Daniil Medvedev tests positive for coronavirus

According to Agence France-Presse on Wednesday, Daniil Medvedev of Moscow, Russia, has tested positive for coronavirus. As a result, Medevev will not be participating this week at the Monte Carlo Masters.

Despite not ever winning a Grand Slam singles final, Medvedev is currently ranked second in the world. The only player above Medvedev in the ATP Rankings is Novak Djokovic of Serbia. Like Medvedev, Djokovic has had coronavirus.

As a result of Medvedev’s positive test, Juan Ignacio Llondero of Argentina was able to enter the draw as a lucky loser. What was ridiculous about the draw is that Llondero moved directly into Medvedev’s spot in section four, and got a bye into the second round. There, he was justly hammered by Filip Krajinovic of Serbia, 6-0, 6-3 in straight sets.

Due to the fact Medvedev currently lives in Monaco, he is allowed to self-isolate at home. There have been 2378 cases of coronavirus in Monaco, and 31 deaths.

There are also concerns at this time for the great Rafael Nadal. That is because Nadal had a practice session in Monaco right before Medvedev tested positive according to Riley Morgan of Yahoo! Sports. One needs to question why Nadal is allowed to still compete in Monte Carlo this week even though he came in close contact with Medvedev.

Nadal, who is seeded third, breezed through to the third round after defeating Federico Delbonis of Argentina in the second round, 6-1, 6-2. In round three, Nadal is facing Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria.

Nadal has won a remarkable 11 Monte Carlo Masters men’s singles titles. However, he did not win in 2019. The last Monte Carlo Masters champion was Fabio Fognini of Italy, who beat Dusan Lajovic of Serbia, 6-3, 6-4. The 2020 Monte Carlo Masters was cancelled because of coronavirus.
