The WTA round returned to action today (Saturday) after nearly five months with the Palermo Tournament, but just before the qualifiers opened it was revealed that one of the tennis players had been found positive for Corona. The tennis player’s name was not released. She was sent to isolation when she was not experiencing symptoms of the disease and of course was removed from the competition.

The organizers of the competition, as mentioned the first in the professional women’s round since the beginning of March, said afterwards: “Anyone who could come in contact with the actress was sent to be tested. Whoever is found positive will remain in isolation, until undergoing medical treatment as directed.

Joe Conte and Simona Alp, the two senior women in the women’s tennis, gave up their participation in the tournament. Among the participants should be Yelena Ostapenko, 2017 Roland Garros champion, Marcetta Wanderushba who reached the final in France in 2019, Petra Martic ranked 15th in the world and Christina Mladenovic and Daria Kastakina who were in the top 10.

The men’s ATP round is set to return later this month with the Cincinnati Masters Tournament, in which the women will also play. This tournament will be held in a bubble in New York starting Aug. 22, after which players will advance to the U.S. Open, which will begin Aug. 31.
