Looking forward to a good beginning in the 2021 season, Former World No.1 has scheduled to resume his tour from the Down Under Grand Slam event. For this reason, the 33-years-old Brit cancelled his participation at Delray Beach Open due to health risks.
Before leaving for Melbourne, the Scot had tested positive for the Coronavirus. Consequently, the two-time Olympic Gold medalist could not board on the particular charter flights for the Australian Open 2021, set to take place from 8th February.
However, mother Judy Murray has revealed that five times Aussie Open runner-up is now out of home quarantine and hopes her son could resume training sooner.
“He’s doing okay. I think he gets out today. So he can resume some training.” Former Fed Cup captain Judy Murray said in a recent interview.

The first Grand Slam event would take place typical than usual with 14 days of mandatory quarantine. As a result, this year’s participants have now been under isolation in Melbourne and Adelaide.
The two-time Wimbledon champion has not officially withdrawn from the Melbourne major event. Still, if Andy Murray wants to play, he would need to pass COVID-19 test and need to get special permission from tournament authorities and complete 14 days of quarantine.
Judy Murray continued, “Then, of course, It’s a question of waiting and seeing whether he can fly out to Australia and take part. Nobody knows the answer to that one yet.”
However, we hope that Andy Murray will recover completely sooner and play at many more events in 2021.
