Mats Wheelander 360 degrees. The former Swedish top seed, now a Eurosport commentator, has given his opinion on the season that has just ended and the one that begins in January. Focus clearly on the Australian Open, the tournament that has chosen to exclude tennis players who have not been vaccinated against Covid from the draw:

“I think the Australian Open is doing what they have to do as the Australian government has decided that these will be the rules. It will be a big deal for the tournament if some unvaccinated players don’t participate, but there will also be other opportunities. I don’t know. What Novak Djokovic will do. Melbourne It’s his most successful Grand Slam and it would be the most natural place for him to break the deadlock 20 in a Grand Slam with Roger and Rafa. But at the same time I think Novak thinks about his health. He thinks so, I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Novak doesn’t go to Australia. Will it hurt Championship? Yes. But I think we are still in the Covid era and we should be grateful for every tournament that has been played. It has been a difficult year for the players and the organisers.”
