Djokovic gave only some details of the measures proposed to reduce the risk of an infection which rampaged through NY, which is scheduled to host the American tennis grand slam at Flushing Meadows from Aug 31.
Speaking to Prva TV in his home country, he said "we would not have access to Manhattan, we would have to sleep in hotels at the airport, to be tested two or three times per week".
Djokovic said that the protocols set up, including only being allowed one person with him on site, are "extreme" while Nadal now has no inclination to travel for tournaments.
The 17-time Grand Slam champion added: "I had a telephone call with the leaders of world tennis, there were talks about the continuation of the season, mostly about the US Open due in late August, but it is not known whether it will be held".
Novak Djokovic, of Serbia, is fretting about "harsh" restrictions on players' entourages and other "extreme" changes proposed for the U.S. Open, if it is played starting in August.
World No. 2 Rafael Nadal of Spain had also said he would not travel to the U.S.in the present circumstances.
While the tennis world awaits a decision, which could come as soon as next week, from the U.S. Tennis Association's board about whether to hold the Grand Slam tournament in NY amid the coronavirus pandemic - and if so, with what precautions - there are plenty of questions surrounding the event.
"It just isn't all about money, there is health involved here but when it is safe enough, having just a coach is not adequate reason perhaps not to be going to a tournament in my opinion".
The U.S. Open has not publicly released its protocols. In an Instagram Live chat, he told former pro Gustavo Kuerten that "for me, completely empty [stadiums] when playing big tournaments is very difficult". Nadal said this week.
Britain's Dan Evans believes Novak Djokovic's concerns about players having only one member of their support staff at the U.S. Open does not apply to the majority of the field and compromises should be made when action resumes.
"We need to be responsible, we need to be sure that the situation is safe enough, and then of course try to come back to our tour when the things are clear". His argument there is not really valid for the rest of the draw apart from the real top guys.
British tennis player Dan Evans, ranked 28th in the world, told the BBC that not many players have a travelling party to tournaments.
The U.S. now has over 1.89 million confirmed cases and the death toll has reached 109,000.
