Nicolas Jarry spoke to the magazine Saturday about what it was the penalty imposed by the ITF for positive doping which resulted in Chile’s participation in the 2019 Madrid Davis Cup: “I would have had to travel to England (to appeal), spend more money and it was not safe at all. Without coronavirus I would have reached the end.”
“It was unfair. I saw the lab and sent a doctor to inspect. Is that negligence? The ITF is the one that believes that I deserve to be 11 months without competing when the life of an athlete is 15 years. They took me out for almost a year“, completed the tennis player.
Jarry will be able to play again on November 19 this year and trying to climb back up in the ATP ranking, in which he reached 38th: “Once three years ago I went from 600 to 100, so I did it before. It will be very difficult, but I know I can. I think that in a year. Dreaming the same I say so. “
For the return to the courts, of which it is still not known where or when it will be, Jarry says that he ended up “changing the entire medical team and now I am also with a new physical trainer. I’m with a 100% new team “.
One of the options for the return was the Challenger of Santiago, But this year’s competition was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic and postponed to 2021, leaving Jarry in search of a tournament to return.
