World number two Simona Halep has tested positive for coronavirus and is recovering well from her mild symptoms.
“Hi everyone, I wanted to let you know that I tested positive for COVID-19,” Reuters quoted the 29-year-old Romanian as saying on Twitter on Saturday.
“I am self-isolating at home and (I) am recovering well from mild symptoms.
“I feel good … we will get through this together.”
The former world number one did not travel to New York for this year’s U.S. Open Grand Slam due to health concerns over the pandemic.
Halep, who won the French Open in 2018 and is the reigning Wimbledon champion, made the trip to Paris for the Clay Court Grand Slam.
However, she went down to eventual champion Iga Swiatek in the fourth round at Roland Garros this month.
The Women’s WTA Tour has a tournament scheduled in Austria from Nov. 9 but Halep once said that her 2020 season was over following her French Open defeat.
