Players could compete while in quarantine: Australian Open boss

Players preparing for the Australian Open could be allowed to compete while in quarantine after arriving in the country, Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley says.

International arrivals to Australia have to isolate for 14 days as part of strict COVID-19 protocols, but Tiley said in a letter to players that TA was working with local authorities to ensure they would be able to train and prepare for the Australian Open and other local events in the lead-up during their two-week isolation.

“We will continue to keep you updated on any changes, including the possibility of being able to compete during the two-week period,” Tiley wrote.

Melbourne is due to host the grand slam from January 18-31, but has been in hard lockdown since early August due to a second wave of coronavirus infections.
