I would also like to thank the cops, the Civil Guard, the army, as well as the others who make us feel more confident that we will have a good time. They are at the forefront and are at risk of being infected, and today they are our heroes. I want to express my admiration for everyone! Thank you very much! ”Said Nadal.

And Roger Federer (38, 4 ATP), another famous tennis player, spoke through his Instagram account about the coronavirus pandemic and made several recommendations.
“I also stay at home and I haven’t shaken a person for a while. Of course, I wash my hands often, as we should always do. At these times, helping one another is more important than ever.
Especially because we want to help the elderly. They have an increased risk of getting sick and we need to help them. So, keep the distance of two meters from each other and do not shake hands. “- Roger Federer
