    The draw will take place on January 20, when the 12 teams will be divided into four groups of three for group stage, round-robin play. The four group winners will advance to the semi-finals.

    GOOD LUCK TEAM SPAIN

    • Yes, good luck to team Spain including Rafa, RBA, Marcel Granollers, and PCB.

      Serbia
      Austria
      Russia
      Greece
      Germany
      Argentina
      Italy

  2. There are rumblings from permanent tenants of the The Westin Hotel in Victoria where tennis players are set to quarantine when they arrive for the start of the 2021 Australian tournaments.

    According to reports, tenants were not consulted nor were they notified until late December. They don’t want tennis players from all over the world staying at The Westin and possibly bringing the virus with them.

  3. From the ATP TOUR website.

    “The ATP has concluded its investigation regarding Sam Querrey, initiated following a breach of COVID-19 protocol at the 2020 St. Petersburg Open.

    The investigation reviewed the full circumstances surrounding the incident and concluded Mr. Querrey’s conduct to be contrary to the integrity of the game under the Player Major Offense provision in the ATP Code of Conduct. As a result, the ATP has issued a fine of US$20,000.

    Taking into consideration Mr. Querrey’s many years of otherwise good standing with the ATP and other mitigating factors, the fine is suspended and will be lifted subject to Mr. Querrey committing no further breaches of health and safety protocols related to COVID-19 within a probationary six-month period. The player has five days to appeal the decision, should he choose to do so.”

    I am not surprised by the lenient sanction. From everything I read, I felt there was the high possibility of miscommunication between Querry and the Russians. For its part, the ATP had to, at the least, levy a fine.

  4. Happy New Year to all the contributors on here. Stay safe and well….this virus I think is here to stay for many more months.
