Since the USA is leading in the count of COVID-19 cases, the American former tennis player and John McEnroe’s brother Patrick McEnroe has been tested positive for the virus. He is from New York and has lived there all his life. However, Big Apple became the new epicenter of coronavirus. Over 38,000 cases have been recorded as of Tuesday.
The 53-year-old Patrick McEnroe had minor symptoms of coronavirus for several days, and on Tuesday, he was tested positive. “That’s the bad news,” Patrick McEnroe revealed. “The good news is I feel fine. My symptoms have passed. I feel really 100 percent.”
The New Yorkers are currently facing the toughest time on the planet. In addition, the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York is going to be used as a 350-bed medical facility since the city is falling short of beds in the hospital.
In 1991, Patrick reached Grand Slam semi-finals at the Australian Open and also claimed the French Open doubles title in 1989. He was even ranked World Number 28 in singles. When it comes to the doubles domain, his ranking reached World Number three. In addition, he is famously known as the youngest brother of the seven-time Grand Slam champion John McEnroe.
The coronavirus pandemic has disturbed the whole world, as well as the lives of most people. When it comes to tennis, the entire 2020 calendar is messed up with tournaments canceled until June 7, 2020.
