Craig Tiley: "I'm sure Nadal will play the Australian Open"

After testing positive for Covid-19, Rafael Nadal’s presence at the Australian Open is still unknown. Although the manacorí continues without revealing a decision (the tournament begins on January 17) for Craig Tiley, CEO of Tennis Australia, the Spanish will participate.

“I’m sure Rafa will be here. Players who test positive now will complete a period of time until they are no longer infectious and will be fine. If you are going to test positive and want to play the Australian Open, your moment would be now, “the president told local media.

And he concluded by telling how is the preparation of the 2022 edition of the contest, in comparison to that of 2021. “It is true that in 2021 it was difficult, but a little easier than this year. There are many conditions and you do not know how all that can affect the tournament and especially the people. For example, If the players and their team share a room with someone and that person tests positive, everyone in that room will have to isolate themselves for seven days. “
