British Tennis Player Heather Watson Runs 5K in Her Hotel Room

Staying fit during lockdown is hard enough but for 72 professional tennis players, their final preparations for the Australian Open are taking place in hotel rooms after passengers on their flights tested positive for coronavirus.

Despite Novak Djokovic appealing that the players in question be allowed to move to private homes with tennis courts, where they could train and to visit their coaches, the premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, has said today the players will get ‘no special treatment’.

“The virus doesn’t treat you specially, so neither do we,” Andrews said. ‘I know there’s been a bit of chatter from a number of players about the rules. The rules apply to them as they apply to everybody else and they were all briefed on that before they came and that was the condition on which they came.

“So there’s no special treatment here.”

Players have been coming up with innovative ways to stay fit during their lockdown, with GB tennis player, Heather Watson, sharing footage of herself completing a 5K in her hotel room.
