This is quite surprising as Bundesliga started this weekend and Co-vid 19 is in decline phase in Germany. In Austria the pandemic situation is regarded currently as under control. So why not to try with some limitation, i.e. only for European players travelling from countries with Co-vid 19 in decline or getting them checked thorougly after crossing the border?

Because most of these tournaments depend on tickets sales and on shops and stores which rent areas around the venue etc. So they need spectators to not make the tournaments a losing bargain, especially when they have to hand tennis players prize money

The tennis players need to travel

Football players live there

Tennis cannot be sustained on tv advertisements alone.
I think Bundesliga can afford it.
Also the number of foreigners participating in a tennis tournament makes it unfeasible with most nations stopping the travel of foreigners within their nations

‘Only for European players for countries in covid decline’ isn’t a very good plan for an ATP World Tour tournament
