Andy Murray to miss Australian Open after quarantine problems

Andy Murray will miss the Australian Open. The tennis star has failed to find a "workable quarantine" after he recovered from coronavirus. The former world number one is out of self-isolation but could not find a solution to the logistical challenge of getting to Australia and then quarantining ahead of the grand slam which starts on February 8. Murray said: "Gutted to share that I won't be flying out to Australia to compete at the Australian Open. We've been in constant dialogue with Tennis Australia to try and find a solution which would allow some form of workable quarantine, but we couldn't make it work. I want to thank everyone there for their efforts, I'm devastated not to be playing out in Australia. It's a country and tournament that I love." The Scot, a five-time runner-up in Melbourne, was unable to travel on one of the charter flights laid on by tournament organisers after recording a positive test. Murray had hoped to arrive in Melbourne at a later date, but could not come to an agreement over quarantine.
