The Australian Open will be no matter what
The organizers of the Australian Open, as well as local authorities, are confident that the first tournament of 2021 will be held according to plan and will not be conducted in spite of the corner.
However, there is a huge problem with the arrival of athletes. The fact is that Australia has banned staying in the country without a two-week quarantine, and even for tennis players, the country's authorities are not going to make exceptions yet.
It is possible that tennis players will have to fly to Australia in advance-in mid-December.
«We are confident that the tournament will take place. The question is, do tennis players need to be here in mid-December? We are working on this issue, » said Daniel Andrews, Chief Executive of the state of Victoria.
But perhaps this has its positive aspects. Thanks to this, athletes will have a great chance to get to know the court as well as possible and prepare properly.
To date, we already know the tournament schedule, which includes five-game weeks, which all bettors can also find in the tennis line on the bookmaker's website.
So, remember to record, or just put a notification so that you don't miss the live broadcast and play live-betting:
- January 4-the first Premier tournament of the international category; ITF ITF W60;
- January 11-Australian Open qualification Premier tournament, International tournament;
- January 18-Australian Open;
- January 25-Australian Open WTA 125k Series tournament; ITF W60 tournament;
- February 1-international tournament; ITF W60 tournament.
Or in, that only those athletes who have entered in qualifying or know us that the Australian Open will be allowed to enter the territory of Australia.
It is known for certain that all tournaments will be held in the state of Victoria, the capital of which is Melbourne. This means there will be no competition in Sydney, Adelaide, Hobart, and Brisbane.
Previously, there were doubts that the tournament could be canceled, but Australia managed to take the corner under control - no more than 5-25 cases have been diagnosed in recent days.
