Simona worried after player fails virus test at Roland Garros

PARIS: World number two Simona Halep said Monday that she was worried about the coronavirus situation in
Paris after hearing that a female player had tested positive during qualifying at Roland Garros.
“I heard before the match and, of course, it worries me,” said Halep after winning her first Italian Open title after defending champion Karolina Pliskova retired injured while trailing 6-0, 2-1 in the final.
“But I’m sure that measures will take place there, and we will be safe enough to be okay to play and to be safe.
“I don’t know yet because I’m not there. After I get there, I will have a feeling.”
A statement from French Open organisers did not name the player but explained she would quarantine for seven days, adding that five other players suffered the same fate the day before.
World number four Pliskova, who was playing in Rome with her left thigh heavily bandaged, also stressed the need for caution.
“You have to be really careful where you go, and still you don’t know if you can get it or where you can get it and from who. I mean, that’s the situation right now.”
