Melbourne: The Unhappy Slam

Well it’s all started rather poorly down in Australia, hasn’t it? On this week’s Open Era, Simon and Devang dive into the current mess unfolding in Melbourne. More than 70 players, including Bianca Andreescu and Vasek Pospisil, will have to go through a strict 14-day quarantine in their hotel rooms before the Australian Open begins on February 8th. The guys talk about the how, why, what, and when, and the next steps for the ‘Happy Slam.’ Also this week: Sorana Cirstea, Yulia Putintseva, Hubert Hurkacz, Aryna Sabalenka and Sebastian Korda.
