Murray wants assurance on quarantine issues before US Open

Players want assurance that they’d not face necessary quarantine upon returning to Europe from the US Open before travelling to New York amid the COVID-19 pandemic, former world primary Andy Murray has said.

Organisers United States Tennis Association (USTA) will arrange a strict bio-security ‘bubble’ to minimise the danger of contracting the novel coronavirus throughout the Grand Slam, which shall be performed from August 31 to September 13.

The Western & Southern Open, which was relocated from Cincinnati this year due to COVID-19, may even be held in New York from Aug. 20-28 and can function a tune-up for the hardcourt Grand Slam. Mandatory quarantine would rule out gamers’ participation in different ATP and WTA claycourt occasions scheduled in Europe before the French Open from the top of September.

The two main claycourt occasions within the leadup to Roland Garros are in Madrid (Sept. 13-20) and Rome (Sept. 20-27). While Spain doesn’t require necessary quarantine, Italy would wish travellers to quarantine for 14 days if coming from the U.S. The USTA has said the organisers are working with related authorities to resolve issues.

“My understanding is that it would be sorted before we go to America. But things can change in the next 10 to 12 days,” Murray instructed British media. “Hopefully before we leave, the players will have the assurances that, when they come back from America, they won’t have to quarantine for two weeks. If that is the case, and if you do well in the US Open, you can’t just arrive on the Sunday before the French Open starts on the Monday. That’s not going to work.”

Unites States has over 4.68 million confirmed instances of COVID-19 with greater than 155,000 deaths. Murray, a three-times Grand Slam winner, has not performed competitively since November as a result of hip issues however took half in some exhibition occasions not too long ago with the professional circuit shut. The 33-year-old said he’s keen to take the journey “risk” as he missed enjoying in huge occasions.

“The situation I’ve been in the last few years, I’ve not had opportunity to play in many Slams. I don’t know how many I’ll have left,” Murray said. “So, while I’m feeling relatively decent … obviously there is a risk there, but I want to try and play in them and enjoy the biggest events again.”
