(ANSA) – ROME, DEC 25 – Canadian tennis player Denis Shapovalov has announced on social media that he is positive about Covid-19. A discovery made upon his arrival in Sydney, where he intended to prepare to participate in the ATP Cup and the Australian Open.

The number 14 in the world is a veteran tournament-exhibition in Abu Dhabi, where he also faced Rafa Nadal, who tested positive five days ago. The same fate suffered by two players involved in the Mubadala world tennis championship, the Swiss Belinda Bencic and the Tunisian Ons Jabeur.

“I am respecting all the protocols and I am currently in solitary confinement – explained Shapovalov -. At the moment I have mild symptoms and I can’t wait to get back on the field, when it will be possible to do it safely”. It is unlikely that he will be able to be on the pitch for the ATP Cup, which will start in a week. (HANDLE).
