Albert Costa: Government Should Give Them Real Explanation of Pandemic

Former French Open champion Albert Costa says he hopes the Spanish government will provide the proper explanation behind the current pandemic after the entire ordeal is over. In a post on his social media account, the 2002 French Open champion says, "After 50 days of confinement I wonder if all this has made sense, I hope so..

to save lives ... I hope after all the support that we have given to the government when all this is over they give us real explanations, not the ones they really want us to believe !!"

Costa was among the top clay courters of his time.

As a junior, he won the French Open and the Orange Bowl. He won the Tennis Masters Series event in Hamburg in 1998 and captured the bronze medal with Alex Corretja in the men's doubles at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney.

Costa won the French Open final in 2002 with a win over fellow Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero 6–1, 6–0, 4–6, 6–3, to claim his first and only Grand Slam title. The win took him to a career-high ranking of No.

6 in 2002. In 2008, he became Spain's Davis Cup captain and became one of the most successful Spanish Davis Cup captains as he led Spain to two Davis Cup titles in 2009 and 2011.
