Hamburg (dpa) – Frenchman Benoit Paire, who already tested positive for the corona virus at the US Open in New York, caused a sensation by making further positive tests public at the tennis tournament in Hamburg.
After giving up his first round against Norwegian Casper Ruud at 4: 6, 0: 2 due to exhaustion, Paire said he had tested positive twice in Hamburg, but was allowed to participate in the tournament after another negative test. .
After returning from the US, where he was quarantined at the hotel for days after being banned from the US Open, he tested negative both in France and at the Masters 1000 event in Rome. “I don’t understand anymore,” said Paire. “I’m just tired.”
The 31-year-old Frenchman left it open whether he would participate in the French Open, which starts on Sunday in his home country. If not, he will end his season immediately. “It’s not that funny,” said Paire. Life is not all Netflix and Playstation, the French said in view of the pastime in quarantine.
