Novak Djokovic says there is a growing view among players that the 2021 tennis season will be unviable if they have to quarantine for 14 days before each tournament. The world number one-ranked men’s player has raised the possibility of staging the rest of the year’s major tournaments in a single location, and contends that the issue must be addressed quickly given that the season has begun. Djokovic adds that players had accepted the Australian Open quarantine measures as it is a grand slam, but notes that many ATP tournaments in 2021 will have reduced prizemoney.

Australian tennis legends such as Neale Fraser and Pat Cash has criticised the International Tennis Federation’s proposal for a major overhaul of the Davis Cup tournament. Although the trophy would still be called the Davis Cup, the tournament itself would be renamed the World Cup of Tennis Finals. It would played at a neutral venue over one week in November rather than the traditional format of home-and-away ties for each competing nation. In addition, each match would feature just three sets instead of the five at present.
