Rublev tennis player infected with Covid-19 – Modalities

Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev, fifth in the world ranking, is infected with the coronavirus, which makes his participation in the Australian Open, the first ‘Grand Slam’ tournament of the season, in doubt.

“I’m currently in Barcelona and unfortunately I tested positive for covid-19. I put myself in isolation and respected all protocols regarding the supervision of doctors,” wrote the Russian on his Twitter account.

Rublev ensured that he was fully vaccinated, as he was preparing for the ATP Cup (January 1st to 9th) and for the Australian Open (17th to 30th).

“Now I need to recover and I’ll only go to Melbourne when it’s safe for everyone,” he said.

Canadian Denis Shapovalov, 14th in the world, had also announced on Sunday that he had tested positive for SARS-CoV2, which causes covid-19, after his arrival in Sydney, where he will dispute the ATP Cup.

The two tennis players had faced each other last week in Abu Dhabi, in an exhibition tournament, which also included the Spaniard Rafael Nadal, the Swiss Belinda Bencic, the Tunisian Ons Jabeur and the British Emma Raducanu, tennis players who also tested positive for the coronavirus .
