Written by on January 15, 2021

FORMER WORLD NUMBER ONE ANDY MURRAY’S PARTICIPATION AT THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN IS IN DOUBT AFTER THE BRITON TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS.

THE 33-YEAR-OLD SCOT WAS SET TO FLY OUT TO MELBOURNE ON A CHARTERED FLIGHT ARRIVING THERE OVER THE NEXT 36 HOURS.

INSTEAD HE REMAINS IN QUARANTINE AND ISOLATING AT HOME IN LONDON.

MURRAY, WHO IS SAID TO BE IN GOOD HEALTH, REMAINS HOPEFUL HE WILL BE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL SAFELY AT A LATER DATE AND COMPETE AS PLANNED.

THE FIVE-TIME AUSTRALIAN OPEN RUNNER-UP PULLED OUT OF LAST WEEK’S ATP EVENT IN DELRAY BEACH AS HE WANTED TO “MINIMISE THE RISKS” OF CATCHING A TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT TO FLORIDA.

THE AUSTRALIAN OPEN WILL START ON THE 8TH OF FEBRUARY AT MELBOURNE PARK, THREE WEEKS LATER THAN USUAL, BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC.
