One never knows what to expect in the current virus pandemic. Danger lurks all around and the French Open is no exception. The US open runner up played his match complaining that he had COVID symptoms. He was not wearing a mask coming into the match. However, he complained he had a fever, was ill and was finding it difficult to breathe. Medical staff at the open intervened and handed him a nasal spray. He used that in both nostrils. The will to play was strong and he later admitted he shouldn’t have played. He also informed that both his parents had COVID 19 and could not attend the match with him.
It is amazing the mindset that keeps people going no matter the circumstances. It is admirable to be so determined. However, it is not advisable to be a danger to others even with the remotest chance of doing so. He later announced he was tested and results were negative.
