Kudla was leading 6-4 5-3 when an official came to announce that Kudla had the COVID
Official gave the rule: if Benchetrit wins the ongoing game, he wins. If Kudla serves out the match, he wins the match. Kudla won that game, making it 64 63.
But question: is he automatically out of QR2? What about contacts with opponent + umpire + ???

Has Cerundolo also tested positive? The AO website has given Vilella Martinez a W/O into QR3.

If the news about Kudla is true, then it seems highly likely that the winner of Copil and Sweeny will go straight into QR3 as well.

EDIT: AO draw just updated, Kudla is out, winner of Copil and Sweeny moves to QR3

Oh damn, this sucks massively. Hope Benchetrit didn't catch it.
That's great news for Copil, if he could just fucking beat Sweeny. He was never going to beat Kudla.

Hard to understand how this is possible, with so little reported cases in the area :censored:

Must have arrived with it, I'm sure that is going to catch the attention of Australia :poop:

I heard a rumor AO will announce if anyone in the crowd sneezes during a match, the whole tournament will be canceled. Any truth to this rumor?

What an absolute mess. I thought the whole point of the tests was so that players would only play if they test negative. And then if he was informed before winning of course Benchetrit should move through (even if he didn't really deserve it). Plus now Benchetrit and the ball kids (are there any?) plus possibly others have been exposed. But as someone else here said, it also goes to show how ridiculous the hysteria surrounding this virus is.
