Ons is not the only tennis star who has been tested COVID positive. Few more like tennis legend Rafael Nadal, his coach Carlos Moya, tennis star Belinda Bencic and young tennis star Emma Raducanu have also been tested positive. The players took on to Twitter to announce this news.

Hi all. I wanted to announce that on my return home after playing the Abu Dhabi tournament, I have tested positive for COVID in the PCR test that was performed on me when I arrived in Spain. Both in Kuwait and Abu Dhabi we passed controls every two days and all were negative, the last being on Friday and having the results on Saturday.“ is what Nadal wrote

“Hi everyone, I just wanted to provide a quick update that unfortunately and even though I am fully vaccinated, I recently tested positive for COVID-19. I am currently isolating and taking all precautionary measurements to get through this as best as possible as I am experiencing quite severe symptoms (fever, aches, chills). While the timing is not ideal – as I was in the final stages of my preparations for the Australian Open swing – I will make my way to Australia as soon as I am cleared and past the isolation period.” Belinda wrote.

“Hello everyone, I wanted to tell you that I have also tested positive for COVID. On Sunday, upon landing in Mallorca and with some symptoms, I tested negative for antigens. A few hours later, when a positive was confirmed in the equipment, I went to do pcr and I tested positive.” Carlos tweeted.

Seems as if Abu Dhabi has become the COVID hotspot. Rafael, Emma, Belinda and Ons all of them were at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship, Abu Dhabi. While it is still not confirmed that what caused this, was it the fault of players, the administrative staff or the fans!
