Sports news:During qualifying of the US Open 2017 in an experiment will be tested by several significant innovations.

As reported by the Sun-Gazzette, the organizers of the US Open decided to test at the upcoming qualifying tournament several major innovations.

The clock on the scoreboard during matches will measure the time that passes between draws during the game, how long does the pre-match warm-up and pauses between games and sets.

Another significant change is that players will be allowed to communicate with their coaches during the match between draws.

Such innovations will be tested in an experiment. Later a decision will be made about whether to impose these innovations on a continuous basis and during the matches of the main draw of the tournament starting in 2018 .
