Denis Shapovalov tests positive for COVID-19 on arrival for ATP Cup in Sydney

The
22-year-old
is
one
of
the
first
overseas
players
to
arrive
in
Australia
and
is
part
of
Canada’s
team
for
the
team-based
tournament
in
Sydney
from
January
1-9,
ahead
of
the
Australian
Open
at
Melbourne
starting
on
January
17.

Shapovalov
played
last
week
at
the
World
Tennis
Championship
exhibition
event
in
Abu
Dhabi,
where
he
beat
Rafael
Nadal
in
the
third-place
playoff
match.
Nadal
also
tested
positive
for
the
coronavirus
after
playing
at
the
tournament,
as
did
Tokyo
Olympic
gold
medalist
Belinda
Bencic
and
Tunisian
Ons
Jabeur.

Former
world
No.10
Shapovalov
said
on
social
media
he
is
in
isolation
and
experiencing
only
minor
symptoms.
“Hi
everyone,
just
wanted
to
update
you
that
upon
my
arrival
in
Sydney,
I
tested
positive
for
COVID,”
Shapovalov
said.

“I
am
following
all
protocols
including
isolation
and
letting
the
people
who
I’ve
been
in
contact
with
know.
“Right
now
I
am
experiencing
minor
symptoms
and
look
forward
to
getting
back
on
the
court
when
it
safe
to
do
so.”

All
players
have
to
return
negative
tests
72
hours
before
flying
to
Australia,
as
well
as
undergo
testing
once
after
arriving
in
the
country
and
isolate
whilst
awaiting
results.
