World number two Simona Halep tested positive for the novel Coronavirus and is recovering from her mild symptoms. The 29-year-old Romanian said on Twitter on Saturday, “Hi everyone, I want to tell you that I tested positive for COVID-19.” “I am self-isolated at home and recovering from mild symptoms.
“I feel good… we’ll get through this.”
The former world number one did not travel to New York for this year’s US Open Grand Slam due to health concerns over the epidemic.
Hallep, who won the French Open in 2018 and is the Wimbledon champion, traveled to Paris for the Clécourt Grand Slam, but went on to the eventual champion Iga Svotek in the fourth round at Roland Garros this month.
The Women’s WTA Tour is scheduled to take place in Austria from November 9, but Halep said her 2020 season ended after the French Open defeat.
