After coming close to winning the Australian Open in 2020, Dominic Thiem is preparing to try again to win the Happy Slam from the quarantine in Adelaide. In an interview with Eurosport Germany, Austrian Dominic Thiem commented on quarantine conditions in Australia.
Of course, the 70 players who were on the plane with the infected are very upset. Such a long break will have a negative impact on their training, but they will have nine days after the quarantine ends. It’s unfortunate that they were so unlucky. But we all knew what we were getting into.
Sure, the conditions seem harsh, but other than those 70 people, the rest of us can train just fine. It would be unfair to cancel the tournament now that we have come such a long way. It was a personal decision of everyone, no one forced us. I hope the competition will take place.
