Daniil Medvedev: We will see what happens with my Australian Open participation

World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev doesn’t want to reveal whether he will play the Australian Open or not as he wants to keep his vaccination status private. A month ago, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews indicated that only vaccinated players would be allowed to play the Australian Open.

However, as it stands now, unvaccinated players will be allowed to play at the Australian Open but they will have to complete 14 days of hard quarantine. “Yeah, look, I want to play there. First, the rules were that you can come there, if you are not vaccinated, quarantine for 14 days.

So now it’s not the case. So it’s actually easy. We are going to see in Australia who is going to play or not. Of course, again, you can say you are injured, which can be true sometimes, but I’m willing to play Australia and that’s all I have to say,” Medvedev said when asked about the Australian Open.

Medvedev doesn’t want to reveal his medical records

“So I decided at one moment of my career, okay, I’m going to keep all my medical unless there is something obvious, so for example, if you are playing Australia, it’s obvious you are vaccinated.

So that’s why I said I’m willing to play Australia but I won’t say if you will see me there, but we are gonna see in January,” Medvedev added. In a recent interview, world No. 1 Novak Djokovic refused to reveal his vaccination status and said it was a private matter.

“Look, I really liked what Novak said the other day. Tennis is an individual sport and I never want to reveal medical information because my rivals would have information about my possible weaknesses. In this case it should be the same.

Vaccination is a decision personal and there is no reason to disclose information, I am not going to do it,” Medvedev said.
