World No. 5 Daniil Medvedev, of Russia, says he plans to go to Monaco after the cancelation of tennis tournaments for the next 6 weeks due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The US Open finalist Medvedev was speaking to the GoTennis.Ru website and commented about his plans, I'm going back to Monaco now.
There, if I looked correctly, there was only one confirmed case of a coronavirus, and that was before I flew away. I think it's safe there." The Russian added that he had no idea about the status of events beyond what was made publicly available by the ATP Tour.
"I do not influence these decisions and it is not known how long this will continue, what will happen in the world, so I don’t have even the slightest assumptions about this. Naturally, the most important thing is to stay healthy, this is the main priority."
Medvedev added that the ATP Tour has given them information about what precautions to take and that the most important thing is for everyone to remain healthy. "Naturally, like all media give. All the same, it all comes down to not shaking hands with anyone and washing hands more often.
It is clear that there is more, but this is the most important thing. The most important thing is that all loved ones be healthy, so fewer people get this virus. Let’s hope that the situation will be better, because all measures for this seem to be taken."
