Australian Open Will receive no special treatment in Australia
Australian authorities are continuing to work hard to host the Australian Open safely in the midst of a global pandemic, and as such Novak Djokovic‘s request for quarantine to be eased has been vehemently denied.
All players set to partake in the competition are required to quarantine at this moment.
“People are free to put forward a list of demands, but the answer is no,” explained head of the Victoria State government, Daniel Andrews. “There is no special treatment for anyone.”
Djokovic is currently fulfilling his quarantine in the city of Adelaide, but he sent a letter to the CEO of Tennis Australia, Craig Tiley, suggesting six points which could improve the conditions for players.
To date, a total of 72 players have been forced to stay in their hotel rooms in Australia, with a maximum of five hours being permitted to leave and train.
