Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka is imploring her lock-downed tennis colleagues to show some empathy for Victorians.

Bautista Agut, who reached the Australian Open quarterfinals in 2019, said the conditions were taking a mental and physical toll on the players. They will not be allowed to leave their hotel rooms - with no exception - till January 29.

Players arriving from overseas for the Grand Slam tournament that begins February 8 must observe a 14-day quarantine.

What are the complaints from the players in quarantine? His latest duff chord was struck from the comfort of Adelaide, the business-class lounge of Australian Open quarantine venues.

However, those on flights with positive cases have been deemed "close contacts" and barred from leaving their hotels. "I don't think he has helped at all".

Romania's Sorana Cirstea rejected the notion that she and other players were "entitled".

A number of top players, including world number one Novak Djokovic, have questioned the need for mandatory hotel quarantine but Victoria premier Daniel Andrews said it was essential to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The others can train for up to five hours a day under strictly controlled conditions. But Djokovic asked organizers to move some players to houses with private courts, according to a 7News report. You could imagine a similar reaction here if Kyle Walker demanded nightclubs should open just for Premier League footballers.

"People are free to provide a list of demands". But the answer is no. That was very clearly laid out beforehand. "I can't really complain".

"The majority of the players have been absolutely fantastic and this is a playing group that's a little bit upset with what some others have said because it holds them in a bad light in the community", Tiley told reporters.

Some athletes, however, said they did not know what they were getting into before traveling to Australia, and criticized the lack of information ahead of arriving at the tournament.

"This is the contribution that they have to make in order to get the privilege of when they do come out to compete for $80 million Australian dollars ($62 million) in prize money". There's no special treatment here. The arrangements for the tennis are based on public health advice.

"Some players were very aware of it and some players were not.which may be a function of what they understood or what their perception was".

How many people have tested positive?

By Sunday, it was reported that at least five people had tested positive after arriving on the chartered flights. Bruneau was a passenger on a charter flight carrying 23 players from Abu Dhabi.
