Roland-Garros: five players excluded from qualifying due to Covid-19

Five players have been withdrawn from the Roland Garros qualifications, which begin on Monday, because of the Covid-19. Two have tested positive.

Roland-Garros faces the Covid-19. “The management of the Roland-Garros tournament confirms that two qualifying players have tested positive for Covid-19 and three other players are declared” contact cases “of their coach tested positive for Covid-19, it is stated in a press release . In accordance with the health protocol of the tournament, these 5 players were excluded from the table of qualifications which start tomorrow and will remain isolated for 7 days. In total, approximately 900 tests have been carried out since Thursday, September 17. “

After the four names of players announced by Marca (Denis Istomin, Ernesto Escobedo, Pedja Kristin, Bernabé Zapata), a 5th player was withdrawn from the qualifying table. This is the Bosnian Damir Dzumhur (114th world). During his screening, traces of coronavirus would have been detected in his body. This positive control certainly finds its source on the side of the US Open, because it was a distant contact with Benoit Paire in New York. He had to be checked every morning but was not assigned to his room. His trainer Petar Popovic would have tested positive as well.

Players contacted to make the qualifiers

According to our information, the organization of the tournament in recent days has surveyed French players, among others, to alert them to a possible entry into the qualifying table when they were not in the cut initially. First as a precaution, in the middle of the week, and then these last hours after the positive controls, in order to change the picture.

These disappearances from the qualifying table are the delight of a young French player who received a wildcard from the sky this Sunday: Baptiste Crepatte (344th worldwide, 25 years old). He will discover the Parisian Grand Slam.
