After testing positive for COVID-19, Daniil Medvedev has been placed in quarantine and isolated. The World No. 2 tested positive on Monday and therefore had to withdraw from the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters draw, where he has been replaced by lucky loser Juan Ignacio Londero.
“I am very disappointed not to be able to play my home town tournament,” said Medvedev. “My goal now is to look forward and I do hope to get back on the Tour as soon as possible.”
The Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters has lost one of its top seeds. However, the main draw remains highly competitive.
The COVID-19 protocol set up by the ATP, in accordance with Monegasque and French authorities remains very strict. Since 2 April, 1300 tests have been conducted at two different test centres. One centre is based in the town and the other is located at the Monte-Carlo Bay for players and their entourages.
