Brazil’s Thiago Seyboth Wild has become the first pro tennis player to confirm that he tested positive for coronavirus and is at home recovering in self-isolation following the diagnoses.

Hey guys. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve contracted the COVID-19 but I’ve self-isolated myself for the past week. And I’ve been taking care of myself and following the doctor’s instructions. Thiago Seyboth Wild

The 20-year-old Next Generation star, who won his maiden ATP Tour title at the Chile Open at the start of March, made the revelation via social media.

The deadly coronavirus, or COVID-19, includes symptoms such as fever, a dry cough and shortness of breath.

Around the world, many countries have been placed on lockdown due to the virus.

“Hey guys. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve contracted the COVID-19 but I’ve self-isolated myself for the past week. And I’ve been taking care of myself and following the doctor’s instructions.” Seyboth Wild said.

In a separate video, where he addresses fans in Portuguese, Seyboth Wild said 10 days ago he had a cold and fever, and then underwent a test for Covid-19, which turned out positive.

He added that he is feeling better but stressed how serious the illness can be.

The diagnosis comes just over a month after the achieved his best ever run on the ATP Tour to date.

At the Santiago Open in Chile, he stunned the field by winning his maiden ATP title as a wild card entrant, ousting Norway’s Casper Ruud in a marathon three-set final.

As a result of his triumph, he rocketed 60 places up the world rankings to a career best of 113th in the world and is currently ranked 114th.

“This is a reminder for you all to stay at home, take care of the people you love and help us all to not spread this disease. Stay home, and stay safe,” he stressed.

A former US Open boy’s champion, Seyboth Wild last played a match in the Davis Cup on 6 March in Adelaide where he lost in three sets to Australia’s John Millman.

At present all competitive tennis tournaments are suspended until 8 June due to the pandemic.
