North American tennis player Dennis Kudla tested positive but the result was known only during qualification.
Denis Kudla became aware of the transition to the new coronovirus during the game against Morocco Elliot Bencreath, who won the first qualifying round for the Australian Open in Doha.
The referee of the meeting decided to end the meeting, with Kudla leading 6-4 and 6-3, as he had already started when the organization received the test result against North America, which ranked in the world rankings Was 114th.
221-year-old French Moroccan Elliot Bencreath in the world reported his qualification for the second round of qualifying via his Instagram account, which is what happened.
“The idea of tests is to get information in advance, not to risk other people. Inexplicably, we can play before getting results, because they are taking longer than expected,” Benkethritt wrote.
Kudla is the second tennis player sent to imprisonment during this phase of the first Grand Slam of the year, which takes place in Qatar after Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina.
