Former World No. 1 tennis player Andy Roddick posted an update on Twitter that he personally has a family member who has the novel coronavirus but cannot be tested. The American star tweeted on Sunday, "I personally know people who have it.
I personally have a family member who has it but can’t be tested. He/she has self quarantined. We know a lot of people who have it if it’s only 3,000 total. Would be a statistical anomaly. We are behind. It’s around us.
Let’s just go home" Roddick was alluding to the fact that the actual number of cases in the United States could be much more than those officially reported and also says that testing is not available to all yet. The former US Open champion did not mention which member of his family he was referring to and whether it was his immediate or extended family.
37 year old Roddick became world No. 1 shortly after he won the title at the 2003 US Open, defeating French Open champion Juan Carlos Ferrero in the final and overtaking him as World No. 1. He also reached four other Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon in 2004, 2005, and 2009, and the US Open in 2006), losing to Roger Federer in each of them.
Roddick retired after the 2012 US Open.
