Fresh off winning an exhibition in Abu Dhabi, Andrey Rublev has hit a roadblock on his journey to Australia. The Russian announced he has tested positive for COVID-19 in Barcelona over social media on Sunday.

Rublev is experiencing "minimal" symptoms at the moment and is taking every precaution to keep others safe while recovering. He is currently isolating and is under the supervision of doctors. The world No. 5 is fully vaccinated and was continuing his preparations for the 2022 season, but his training will come to a halt for now.

"I am very upset and concerned about what is happening. Please take care of yourself and the other people around you. I will return to the court as soon as possible," he wrote on social.

The 24-year-old isn't the only player who competed in Abu Dhabi that tested positive. Most recently, Denis Shapovalov revealed he will be undergoing a 10-day quarantine due to testing positive upon arrival in Australia. Other Abu Dhabi participants including Belinda Bencic, Ons Jabeur and Rafael Nadal all picked up the virus.

With the ATP Cup just a few days away, Rublev will most likely miss the team event.
