Just arrived back home to Russia🇷🇺. Coronavirus pandemic has been announced, all tennis tournaments have been cancelled for six weeks. This situation leaves no one indifferent. The health and lives of people is the most important thing. Stay with your family and loved ones at home whenever possible. I believe that in the nearest future humanity will defeat this virus and the situation will be much better🙏🏻 ⠀ #StayAtHome #CoronaOut Сейчас я вернулся домой в Россию🇷🇺. Объявлена пандемия коронавируса, все теннисные турниры остановлены на шесть недель, ситуация никого не оставляет равнодушным. Здоровье и жизни людей — самое важное. Оставайтесь со своей семьей и близкими при возможности дома. Верю, что в ближайшее время человечество победит этот вирус и ситуация изменится в лучшую сторону🙏🏻
