He has been coy about his Covid-19 vaccination status, but Daniil Medvedev has signaled that he intends to compete at next year’s Australian Open.

The Russian has refused to disclose if he has been vaccinated and, with Victoria Premier Dan Andrews insisting that only double vaxxed players will be allowed to take part in the hard-court Grand Slam at Melbourne Park, it put a big question mark over his participation.

However, just days after finishing runner-up to Novak Djokovic at the Paris Masters, Medvedev tweeted: “See you in January! ❤@AustralianOpen”.

Although there have been mixed messages from officials in Australia with regards to visas for unvaccinated players, Andrews insisted on Tuesday stuck to his guns.

“I’m not going to have people sitting in the grandstands having done the right thing, only to have millionaire players, [who] ought to be vaccinated, running around the place being essentially at such a higher risk of spreading this,” Andrews said.

“As far as the Australian Open goes, I’m not going to have unvaccinated people unable to buy a ticket while unvaccinated players move their way around Melbourne Park.”
