An Australian Open In Crisis Or A Sign Of Things To Come?

January 19, 2021

Michael Pirrie reports from Melbourne as Novak Djokovic demands better conditions for tennis stars under quarantine ahead of the Australian Open.

With the Australian Open set to get underway next month, questions are being raised by the public down under as to whether the risk is worth it of having tennis stars arrive from every corner of the world, potentially bringing the virus with them.

Many of these star players have now arrived, some who have even tested positive just beforehand or on arrival, where they are being forced to quarantine in hotels, leading to complaints about services from a number of the athletes.

Is this difficulty the start of things to come for many international sporting events taking place in 2021?
