Dominic Thiem: It would be unfair to cancel the Australian Open now

After coming close to winning the Australian Open in 2020, Dominic Thiem is preparing to try again to win the Happy Slam from the quarantine in Adelaide. In an interview with Eurosport Germany, Austrian Dominic Thiem commented on quarantine conditions in Australia.

“Crazy times, but that was to be expected. In Australia, the quarantine is even stricter, and it’s understandable. They almost got rid of the coronavirus in their country and don’t want it to spread again. We are only allowed to practice a few hours a day, the rest of the time we spend in the hotel.

Of course, the 70 players who were on the plane with the infected are very upset. Such a long break will have a negative impact on their training, but they will have nine days after the quarantine ends. It’s unfortunate that they were so unlucky. But we all knew what we were getting into.

Sure, the conditions seem harsh, but other than those 70 people, the rest of us can train just fine. It would be unfair to cancel the tournament now that we have come such a long way. It was a personal decision of everyone, no one forced us. I hope the competition will take place.
