Spanish tennis player Roberto Bautista-Agut withdrew from Wimbledon due to the coronavirus. He wrote about this on his Instagram (the owner of the social network, Meta, is recognized as an extremist organization in Russia and banned).
“Unfortunately, today I notified the organizers of Wimbledon of my refusal to participate in the competition. Yesterday I felt unwell and tested positive for COVID-19. The symptoms are not very serious, but I think this is the best solution. Thank you all for your support always. I hope to be back on the court soon,” said Bautista-Agut, world number 19.
The second tennis player in two days withdrew from Wimbledon due to coronavirus
In the second round, the 34-year-old Spaniard had to face Daniel-Elai Galan of Colombia, who now automatically advanced to the next round.
Earlier, Croat Marin Cilic (17th racket of the world) and Italian Matteo Berrettini (11), last year’s finalist of the tournament, withdrew from Wimbledon because of the coronavirus.
