Daniil Medvedev ‘making no assumptions’ over COVID-19 and return of ATP Tour tennis
Daniil Medvedev says he will try to see out the COVID-19 crisis in Monaco, adding that it’s important to maintain a sense of perspective on it.
The world number five, like the other players on both the ATP and WTA Tours, is in limbo with multiple tournaments cancelled and more to come should the spread of the virus not slow in the coming weeks.
“I’m going back to Monaco now,” Medvedev told GoTennis.Ru.
“There, if I looked correctly, there was only one confirmed case of a coronavirus, and that was before I flew away. I think it’s safe there.
“I do not influence these decisions and it is not known how long this will continue, what will happen in the world.
“So I don’t have even the slightest assumptions about this. Naturally, the most important thing is to stay healthy, this is the main priority.
“It all comes down to not shaking hands with anyone and washing hands more often.
“The most important thing is that all loved ones be healthy, so fewer people get this virus.
“Let’s hope that the situation will be better, because all measures for this seem to be taken.”
The ATP has cancelled all tournaments for the next six weeks due to the COVID-19 global crisis.
