Tennis player Murray skips tournament in US as a precaution

Tennis player Andy Murray has signed out again for the Delray Beach ATP tournament. The former number 1 in the world accepted a wild card last week for the tournament in Florida, which will be held next week. In the run-up to the Australian Open, Murray does not want to run the risk of becoming infected with the corona virus and therefore avoids Delray Beach.

“Given the increase in the number of Covid infections and the transatlantic flights that I would otherwise have to make, I am not participating. I want to minimize the risks in the run-up to the Australian Open,” said the 33-year-old Scot. the British media.

Murray also received a wild card for the Australian Open last weekend, the first grand slam tournament of the year that has been moved from January to February due to the corona measures. Participants must first be quarantined for two weeks upon arrival in Melbourne. The Australian Open, the tournament in which Murray reached the final five times, starts on February 8.
