Tennis pro Kevin Krawietz and his double partner Andreas Mies have arranged themselves with the strict Corona protection measures during the quarantine before the Australian Open in Melbourne.
“You are taking it really hard. But it is also understandable if you have as few cases as the Australians,”Krawietz said in an interview with”RTL/ntv”.
The two French Open winners, unlike Angelique Kerber, do not have to live in isolation in the hotel room. The German number one must remain in strict hotel isolation for positive-tested passengers on their flight to Australia like more than 70 other players and players 14 days in strict hotel isolation and must not train on the place.” We were lucky, we have five hours out of the day and enjoyed it very much today,”said Krawietz.
“Everyone has their own gym”
The tennis double uses the five hours for intensive training.” We were then picked up from the hotel room and led to training in fifth place, where we could then train for two hours. Everyone has their own gym, which we can use after our tennis team for another hour and a half. And you also have your own toilet, where place five is “that’s fun,” said the 28-year-old.
The Bayer finds it necessary to get used to the fact that players have to order their food for 14 days in advance.” I mean, I don’t know what I’m looking for on day ten,”said Krawietz, adding:”Every day the food is stopped at our door, it’s knocked for a while and then the good man is gone again.”
The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the season, should start on the 8th of February.
