Following a comfortable win over Argentine qualifier Federico Delbonis, Rafael Nadal explained that he was not worried about the COVID-19 infection because he was never close to Medvedev,
“I was not worried because I practised with him, but I was never close to him. Honestly, no. Of course, when these kinds of stuff happen, it is not good. But I felt sorry for him(Medvedev) more than for me because, well, everything can happen, of course, yes,” Nadal said in the post-match interview.
Spaniard continued, “I mean, as much as I know about the way that you can be infected was not the way that I was supposed to be infected practising with Daniil because I have never been in touch with him, never have been closer than four meters, something like that. Just at the end to say thanks for one second. Anything can happen, of course.”
