American Frances Tiafoe is the latest tennis player to test positive for coronavirus. The 22-year-old Tiafoe revealed his positive test on Twitter on Saturday, and said he would pull out of the All-American Team Cup as a result.

Tiafoe said he’s been training in Florida, but had passed coronavirus tests as recently as last week.

He added that he will get tested again next week, and is currently quarantining in Georgia — where the All-American Team Cup is taking place.

Tiafoe’s positive test marks yet another in the sport. Novak Djokovic, his wife Jelena, and Grigor Dimitrov all tested positive for coronavirus following the Adria Tour. The event was canceled following Dimitrov’s positive test.

Tiafoe is ranked 81st on the ATP’s men’s tennis list.
