Tennis players are said to be unwilling to go through two weeks of hotel quarantine again before the Australian Open if the nation’s international borders remain closed until mid-2022. It is believed that Tennis Australia is prepared to move the 2022 Australian Open to Doha or Dubai if it and the federal government cannot come to an agreement on less rigid quarantine arrangements. Melbourne’s Formula One grand prix will also need quarantine arrangements to be eased if it is to go ahead in November, after it was switched from March.
