Djokivic watches young tennis players from hotel balcony

Novak Djokovic will join Serena Williams, Naomi Osaka and Rafael Nadal playing a pre-Australian Open warm-up exhibition in Adelaide after serving their quarantine in the South Australian city, Tennis Australia (TA) said.

More than 70 players and their entourage are confined to their hotel rooms for 14 days and unable to train for the February 8 - 21 Australian Open after passengers on three chartered flights returned positive tests for the coronavirus. The Serbian world number one is not in this group of players. Some players have complained about the conditions, while Djokovic sent governing body Tennis Australia requests for quarantine restrictions to be eased, drawing a backlash from Australians.
