“Australian Open will not take place under the current restrictions,” warns Craig Tiley
Craig Tiley has warned that the Australian Open won’t happen unless the government grants quarantine exemptions to players.
Current rules in Melbourne mandate that anyone coming to Australia from overseas must be quarantined in a hotel for 14 days before they can go out.
That would mean the players couldn’t practice, and that would be a deal breaker, according to Tiley.
Instead, he is hoping for an exemption to allow travel between the hotel and the practice sites.
“If a player is quarantined and stuck in a hotel for two weeks just before his season, [the Australian Open] won’t happen, “Tiley told the Australian Associated Press.
“You can’t ask the players to quarantine for two weeks and then get out and be ready to play a Grand Slam.
“We fully accept that anyone from overseas must be in quarantine for two weeks,” he added.
“What we are negotiating or what we want to agree on is that we set up a quarantine environment in which you can train and switch between the hotel and the courts during these two weeks.”
Novak Djokovic and Sofia Kenin are the reigning Australian Open champions, with the hope that Roger Federer will return to the tournament after an injury.
