ESPN tennis announcer Patrick McEnroe said on social media Tuesday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus.

He tweeted a video from his basement saying he “got some minor symptoms about 10 or 11 days ago,” and he just got his test results back this morning after going to a drive-through testing center in New York’s Westchester County.

The news comes days after another of ESPN’s on-air personalities, NBA announcer Doris Burke, revealed that she is recovering from a bout with the disease.

McEnroe, a former pro player whose brother is tennis legend John McEnroe, serves as a match analyst for ESPN but also calls play-by-play and works as a studio host or analyst. He has been at the Worldwide Leader since 1995 and has worked a more extensive schedule since 1997. He previously worked at CBS Sports from 1996-2008.

A former Davis Cup captain, Patrick McEnroe had most of his pro tennis success in doubles play, winning 16 titles and rising to No. 3 in the world in 1993.
