ATP not happy with Sam Querrey for reportedly fleeing from Russia after testing positive for COVID-19

American tennis player Sam Querrey is reportedly at large after he and his family tested positive for the coronavirus, much to the consternation of the ATP and Russian health authorities.

Querrey, who is No. 49 in the ATP’s men’s singles rankings, pulled out of the ATP 500 St. Petersburg on Monday after the tests. He was replaced in the main draw by Viktor Troiki.

However, out of fear of a mandatory hospitalization if they displayed COVID-19 symptoms, Querrey, his wife Abby and eight-month-old son Ford have instead exited the country via private jet and are now hiding out at an Airbnb in an unknown European country, according to tennis reporter Ben Rothenberg.
