Norrie Out Of Japan Open With Covid

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Cameron Norrie said on Sunday that he caught Covid while in Seoul, forcing him to withdraw from both the Korea and Japan Opens.

The Briton withdrew less than an hour before the quarterfinals of the Korea Open on Friday. The ATP said he was ill, but gave no more details.

Norrie wrote on his Instagram page: “Unfortunately, I had a positive Covid test in Korea and wasn’t able to compete in the rest of my matches”.

The 27-year-old said that he has not experienced any symptoms and was feeling fine, but will be unable to compete at this week’s Japan Open because of quarantine requirements.

Norrie, who was second seed at the Korea Open, had been scheduled to face Jenson Brooksby of the United States in the last eight in Seoul.
