Australian Open tuneup matches on Thursday cancelled due to COVID-19 | Tennis News


MUMBAI: Thursday’s matches at Australian Open tuneup events at Melbourne Park were cancelled after a hotel quarantine worker tested COVID-19 positive, organisers Tennis Australia said.
Up to 600 players and support staff connected to the Australian Open will have to isolate until they have been tested after a man, who worked his last shift at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Melbourne on Friday, returned a positive result on Wednesday.
“We will work with everyone involved to facilitate testing as quickly as possible,” the organisers of the Feb. 8-21 Grand Slam said on Twitter.
“There will be no matches at Melbourne Park on Thursday. An update on the schedule for Friday will be announced later today.”
