Tennis Special government permission the only way in
Andy Murray could be out of the Australian Open after having tested positive for COVID-19.
Only a local government official permission would allow the Scottish tennis player to fly to Melbourne.
Meanwhile, according to local health protocols, all players should self-quarantine for 14 days upon their arrival on Australian soil.
Murray, currently ranked 123rd in the ATP ranking, has fully recovered from a surgery after picking up a hip injury and was given a wild card to fly to Australia for the tournament.
The first grand slam tournament of 2021 was delayed by three weeks due to coronavirus restrictions and is set to begin on February 8.
