“I think the decision to postpone was absolutely inevitable,” the official told reporters.
“It allows us to focus on real clarity on the summer ahead.”
“We just want to see two great events go ahead, whether it´s ´21 or ´22 in Australia I´m sure we´ll put on a fantastic event,” he said.
“It now just gives you a very clear gap between the various things, plus it helps us also make sure that we can plan the events… ensuring the health and safety for all the people concerned,” he said.
“It´s been a challenging time for everyone… thankfully, we´re not talking about losing any events at all,” he said.
“It´s really a case of them being held off until we can stage them successfully.”
“It goes back to safety and working with the latest and best available information,” he said.
“It comes down to risk and giving ourselves as much certainty as possible.”
“I think that a two-week quarantine period is pretty well defined,” Hockley said.
“What we´re working on is that even within that quarantine environment the players will have the absolute best training facilities, so their preparation for the matches is optimal as it can possibly be.”
