The final request from Djokovic is for players to be moved to private houses with access to tennis courts.

That last demand would appear unlikely given the number of players being forced to isolate as well as the complexity of arranging such measures with short notice.

But Commissioner for COVID-19 quarantine in Victoria, Emma Cassar, insists there will be no exceptions to the quarantine measures put in place.

“The rules of close contacts haven’t changed, and there’s no other way you can consider this. If you’re on a plane for 16 to 24 hours in air that circulates throughout the plane, you are a close contact,” she said.

“The program is set up to keep people safe. We will not be modifying the program or watering it down under any circumstances.”
