Players can train in Australian Open quarantine, ATP Cup cancelled, says report

Andy Murray backs compulsory vaccination as Australian Open'likely to be delayed by up to two weeks

"I think that's still most likely", Pakula said after negotiations between tennis officials and various levels of government came to a close on Wednesday.

The Age newspaper reported that the men's governing body ATP has told the players that they would be allowed to train during their 14-day quarantine period ahead of the Australian Open.

The Australian Open tennis tournament will "most likely" be delayed by a week, according to Victoria's Sport and Major Events Minister Martin Pakula. I've seen reports that suggest that it's likely to be delayed by a week or two.

The political leader of Australia's Victorian state says Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2020, despite "incredibly complex" negotiations, he is confident January's Australian Open tennis tournament will proceed.

Australian Open organisers said on Friday that nothing regarding the quarantine for players arriving in the country for the Grand Slam had been decided yet despite a report in local media that competitors would be able to train while in self-isolation.

"The rest of the world is on fire so there will be quarantine for anyone coming to our city and state, there's just no way around it". Standing firm on quarantine requirements, the 48-year-old added that he can't "jeopardize" his state's coronavirus-free status for a tennis tournament. It's not particularly helpful.

ATP Finals champion Daniil Medvedev says players health will be at risk if quarantine restrictions prevent them from playing or practising in the run-up to the Australian Open.

Djokovic, the men's world No 1, has called on the Victorian government to allow players to compete in warm-up tournaments while quarantining, while John Millman, who was last month elected to the ATP Tour Player Council, said it would be impossible to expect players to perform at a grand slam straight out of two weeks in a hotel room.

Uncertainty has surrounded the scheduled first grand slam of next year amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"At least from what was said before, we would be able to practice on tennis courts and practice physically, which is really important".

Tennis Australia chief executive Craig Tiley said on Sunday his organisation was "doing everything we can to finalise the summer of tennis as soon as possible".

"And then there's the conversations with the Department of Health and Human Services and Justice".

This story was first published on CNN.com, "Australian Open "likely" to be postponed by "one or two weeks"".

"An extremely rigorous testing regime will apply to the players both before they leave the port that they come in from and when they arrive".
