Andy Murray advocates players should be required to take a Coronavirus vaccine for the health and safety of the pro tour.
The former world No. 1 said taking a vaccine should “probably” be mandatory for players on the pro circcuit—and he believes playes would be receptive to taking a shot to continue playing.
“I’m confident that players would be into it if it meant the tour going back to normality,” Murray told the British media. “I guess we’re not going to know the long-term effects potentially for a while. But what I’ve been hearing on the TV and on the news is that there shouldn’t really be any long-term effects.”
Though world No. 1 Novak Djokovic has expressed concerns about taking a vaccine, Murray suggested the 17-time Grand Slam champion has revised his thinking on a COVID-19 vaccine.
“I read a few weeks after he’d said he wouldn’t be keen on doing it that, if it was something that had to be done for him to play the sport, he would,” Murray said.
