Spanish tennis had qualified 15 players (11 men and four women) for the Australian tour. However, at the last minute, you may be without one of them. Alejandro Davidovich, as BreakPoint said yesterday, tested positive for coronavirus on January 7 without having symptoms of the disease except for the first night. The man from Malaga tested positive again two days ago so he could not catch the flight to Melbourne with the rest of his teammates.
Jorge Aguirre, his coach, was also infected on the same dates. Both, isolated for a week, today undergo a third rapid PCR test to see if they have finally been released from 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 entry beyond January 16 and that it was only possible to land on the Aussie ground with a flight chartered by the organization. But it is that in Davidovich’s situation there are also Nicolas Massu, Dominic Thiem’s coach, and Andy Murray.
All three cases are on the table of Craig Tiley, the top leader of Tennis Australia who is negotiating with local authorities to find some kind of solution. Alejandro, who resides in Fuengirola is officially the fourth positive in Spanish tennis after Fernando Verdasco, Marcel Granollers, and Roberto Carballes
