Fernando Verdasco continues his particular war against Roland Garros after the organization of the French Grand Slam prevented him from playing the tournament because he had a positive PCR test.
The Spanish tennis player, number 59 in the world today, argues that he already tested positive a month ago for what the coronavirus has already passed and the test carried out in Paris could be a mistake. However, they refused to repeat the test.
“After 50 hours in the room I told them that the painting would come out in three hours, that I was going to do a test on my own because I was sure it was negative and that I was going to tell that they had refused to take a second test“, he explained in Ser Deportivos de la Cadena SER.
Verdasco then did two PCR tests on his own, both of which came back negative: “Imagine my indignation, it is incredible, it is disrespectful for a player who has been playing Roland Garros for 16 years. And the next day they change the rule and the second test can be done. When I’m out of the box, “she explained.
Finally, he confirmed that he will “evidently” take legal action against the tournament: “Nobody can believe that a tournament like Roland Garros can do that. Can not be. It is no longer a thing of money, it is a thing of damage that does you personally and professionally, “he said.
