Benoit Paire (46th in the world) announced through his twitter that he tested positive for coronavirus and his presence in the Australian Open, which will begin on January 17.
“My name is Benoit paire and for the 250th time I tested positive for covid,” the charismatic Frenchman announced. “I’m sick of you covid” and recalled the constant quarantines that had to go through since the restart of the circuit in August 2020.
Paire is one of the players whose performance has dropped considerably since the onset of the pandemic. His presence (or absence) at the Australian Open will become clearer in the coming days.
