Tennis has officially returned with the WTA Palermo Ladies Open this week, but safety protocols have already been called into question.
An unnamed player has already been forced to withdraw after testing positive, and the “bubble” that WTA will attempt to uphold at each tournament has already been threatened.
Petra Martic is “not confident at all” that players will adhere to COVID-19 protocols.
“We all depend on each other and I don’t want to pay for someone else’s mistake, and I think that’s fair; whoever doesn’t follow the rules should be punished accordingly,” Martic said, according to The National. (NYPost)
