Andy Murray tests positive for coronavirus and is a serious doubt for the Australian Open

The Scottish tennis player had planned to fly to Melbourne in the next few hours before his positive was known. He hopes that the organization will allow him to attend.


British tennis player Andy Murray has tested positive for covid-19, which calls into question his participation in the Australian Open, as confirmed by various local media on Thursday.

The athlete, former world number one, is currently isolated at his home despite planning to travel to Australia on one of the 18 charter flights authorized by the tournament organization.

Murray, who is in good health at the moment, is confident that he will be able to arrive in Australia later than initially planned and participate in the first Grand Slam of the year, which will begin on 8 February.

The tennis player and his team are, according to the UK media, trying to work out an acceptable solution with the competition director, Craig Tiley.

Players are currently expected to start arriving in the country within the next 24 hours in time for them to complete a two-week quarantine period, during which they are allowed to leave their dormitories to train for five hours a day.

The tournament organization had stipulated that a positive result for COVID-19 before flying to that country would imply that the affected tennis player would not be allowed to travel.
