On October 8, Beijing time, the Belgian star Goffin announced on his personal social media that he was diagnosed as positive for the new crown and will withdraw from the St. Petersburg station, which will start next week.
"I have bad news to tell everyone that I was tested for the new crown yesterday and the result was positive, so I had to withdraw from the competition at St. Petersburg. So far, I feel good physically. I will self-quarantine next. If everything goes well, I will be back in Antwerp, thank you for your support!" Goffin wrote on personal social media.
Goffin, who played in the French Open as the 11th seed, lost to 19-year-old Italian star Cinna in three sets in the first round. His overall performance in the game was mediocre. We wish the Belgian star will recover as soon as possible and return to the game as soon as possible!
