Alcaraz, Nadal's heir, also confined

The Murcian and his coach remain isolated at their Melbourne hotel. So is the Spaniard Vilella, who was traveling on the same plane.


Carlos Alcaraz, his coach, Juan Carlos Ferrero, and also the Spanish player Mario Vilella remain confined in the rooms of their hotel in Melbourne, after detecting a positive covid on the flight in which they traveled from Doha to the capital of the state of Victoria .

Qatar Airways flight QR7485 registered a case, and following the recommendations of the Government of Victoria, passengers must remain 14 days isolated. Although the three mentioned had negative tests, they had to confine themselves in their rooms. One of them, contacted by EFE, has indicated that they are speaking with the director of the tournament, to follow instructions, and that this period of isolation could be reduced.

This new case shakes the tournaments that are scheduled to be played on Australian soil, the ATP Cup and the Open. The Australian authorities strongly defend the measures against covid-19 adopted for tennis players and members of their team upon arrival in the country to participate in the Open.

It has recently been verified that at least four people have tested positive on some of the flights from abroad and in which some of the athletes were traveling, who are now forced to spend the two weeks of quarantine without leaving their room and without the possibility of training . One of these athletes is the Spanish Paula Badosa, whose flight also traveled with fellow WTA circuit partners such as Angelique Kerber, Sorana Cirstea, Belinda Bencic and Maria Sakkari, among others.
