I am definitely torn as an Australian tennis fan (for real this time...)The thing is we don’t want any cases. Most states here no longer have community transmission (my state of 5 million hasn’t had it in over 60 days) we have just 10 active cases all in hotel quarantine. Even if one player brings Covid to a state it would be huge. The US and French Open’s didn’t care too much if they had a positive player like Paire or Moutet but it could end the tournament here in Aus. Our Victorian Premier has rightfully said our health and safety comes before tennis and I agree. I want the AO to happen so badly but it’s not worth it if it brings Covid back to our states. We went for eradication and we’ve got one of if not the best curve in the world for beating this virus. Many want to keep it that way.
I wanted to see the pros here but it is a risk...big risk...took us a lot of efforts to stay clear from Covid. Let's see how this one plays out.
