Andy Murray sees Australian Open hopes fall into disarray after testing positive for coronavirus

Andy Murray has seen his hopes of kickstarting his career at the Australian Open be dealt a huge blow after he tested positive for coronavirus.

The three-time Grand Slam champion was due to fly to Melbourne this week to begin his mandatory 14-day quarantine before the tournament gets underway on February 8th.

However, those plans are now in tatters, with Murray self-isolating at home instead with minor symptoms.

His hopes of making the first Grand Slam of the season are not completely over, though.

Murray has reportedly been self-isolating for a few days already, and it is believed tournament officials are trying to provide as much leeway as possible.

The former world number one has an already storied history with the Australian Open, where he has been a beaten finalist five times before announcing, prematurely as it turned out, his imminent retirement back in 2018 before career-saving hip surgery.
