Madison Keys tests positive for COVID and will miss Australia

The American knew the result of the test before being able to travel to Melbourne. Yes, Yastremska will be there despite being accused of doping.


Hard setback for American tennis before the start of the Australian Open. And is that one of its best representatives on the WTA circuit, Madison Keys, will not be in Melbourne because it has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last hours. This was confirmed by the Illinois State through a message on its Twitter profile.

"Hello everyone, I wanted to let you know that I unfortunately tested positive for COVID-19 before I could fly to Australia. I am very disappointed that I will not be able to play in the next few weeks after the tough preseason training and knowing that Tennis Australia and the circuits have I've done a lot for this tournament to take place. I am self-isolated at home and will continue to follow all the necessary sanitary precautions. I will look forward to returning to the circuit next month. Thank you all for your support. Stay healthy and safe, "said the American .

Yastremska does travel

Keys's situation is in stark contrast to Dayana Yastremska's. The Ukrainian, who was allegedly suspended for doping (anabolic steroids), took one of the planes chartered by the WTA from Abu Dhabi to Melbourne with the intention of contesting the first major of the season. It seems that while his case is being studied, in which Yastremska always defended his innocence, he will be able to continue competing without major problems.
