The Niçoise clarified her thoughts after mentioning, on Tuesday, an epidemic of Covid-19 in the women’s draw during the last Roland-Garros tournament.
The day after a statement that made a lot of noise in the world of the little yellow ball, Alizé Cornet wished, via social networks, to clarify his thoughts. On Tuesday, the Niçoise said that during the last Roland-Garros tournament, an epidemic of Covid-19 had hit the athletes without it being known. “At Roland-Garros, there was an epidemic of covid, nobody talked about it. In the locker room, everyone got it and we didn’t say anything“, had dropped the player. The statement, taken up by many French and foreign media, had the effect of a small bomb.
This Wednesday, Cornet is holding a version that has little to do with the revelations of a few hours ago. “I still want to clarify something: I said that I “suspected” a few cases of Covid during Roland-Garros, without having any proof. It was above all to emphasize that the virus was now part of our lives and that we had to deal with it. Bar point“, she wrote on social networks.
Roland-Garros confirms three cases of Covid-19
According to a source close to the Parisian Grand Slam contacted by AFP, three cases of Covid-19 were identified during the 2022 edition. This does not exclude possible other tests carried out outside the supervision of the tournament.
The Wimbledon tournament is worried about an upsurge in Covid-19 cases which have already hit the ranks of the men’s draw. Matteo Berrettini, contaminated, had to give up the competition. Before the Italian, undefeated this season on grass, it was another cador on the world circuit, the Croatian Marin Cilic, who had to give up the annual meeting at the All England Lawn Tennis Club for the same reasons.
