A day in the life of your average tennis star got turned upside down this week in Melbourne when dozens were determined to be close contacts of a positive COVID-19 test—sending players like Paula Badosa into strict quarantine for 14 days.
The hitherto surging Spaniard, who ended 2020 with an impressive run to the fourth round of Roland Garros, has tried not to let the stressful start to her Australian summer get the best of her, as she checked in to take over the Tennis Channel Instagram.
“I don’t want to lose my routines, even though I’m stuck in the room!” the 23-year-old explained before ordering avocado toast from UberEats.
In between yoga stretches and shadow swings, Badosa took time to unwind—crowdsourcing Netflix recommendations and catching up with a book.
“I know it’s a little boring because there isn’t too many things I can do in the room,” she said as she signed off, “but I’m trying to stay active.”
