are links to view the billsSenate Bill 252: http://www.ncleg.net/gascripts/BillLookUp/BillLookUp.pl?Session=2017&BillID=S252House Bill 339: http://www.ncleg.net/gascripts/BillLookUp/BillLookUp.pl?Session=2017&BillID=H339
