ESpanish tennis had classified 15 players (11 men and four women) for the Australian tour. However, at the last minute you may run out of one of them. Alejandro Davidovich, as Break Point said yesterday, tested positive for coronavirus on January 7 without symptoms of the disease except for the first night. The Malaga player again tested positive two days ago so he could not catch the flight to Melbourne with the rest of his companions.
Jorge Aguirre, his coach, It was also contagious on the same dates. Both, isolated for a week, today undergo a third rapid PCR test to see if they have finally freed themselves of the virus.
Whatever happens has started a time trial. The Australian Government made it very clear in the protocols that racket professionals would not be allowed to enter beyond January 16 and that it was only possible to land on ‘Aussie’ soil with a flight chartered by the organization..
But it is that in Davidovich’s situation there are also Nicolas Mass, Dominic Thiem’s coach, and Andy Murray. All three cases are on the table of Craig Tiley, Tennis Australia’s top leader who is negotiating with local authorities to find some kind of solution.
Alejandro, who resides in Fuengirola, is officially the fourth positive of Spanish tennis after Fernando Verdasco, Marcel Granollers and Roberto Carballs.
