Kooyong Classic cancelled due to uncertainty over vaccination requirements

The Kooyong Classic, a popular warm-up event for the Australian Open, has been cancelled due to some uncertainty over player health guidelines.

Tournament organizers stated the lack of clarity over Covid-19 guidelines for players led to the event cancellation, making it the second straight year that the event has been cancelled due to the pandemic.

“With the great deal of uncertainty over recent months about the arrangements that would be in place in January, it has not been possible to make the best plans to deliver the best and safest sporting event,” said Kooyong president Adam Cossar.

Players are still awaiting clarification on whether they are required to be fully inoculated to play at the Australian Open. There have been rumors of unvaccinated players being completely banned from the event, whereas a leaked WTA email suggested those who have not received the vaccine could participate after serving a two-week hotel quarantine.
