Medvedev withdraws from Monte Carlo


Russian Daniel Medvedev, ranked second in the world, withdrew from the Monte Carlo tournament, the second Masters tournament, a thousand points, due to his infection with the Corona virus, according to what the Tennis Professionals Association announced. A detailed statement from the Association stated that “Medvedev was placed in stone, provided that he would receive a medical follow-up by the course doctor and the medical team.”For his part, the Russian commented on his withdrawal, saying: “It is a great disappointment not to play in Monte Carlo. My focus is currently on recovery and I look forward to returning to the stadiums as soon as possible. ”
Medvedev, who is exempt from competing in the first round, discovered that he was infected with the Corona virus on Monday, and he was substituted in the second round, where he was expected to play against the Serbian Philip Krajinovic or the Georgian Nikoluz Basilashvili.
Medvedev reached the semi-finals of the emirate’s tournament in its last edition in 2019, noting that the organizing committee for the tournament had allowed him to stay at his home in Monaco, unlike the rest of the players who had to adhere to more stringent conditions within a health bubble.
The Russian advanced to second place in the ranking of professional players after winning the French Marseille tournament in March 2021, behind the winner in the Australian Open final, the first Grand Slam tournament, Serbian Novak Djokovic. Medvedev hoped his participation in Monte Carlo to compensate for his disappointment in the quarter-finals of the Miami tournament, the first of the 1,000-point Masters tournament, against Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut at the beginning of this month.
