Former champion Andy Murray's participation in the Australian Open has been questioned after the champion was confirmed by the COVID-19 test.
The former world number one was supposed to be one of the 18 charter flights carried out by the event organizer, but it is still under domestic isolation.
The five-time Australian Open runner-up awarded a wildcard for this year's tournament, which will start on 8 February.
However, the Australian Tennis Association said that Murray won't be able to take the official charter flight for the event after testing positive.
The Australian Tennis Association said in a statement: Andy Murray stated that he has been tested for COVID-19 and he is in isolation at home in the United Kingdom.
Unfortunately, this means that he will not be able to take part in the official AO charter flights in Australia in the next few days and enter the isolation period with other players.
Fans of the Australian Open like Andy Murray very much, and we know how much he loves to play in Melbourne, and he worked hard for this opportunity.
Murray is in good health and still hopes to play in Melbourne Park at the stadium reported by British media. The event was delayed for three weeks due to strict pandemic hygiene measures in Australia.
However, even if Murray recovers quickly, it will be hard for him to arrive in Australia in the future because players and officials must arrive within 36 hours starting on Thursday, and then quarantined for 14 days in accordance with the health agreement.
