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.
Y después de 50 días de confinamiento me pregunto si todo esto ha tenido sentido, espero que si, para salvar vidas..
espero después de todo el apoyo que hemos dado al gobierno cuando acabe todo esto nos den explicaciones de las de verdad, no la verdad que quieren que creamos!! — Albert Costa (@albertcostilla) May 1, 2020
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.
