Cameron Norrie's road to Turin took a detour.

Norrie was forced out of this week's Tokyo tournament after testing positive for COVID-19 in Korea.

"Unfortunately I had a positive Covid test in Korea and wasn't able to compete in the rest of my matches," Norrie posted on Twitter. "I have no symptoms and I am feeling 100 percent.

"I was really hoping to go to Tokyo but because of the quarantine period I will not be able to play there."

World No. 8 Norrie is currently in 11th place in the race for a spot in the eight-man Nitto ATP Finals in Turin, Italy.

Felix Auger-Aliassime, Alexander Zverev, Hubert Hurkacz and Taylor Fritz are among the men ahead of Norrie in the race to Turin.

The left-handed Norrie said he hopes to play Stockholm, Vienna and the Rolex Paris Masters in his bid to qualify for Turin.
