Kamil Majchrzak tested positive for COVID-19 just before Poland’s semifinal tie against Spain.
After testing positive for COVID-19, Majchrzak isolated himself and tried to take all the necessary steps.
“Hello everyone. I regret to announce that I tested positive for COVID. Therefore I’m obliged to withdraw from the ATP Cup,” Majchrzak announced.
“I’m following all the protocols, including isolation and reaching out to the people I have been in touch with. Team Poland has also followed all the necessary steps. I’m glad they are all fine and ready for the match.
“I’m experiencing minor symptoms. Looking forward to be back on the court as soon as the Australian safety protocols allow it.
“Thanks for your support.”
Majchrzak shined in the group stage
Majchrzak was one of the main reasons why Poland made the semifinal as he won all three of his group stage matches.
Majcrzak broke his pelvic bone at the 2020 ATP Cup so returning to the ATP Cup in such fashion meant a lot to him.
Majchrzak beat Michail Pervolarakis, Aleksandre Bakshi and Federico Delbonis in the group stage.
In an interview with the ATP website, Majchrzak recalled breaking his pelvic bone.
“It was very painful for me, because it was the first edition of the ATP Cup and I was playing matches for Poland. Matches for the country are with different emotions because you don’t only play for yourself, you also play for your colleagues, for your country,” Majchrzak told the ATP website.
Also, Majchrzak spoke about his relationship with Hubert Hurkacz.
“We’ve been practising together from time to time or playing tournaments or at least seeing each other at the tournaments from a very young age and at places where there were indoor courts that were zero degrees inside,” Majchrzak said of his relationship with Hurkacz.
“Now we are here. He’s a Top 10 player in the world, so it’s a very inspiring friendship and I hope to keep it going.”
