Former world number one Andy Murray may miss out on the Australian Open.
Murray recently tested positive for COVID-19 and is in doubt of participating in the event.
The 33-year-old was set to fly out to Melbourne on a chartered flight arriving there over the next 36 hours.
Instead he remains in quarantine and isolating at home in London.
Murray, who is said to be in good health, remains hopeful he will be allowed to travel safely at a later date and compete as planned.
The five-time Australian Open runner-up pulled out of last week’s ATP event as he wanted to minimize the risks of catching a transatlantic flight to Florida.
The Australian Open will start on 8 February at Melbourne Park, three weeks later than usual, because of the coronavirus pandemic.
