Just as she was getting ready to leave for Australia, American world No.16 Madison Keys tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the 2021 Australian Open.
The 25-year-old Keys trained hard in the off-season and is now really disappointed not to be able to join the tour in the coming weeks. The 2015 Australian Open semifinalist is currently self-isolating at home and we can suppose that she feels fine, as her Instagram post makes no mention of any symptoms she may be having.
Keys is looking forward to being back on tour next month.
The Australian Open starts on February 8th. Players will fly on chartered flights and arrive in Melbourne between January 15th and January 17th. When the last player arrives, a two-week quarantine will commence.
