The pros have arrived Down Under to enter the two week quarantine ahead of the Australian Open and things are getting interesting. We’re serving up our favorite moments from life in lockdown!
Whether living the suite life or adjusting to more modest accommodations, the players are spending a lot of time in their hotel rooms. Some with their quaranteams and others with a few unwanted visitors. Fans saw Elina Svitolina give a tour of her two room suite and Diego Schwartzman stocking up on groceries, but it was the mouse in Yulia Putintseva’s room that had everyone squeaking on social media. Meanwhile American Frances Tiafoe isn’t letting lockdown spoil his good vibe.
With a Grand Slam on the horizon, the pros have their eyes on the prize, finding clever ways to stay fit. The internet was flooded with videos from Stefanos Tsitsipas, Jelena Ostapenko, Denis Shapovalov, Coco Gauff and so many more to show off their fancy footwork and how they’re utilizing the small living space to get the job done, proving a mattress can do in a pinch.
It isn’t all hard work and no play in quarantine. Tennis players gave fans a peek into their day in the most creative ways! WTA stars like Elina Svitolina and Heather Watson had a ball on TikTok but Pablo Cuevas seems to be the breakout star of this lockdown, spending his time entertaining us all.
Things are just getting started, so stay tuned for more wacky and wonderful coverage from Australia. Thanks for watching Outside the Ball!
