Cologne (dpa) – The two-time French Open double winners Kevin Krawietz and Andreas Mies would accept a two-week quarantine for participation in the Australian Open.
“If that’s the only way to play there, we have to do it that way,” said the 30-year-old Cologne tennis professional Mies of the “Bild” newspaper. “It should be in a resort so that you can also train. I don’t think we’ll just sit in the room for 14 days.”
The Australian Open is scheduled for January 18 to 31, 2021. According to the current status, the players would have to be in quarantine for two weeks after their entry. “We would play the ATP Cup and Adelaide beforehand,” said the 28-year-old Coburg Krawietz about the preparation plans: “That means we are not at home for Christmas, but in quarantine in Australia. We can also take accompanying persons with us in addition to trainers and physio . That works then. ” At the beginning of this year, the Australian Open was the only one of the four Grand Slam tournaments to take place as planned.
Two weeks ago, Krawietz and Mies repeated their French Open title from the previous year. This week, the two will compete at the ATP tournament in Cologne and will be in the semi-finals there.
