Up to the last moment, we hoped that the Covid-19 virus would spare our Mouratoglou Tennis Academy. We knew that French President Macron would force all schools to close from March 16, 2020, but we hoped that the tennis part would be allowed to continue. It was not the case. On Monday we found out that the Academy itself would close, which made us very sad.
We heard on that same Monday that many countries were about to close borders and it would probably be safer for my dad and me to go to Switzerland by car.
As of today April 6, 2020, Switzerland does not have full confinement, but bans gatherings of more than 5 people, and requests people to keep their distance, not shake hands, and wash hands regularly.
Tennis clubs are forbidden to open or run tournaments, luckily it’s possible to use private courts such as this one below.
I hope all of you stay safe, and that my Mouratoglou Tennis Academy will reopen soon.
