Edmund coach Davin tests positive for COVID-19


Another positive test in the tennis world: Argentine Davis Cup captain Franco Davin is in isolation at his home on Key Biscayne.

Clarin reports that Davin, 50, the coach of Brit Kyle Edmund, felt unwell and, despite thinking it was heatstroke, had a coronavirus test on June 26.

It came back positive on Monday.

Davin works out of an academy in Miami. Clarin reports that he came into contact with a number of other tennis people, all of which he has contacted to let them know they might have been exposed.

One of them was retired player Juan Monaco, with whom he shot a video.

Another Argentine, former WTA pro Patricia Tarabini (also now a coach), was tested, but the results are still unknown.
