    Australian Open will Allow Unvaccinated Players to Compete

    Unvaccinated athletes selected to play in next year’s Australian Open must undergo a 14-day quarantine, the WTA Tour told its players in an email. The email was leaked to U.S. media and obtained by freelance tennis journalist Ben Rothenberg. It contradicted a statement made by Australia’s immigration minister, which stated they would need to be double vaccinated to get a visa and compete.

    There are a large number of players on the men’s ATP tour and women’s WTA that are currently unvaccinated. Furthermore the number one ranked men’s tennis player, Novak Djokovic has refused to disclose his vaccination status. Tennis Australia has still not commented on arrangements for unvaccinated players, including quarantine.

    The governing body said “We are optimistic that we can hold the Australian Open as close to pre-pandemic conditions as possible,” Players who participated in the 2021 edition of the Australian Open had to undergo a two-week quarantine. However, most were allowed to leave their hotels to practice.
