The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam tournament of the tennis season, will begin on February 8th 2021 and there is great anticipation for this sporting event. Before taking part in this tournament, tennis players will have to follow a strict quarantine and in recent days updates have also arrived on this: the city of Adelaide will host at least 50 players and staff during the quarantine period imposed by the Government before the Melbourne tournament and Tennis Australia has obtained, on the basis of an agreement with the South Australian government, that Adelaide will host the big names in men's and women's world tennis.
Also in Adelaide there will be a performance with the three best tennis players of the ATP and WTA circuits on 29 and 30 January, but before this performance these athletes will have to overcome the preventive isolation period with force.
No quarantine issues for Ashleigh Barty who is already Australian, resides there and is already there. These will be protagonists in this exhibition, then Nadal, Djokovic and Thiem will participate in the ATP Cup and then they will aim to win the first Grand Slam of the year where each of them starts with great ambitions.
Rafael Nadal's words on the pandemic
During the Spanish show Saber Vivir the Iberian tennis player Rafael Nadal talked about how he lived through that phase of his career marked by injuries. Here are his statements: "When problems accumulate the situation is no longer momentary but it remains in your head and you are disappointed by all these injuries.
But in the end I came back!" In the course of his career Rafael Nadal has reported problems with his shoulder, wrist, abdomen, ankle and knee, just to name a few of the problems that have stopped the Majorcan who, however, has not never resigned and has always returned to its levels, despite even a long-term stop.
In 2021 Rafael Nadal will try to win his third gold medal at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics and no man in the world of tennis has ever succeeded in the Open era. The greatest tennis stars on the planet, like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka, Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep and all the others, will come back for the upcoming Australian Open 2021, which will be held in Melbourne from 8 February: it will be the most awaited sports event of the first part of the new season.
It will be a very spectacualr season, and all of us hope without the problems of the last one, with some presence of the crowd in the courts across the world. Federer should come back on the court, for the joy of his fans, at the end of February or at the beginning of March after having announced that he will be skipping the Australian Open.
The new season has yet to begin but there is already a desire to put a disastrous 2020 behind us from all points of view and start the new year with the first Grand Slam of the year in the hope that the pandemic can slowly regress and bring back the planet to live seriously and also allow the world of sport to perform in front of the general crowd.
