Canadian tennis star Denis Shapovalov appears to have recovered from COVID-19. Shapovalov tested positive for COVID-19 upon his arrival to Australia. Shapovalov tested positive on Christmas and he appears to have returned a negative test five days later.
"Hi everyone, just wanted to update you that upon my arrival to Sydney, I tested positive for COVID.
I'm following all protocols, including isolation and letting the people who I've been in contact with know. Right know I'm experience minor symptoms and look forward to getting back on the court, when it is safe to do so. Thank you in advance for your support and wish you all a safe and hally holiday," Shapovalov announced on December 25.
Shapovalov, Rafael Nadal tested positive after clashing
Shapovalov beat Nadal in the match for the third place at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship. After returning home from Abu Dhabi, Nadal tested positive for COVID-19.
"On my return home after playing the Abu Dhabi tournament, I have tested positive for Covid in the PCR test that was performed on me when I arrived in Spain," Nadal announced after returning to Spain. "Both in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi we passed controls every two days and all were negative, the last being on Friday and having the results on Saturday.
"I am having some unpleasant moments but I hope that I will improve little by little. I am now homebound and have reported the result to those who have been in contact with me. "As a consequence of the situation, I have to have total flexibility with my calendar and I will analyse my options depending on my evolution.
"I will keep you informed of any decisions about my future tournaments! Thank you all in advance for your support and understanding." Like Shapovalov, Nadal also tested negative in a few days and left the isolation.
