Simona Halep about the positive test for Covid-19: “I feel good. We will get through it together”
The women’s world number two, Simona Halep, has shown that she has tested positive for the coronavirus. Due to the pandemic, the Romanian had decided to forego the US Open this season. However, she made an appearance at Roland Garros.
Although No 2 Simona Halep tested positive for the novel coronavirus, she recovers well from her mild symptoms.
“Hi, everyone! I want to let you know that I tested positive for COVID-19,”
said the 29-year-old Romanian on Twitter on Saturday.
“I’m not only self-isolating at home but also recovering well from mild symptoms.”
Actually, she feels good.
“We will get through it together,”
also said Simona.
Due to health concerns over the pandemic, the former world number one didn’t travel to New York for this year’s US Open Grand Slam.
Halep, who is the reigning Wimbledon champion and won the French Open in 2018, made the trip to Paris for the clay-court Grand Slam. However, she went down to eventual champion Iga Swiatek this month in the fourth round at Roland Garros.
Halep said her 2020 season was over following her French Open defeat, even though the Women’s WTA Tour has a tournament scheduled in Austria from Nov. 9.
