Australian Open officials once again look to have more issues to deal with after a number of players took to social media to voice their displeasure at the food being provided in their quarantine hotel.
On a day where it was revealed that a plane full of players and staff was forced into strict quarantine after two people on-board a chartered flight tested positive for coronavirus, the hotel food is now the latest hurdle plaguing the upcoming February tournament.
Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta, who’s currently ranked at No.15 in the world, took to his Instagram story with a picture of his food, adding “really?” in his post.
Italian star and world No.17 Fabio Fognini took a similar approach to Carreno Busta when he made it clear in his social media post that he hoped next time would be a better serving of food.
For Frenchman Benoit Paire, the current world No.28 opted for delivery instead and went for a McDonald’s delivery order.
Around 1200 elite international players and their support staff are set to arrive in Melbourne to begin their 14-day quarantine periods ahead of the tournament on which is scheduled to begin on February 8.
Hundreds have already arrived since Thursday, flying in on chartered flights organised by the Australian Open.
All Australian Open players and officials must return a negative COVID-19 test before boarding a flight to Australia.
