Kazakh star Yulia Putintseva has been vocal about her time in hard quarantine ahead of the Australian Open and has yet again called out Rennae Stubbs and the conditions she is in.

With a string of players barred from training for a fortnight in a major setback to their Australian Open preparations, stars were left fuming over the change of plans.

Putintseva was said if it was made clear to her about the rules on the chartered flights, she may have opted out of the tournament before travelling to Australia.

She also made headlines after taking to social media to complain about her hotel conditions after she appeared to film a mouse running around her hotel room.

“Been trying to change the room for a 2 hours already,” she wrote.

“And no one came to help due to quarantine situation.”

But in an unwanted twist, just three days later and a new hotel room, has yet again filmed a mouse entering her room.

The Kazakh star also hit out at Aussie tennis great Stubbs after she called for tennis players to stop complaining about the quarantine.

“What are you even talking about? One week is enough to prepare for the grand slam when you spend 14 days in your room playing with the wall? Well For doubles probably yes, but for singles doesn’t work that way,” she wrote.

Fans on social media showed compassion with Putintseva after having already moved rooms because of the rodents.

However, she still came under fire for her protest earlier in the day.

The tennis star held up a cardboard sign and on social media wrote: “We need fresh air to breathe.”

But many on social media told her to stop complaining and to understand the situation she in after coming to Melbourne.
