Health officials attempted to stop Adrian Mannarino from playing at US Open

Adrian Mannarino revealed that health officials in New York tried to stop his third-round tie with Alexander Zverev from going ahead. The Frenchman is one of the 11 players facing extra restrictions because of his contact with Benoit Paire, who tested positive for Covid-19 on the eve of the tournament, and officials said he should have been in his room quarantining instead of playing Zverev. His match was delayed by three hours and when it did finally go ahead the German fifth seed won 6-7 (4) 6-4 6-2 6-2.
