Simona Halep Gets Ready For Australian Open 2021 ‘If It’s A Bubble Like It Was In Paris’

As the coronavirus cases and fear of the worst pandemic is rising, players are also terrified and want to follow proper safety measures. Australia is one of the places where strict coronavirus measures have been taken. There’s tight control on borders, and the quarantine measures are severe enough to avoid the increase of cases.

As the Australia 2021 season is upcoming, strict measures and restrictions are being planned for the players. Proper bio-secure “bubbles” are being designed for all the players. Moreover, the bubbles would be in different cities to safely travel between venues, practices, etc.

Talking about the quarantine measures in Australia, Simona Halep said, “I think that in Australia it’s going to be 14 days’ [quarantine], but it’s going to be a bubble.”

Further, Simona Halep believes that the fourteen days of isolation will definitely suffer the player’s on-court performance during the matches. The two-times Grand Slam champion also explained the conditions are the same as Paris; she would be ready to participate in the Melbourne major event.

Although she went on to say, “So it’s not that you have to stay 14 days just in a room – because if you do that, you cannot play after 14 days without training. But if it’s a bubble-like it was in Paris, I’m open, and I’m going.”

Moreover, Tennis Australia has not confirmed the schedule of programs. The Australian Open will start on January 18, 2021. The speculating news is stating that the players are planning to fly in December.

Simona Halep also commented on when she is leaving, “It depends on what I decide to play,” Romanian said. “I have no idea whether I will play the first tournament. We’ll see. It’s too early.”
