The 2021 US Open has not yet been played and the Australian Open 2022 is already being considered. This is the maelstrom of the tennis world. It is that the epidemiological situation is not close to ideal and different options are being considered for the best possible development of skills.
Craig Tiley, representing Tennis Australia, made it clear that quarantine in a hotel is not an option on the table from a change regarding the regulations that reigned for the 2021 edition of the tournament.
However the Major Australian will be far from back to normal. At least that is not a possible scenario and the most viable option would be the creation of a “biosecure bubble” for two weeks prior to the tournament. Players in this bubble would enjoy greater freedom than they did this year, where they could only move from their hotel room to the courts.
“There is still a long time until the tournament starts, but right now our intention is to create a bubble for two weeks in which players will have the possibility to move freely. They will be protected and also safe from the outside community itself. After those two weeks they will be able to go out and play the Australian Open, with the public. We are working with the government and the health authorities so that there are also people in the stands “, Craig stated to the middle Sky Sports.
