Andy Murray, a Scottish tennis player and two-time Wimbledon champion, has tested positive for COVID-19.


According to BBC, the former world number one is currently isolating at his Surrey home, casting doubts as to whether he will participate in next month’s Australian Open.

The 33-year-old Scott who is said to be in good condition had been due to fly down to Australia this week to complete a two-week quarantine before the first Grand Slam of the season on February 8.

Murray is now faced with the challenge of arriving in Australia in time to complete the quarantine.


The three-time Grand Slam winner had planned to return to action at the Delray Beach Open last week but pulled out just days after announcing he had received a wildcard.

Special charter flights carrying players and coaches, flying at only 25 percent capacity, have started to leave for Australia.

Strict COVID-19 protocols state that all players must return a negative test prior to boarding their flight and everyone is tested on arrival and isolated until results are received.


During the two-week quarantine, players and their teams will be tested every day while being allowed to train for five hours a day.
