“Tennis is one of the sports with the least transmission of the virus”

Greg Rusedski, the former Canadian tennis player who also came to represent the United Kingdom, He is in favor of an early return to tennis at an official level, since for him it is one of the sports with the least chance of transmitting the virus. “Tennis, on a scale of one to ten, is one of the least transmitted: it is below golf. This sport, the more it can be transmitted to people, more it can broaden the appeal and help people realize how brilliant it is, “says Rusedski in an interview at GQ.

During his career, he became world number four and played the 1997 US Open final, defeated against Patrick Rafter, and achieved a total of 15 titles individually and three in doubles. He is currently 46 years old. “I am a structured person. The least I do every day are basic exercises when I get up and it's already an established ritual. I love riding the road bike, so when we were allowed to go an hour a day, within that hour I was trying to do 30 kilometers with climbs, “he says of his past confinement experience.

“It is a shame that Washington was canceled before the US Open. You have to be with your fingers crossed for New York. If the correct protocols are followed, it should be ready! “, He said recently after learning about the tournament suspension that marked the return of the ATP circuit.
