Feel awful for Matteo. To look so good so soon coming back from an injury that took you out for months only to have this happen, really sucks. He was my pick to win it. A tough break for sure, maybe next year his luck will turn around.

Silently, he has been having some bad luck. Several injuries, now this. Broke up with Ajla. It has been a bit topsy turvy, for sure.

Ok, this is getting serious:
Tennis: "There was a Covid epidemic at Roland-Garros and no one talked about it", says Alizé Cornet

The original news is from L'equipe, which is very respected. That link is in French.

Believable. If there was a lot of money on the line most of us would probably not test either.

Sure. I would test myself privately but, if showing no symptoms, I would most likely keep it quiet.

Even if the test came out positive?

How I wish I could say I am a man of integrity and impeccable morals.
But I have never seen 70,000 Euros just to play one match (RG 1r losers' prize), nor I have never dedicated my life to such an endeavor in which playing such a match could be a dream opportunity.
I really would not know what to do if the test came positive AND I were not showing symptoms.

I do understand that. It is a ton of money for sure. I just don't know how I would deal with myself if others started getting sick. Really tough.

To not get into such moral issues the solution is to not test unless there are some serious symptoms (more than coughing or a congested nose).

And don't get me wrong. The clear path would be to take yourself out. But, if asymptomatic, the little bug in your ear telling you "you are surrounded by a lot of very low risk people" would not be completely silent.
It would be a terrible position. But, as Suliso says, the pragmatic solution would be not to test yourself, and only do so if symptoms would develop.

Yeah, just not to know would be the best way to keep it unless you were having symptoms of course.

Yeah... and these 'low risk people' who contract it from you then go on to spread it to their grandmother who's visiting to watch them play, etc. :roll:

The ONLY thing to do if one tests positive is to be honest and upfront about it and pull out and isolate.

Translated from French by Google

"At Roland there was a Covid epidemic, nobody talked about it. In the locker room everyone had it and we didn't say anything (...) I think it's a tacit agreement between us. We're not going to test ourselves to get ourselves into trouble!"

The link to the Cornet article a few posts above (post #843) is difficult to read, as it seems to be a (rather poor) translation.
I found this link to an article about the issue written in proper English...

What she reveals reeks of utter selfishness from the players.

whatever one may feel about this, it certainly highlights the hypocrisy around banning Djokovic..!
