While 72 players are sitting through a strict quarantine in Melbourne, everyone else gets to leave their rooms for five hours a day. They've soaked up the sunshine Down Under by posting from the signature blue courts of Melbourne Park. Though they aren't allowed inside the facilities just yet, that isn't bringing them down from enjoying the courts and fitness tents.
Here's a look at who's been taking advantage:
Donna Vekic and Ajla Tomljanovic
Alex de Minaur and Cam Norrie
Corentin Moutet and Kamil Majchrzak
Borna Coric and Marin Cilic
While practice looks normal, there are stringent protocols in place to ensure player safety. They only leave the room when an escort shows up to take them to the courts, and cannot mingle with players that are not their established practiced partner. An escort also takes them to their outdoor fitness tent and sees them back to their room once the five hours is up. The good news is everyone is more than halfway through and once freed, they'll enjoy the most normalcy they have in months.
