"It's unlikely that unvaccinated players can play at the Australian Open but for me it's not a problem." says Alexander Zverev
Alexander Zverev has been one of the players unwilling to discuss vaccines and vaccination in general during the pandemic. The German's previous words on the matter have put him on the side of players skeptical of the vaccine however in a recent interview the German hinted that he has been already vaccinated or that he will be by January.
Speaking on the Australian Open Zverev said:
"It's unlikely that unvaccinated players can play at the Australian Open. But for me it's not a problem."
The German is currently in Vienna preparing for the Erste Bank Open event that will be held in the final week of October. The German is part of a very strong field that includes other notable players such as Stefanos Tsitsipas and more.
The German did not offer any more detail than the above quote but it seems to paint a rather clear picture. Zverev was either vaccinated already or he will be by the time the Australian Open comes along. Either way, it's becoming pretty clear that we will see him at the Australian Open, just like Tsitsipas who will also get vaccinated.
