NHL's COVID protocol-related absences for May 21, 2021

  NHL's COVID protocol-related absences for May 21, 2021 Players in the protocol today are: St. Louis' David Perron and Nathan Walker.Pittsburgh – TBA

After a 2020 that saw one Grand Slam cancelled (Wimbledon) and Roland Garros shifted to the fall, things are back to normal this year — kinda. Back in April, the 2021 French Open was moved one week later with the hope of the shift allowing for more fans to attend.

Now with things about to get underway, all eyes will be on the "King of Clay," Rafael Nadal, as he goes for his 14th title — and fifth consecutive — at Roland Garros. If he wins the tournament, he will break a tie with Roger Federer for most men's Grand Slam titles. The duo is tied at 20.

NHL announces blank COVID protocol-related absences list

  NHL announces blank COVID protocol-related absences list The long-awaited day has finally arrived. When the NHL released it’s COVID Protocol Related Absences list on Monday evening, it contained no names. It is the first time since the list originally debuted at the start of the regular season that the contents has been empty. Granted, the list now only includes the 14 active playoff teams as opposed to all 31 clubs, but it still marks a major achievement in the league’s battle against the Coronavirus. © Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Of course, the final step toward a league-wide clean bill of health actually came with the elimination of the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.

And, now, here's the kicker — he may have to go through Federer to do it. Nadal, the No. 3 seed, could meet Federer, the No. 8 seed, in the semifinals in Paris. But, that's not even the best part. Why? Well, the 39-year-old Federer, who hasn't played much in the last 15 months following two minor knee surgeries, is on a collision course with world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in the quarterfinals. Yep, the "Big Three" are on the same side of the draw.

On the women's side, world No. 1 and 2019 champ Ash Barty back in Paris after skipping last year's tourney due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She'll face some stiff competition with defending champ Iga Swiatek, Coco Gauff, Sofia Kenin and Jennifer Brady all in the same half of the draw. Serena Williams is still looking to make some history of her own — she is one Grand Slam singles title away from tying Margaret Court's record of 24. Williams has won three times at Roland Garros, the last in 2015. She'll see the likes of Bianca Andreescu and Naomi Osaka in her side of the draw.
