An Australian tennis star confined to hotel quarantine has hit back at fellow players whingeing about the conditions by poking fun at their complaints in a new and very funny video.
About 72 players are unable to practice or leave their hotel rooms for 14 days after they arrived on one of three chartered flights with an infected case of coronavirus on board.
Australian doubles player Ellen Perez is also in hotel quarantine for two weeks after she was left stranded in the Middle East last weekend after she reported having a runny nose before boarding one of the charter flights but has since tested negative.
Despite the lockdown Perez has taken it all in her stride and her humorous post mocking players who have been complaining has gone viral.
“Hey guys, it’s been a massive first day of quarantine for me,” she says.
“My body is just aching and there is no better way to recover than a recovery swim.”
Perez then gets into the bath fully-clothed and begins pokes fun at Yulia Putintseva’s complaints about the lack of fresh air and Bernard Tomic’s girlfriend Ms Sierra being forced to wash her own hair.
“It is just so hard to breathe in here. There’s no air. I can’t live like this. I can’t do this. And, look at my hair. I’m going to have to wash it on my own now. What a disaster this is.”
