It has been announced that the Kooyong Classic 2022 is cancelled
Due to foul play and agreements with tennis players, organizers were forced to cancel the Kooyong Classic 2022, says espn.com .
This is the second time in many years that the event has been canceled because of the pandemic, and the situation is now emerging from the final decision, so it affects players who are looking for some playing practice before the Australian Open Tennis Championships.
With no official data on the schedule of both players (despite of vaccination status) for the upcoming tournament, Koyong President Adam Kossar had no way to confirm a decision other than to cancel the event.
The statement said that all committee members are disappointed to have acted in this manner, but because of the enormously unstable circumstances over the past few months regarding events to be held, it was impossible to elaborate the steps to ensure the best and safest sports and hospitality for athletes, spectators, sponsors, broadcasters, participants and event staff.
The news was received critically by some players, who said that the athletes without vaccination should be allowed to attend the championship, for example, after a two-week quarantine.
As a result, the Minister of Sports and Major Events Martin Pacula said that the situation of inequality for unvaccinated and vaccinated participants was discussed, but nothing was predetermined.
