The 18-year-old Spaniard said he's feeling good with "very mild symptoms" of COVID-19.

"I'm sad about the way I miss such an important and super special tournament for me as the Davis Cup," Alcaraz posted on social media. "I was very excited to be able to play and represent my country here in Madrid in front of my people. But sometimes things don't happen as one wants and you have to overcome it.

"At the moment, I am very well with very mild symptoms and we will see how it progresses. A lot of encouragement to the whole team. I will be cheering and watching on television."




World No. 60 Pedro Martinez has stepped in to replace the 32nd-ranked Alcaraz on the Spanish squad.
