Contact case of Benoit Paire, who tested positive before the start of the US Open, was not entitled to the same treatment as the other players who have been in contact with the Avignon, in particular the French …
Questioned in the columns of Sudpresse, Ysaline Bonaventure threw a big stone in the pond.According to the Belgian player, Daniil Medvedev, contact case of Benoit Paire, would indeed have been entitled to preferential treatment from the organizers of the US Open by escaping the restrictions imposed on the other players concerned, including herself.
“Benoît Paire tested positive and that’s when they started looking at all close contacts in the last 48 hours before his test. There were eleven people sitting at a table playing cards. We were interviewed by the USTA and the Health Department of New York, which established a protocol that allowed us to play. Me, I was at the stadium and we had to lock ourselves in our rooms ”, she recalled at first, adding:“ The most shocking is that players like Medvedev played on the PlayStation. with Benoît Paire. There is evidence, videos of it all. And nothing was done. He just had to get tested every day. “
The presence of Daniil Medvedev in contact cases was nevertheless a boon for the other players concerned. At least that’s the feeling of the world. “Honestly, I think that’s the only reason we got to play,” says Ysaline Bonaventure. It is because he was in the list…, she indeed maintained. I have no proof but that’s what I think. Once we lost in the second round (she was eliminated by Alizé Cornet, editor’s note), it was devastating. Mladenovic was disqualified in doubles. And everyone has been quarantined! “

Missing a practice early in the week is a concern for Brian Kelly and his team, but if they are able to practice on Wednesday, it should be enough time to install the gameplan for the Demon Deacons on Saturday. Practices later in the week aren’t as physical as the ones early in the week, but still, as long as Notre Dame can get back on the field without interruption, they should be well-prepared to beat Wake Forest and improve to 3-0 on the early season.
Notre Dame is not alone in this as more than a dozen football games have already been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, and that comes on the heels of the season starting later than usual and the SEC and Big Ten haven’t started their seasons yet.
It’s why the Big Ten, Pac-12, MAC and Mountain West postponed their seasons initially and why the latter three still haven’t committed to returning to play.Next: 30 biggest college football scandals of all time
