Iga Swiatek will enter a period of quarantine after meeting with Polish President Andrzej Duda. Duda would later test positive for Covid-19.
"Neither I nor members of my team have symptoms of coronavirus. We carry out tests regularly. We will quarantine ourselves in accordance with current procedures," the 19-year-old tennis star said in a Twitter post.
Swiatek met with Duda after becoming the first Polish player to win a Grand Slam singles title. Such was her dominance she did not drop a set throughout the clay-court tournament at Roland Garros, and became the youngest winner since Monica Seles lifted the Suzanne Lenglen Cup in 1992.
