The Australia Open began with another controversy over the coronavirus. On this occasion, the conflict arose with Bernard Tomic. The Australian tennis player maintained that he had physical discomfort during his match against Roman Safiullin and indicated to the chair umpire that he was sure he would test positive for Covid-19.

“I am convinced that I have Covid, I tell you that in the next two days I will test positive. If I do not test positive in three days, I invite you to dinner, and if it is proven that I have the virus, you invite me “, was the comment that Tomic made to the Brazilian Aline Da Rocha Nocinto

The 29-year-old tennis player was fatigued throughout the match, even admitted feeling dizzy and took his pulse more than once. It should be noted that it is not the first controversy that is generated in the competition, since the center of attention was previously with Novak Djokovic and his trial.

Bernard Tomic also denounced the lack of a PCR test for the tennis players participating in the tournament: “I can’t believe they don’t do PCR on us. They are allowing players to hit the court with rapid antigen tests that we do ourselves in the room. There are no official PCR tests ”.

In this way, the Australian decided not to remain silent.; however, the tennis player has had striking comments before. A month ago he declared that he played a match “high” in the Australian Open. On the other hand, the duel ended with a victory for Russian Safiullin by two sets of 6-1, 6-4.
