Medvedev, who lives in Monte-Carlo, has been placed in isolation and his health will be monitored by the tournament physician. Medvedev has been replaced in the draw by Juan Ignacio Londero.

The Australian Open finalist, who had a first-round bye, hit with 11-time Monte-Carlo champion Rafael Nadal yesterday.

"I'm very disappointed that I can't play here at home," Medvedev said in a statement. "My focus now is on recovery and I look forward to getting back out on tour as soon and as safely as possible."

World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is the top seed in his home tournament, while 13-time Roland Garros champion Nadal finds himself in the unfamiliar position of third seed in his first tournament since the Australian Open.

Nadal will open against left-hander Federico Delbonis. Djokovic is scheduled to face Miami Open finalist Jannik Sinner in his opener.
