Australian Minister of Immigration Alex Hawke spoke about the conditions under which tennis players will receive a visa to Australia and be able to take part in the Australian Open Tennis Championships.
“Our medical board has decided that after the border opens, everyone who wants to come to Australia will have to get a double vaccination.” According to the source, 35 percent of male players are not fully vaccinated, while the figure for women is 40%. However, many of them are going to be vaccinated in the off-season. The question remains about Novak Djokovic, who is an opponent of vaccination.
ATP and WTA have previously waived mandatory vaccinations. Note that at the recent US Open and Indian Wells Masters, viewers had to confirm at least one vaccination, while there were no such restrictions for players. In Indian Wells, children under 12 were not allowed into the stadium. Do you want more sports news and keep abreast of events? Subscribe to our portal updates right now.
