Tiafoe testing positive showcased the dangers of attempting a sports event despite all the safety precautions taken.
yeah, but who cares.

a wise ruler in the Roman Empire said long time ago that people need bread and entertainment.
so, I think we can all rest assured that ATP Tour will resume, just like other sports resumed.

While I don't really care if Paire is playing or not.

But this might break the ice for some players in top 50. He might be just the first to withdraw from about 10-15 players in upcoming days.

I have a very sneaky suspicion that Nadal will not withdraw, despite giving all signs towards the contrary.

Djokovic will be happy to play now that he is immune.
 
I hate him, it's a clown, he's vulgar, now he have a running gag now : screaming "la chatte" who means ***** in english, a french expression to say "the luck" no ambition he said he was happy with this career and this life.

Yep, all it takes is a few top 25 players and issues begin.

His words should be taken lightly. The dude keeps saying year after year how much he hates playing here or there and that he is not going to play.
But he ends up playing 500 tournaments a year. He hates training so he chooses match play to keep himself in shape, and he loves the money so much that he sometimes fails in singles because he is too tired from playing the doubles in the same time, if not the mixed doubles also.

Inmunovic is unbeatable now, right?

What dangers? Is he dying, or more so having to apologize and explain himself to the mob, who care more about his test result than his condition and symptoms (if any...)? This is akin to a witch hunt.

I know everyone is making jokes but Paire is a known name and is a big enough player to make others read this and question playing themselves. Also correct me if I'm wrong but isn't he claiming the reason is also that he has a few injuries too? It's not completely because of the state of America, although he does cite that as part of the reason.
