German Alexander Zverev says he tested negative for COVID-19 after playing sick with a fever and breathing difficulties in the fourth round of the French Open on Sunday.
“I received the result today. It’s negative. I don’t have COVID-19,” Zverev, who lost in fourth set to Italian Jannik Sinner, told Eurosport on Monday.
“I’ve been better. I have a cold. You can also have it during the COVID-19 period. We’ve been playing at eight degrees and drizzle for two weeks.
“It is normal that the body is tired. I haven’t had a real break after the US Open either. This is my typical cold. I know it already. I have a bit of a sore throat, then a cold and my nose is full followed at night by fever maybe. The fever was 37.6 [Celsius].”
