Victorian Premier tells tennis players “there’s no special treatment here”

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews told tennis players on Monday (January 18) who are in hotel quarantine “there’s no special treatment here,” after it was reported world number one, Novak Djokovic asked to be moved to private housing.

Andrews made the comments after four more Australian Open participants, including one player, have been recorded with COVID-19 infections and more cases may come to light as testing continues.

Passengers on three Australian Open charter flights have now been sent into hard quarantine, including more than 70 players who are unable to train for 14 days ahead of the year’s first Grand Slam.

The year’s first Grand Slam is scheduled to begin on Feb. 8, which will give quarantined players one week of practice to get into shape.
