Nick Kyrgios joined plenty of Twitter users in criticising Novak Djokovic after the Serbian world number one tennis player reportedly wrote to Tennis Australia organisers asking them to ease quarantine restrictions for players.

Passengers who arrived on three charter flights for the Australian Open have been placed into hard quarantine, including more than 70 players who are unable to train outside their rooms for 14 days before the year’s first Grand Slam starts on February 8.

A Spanish tennis website reported that Djokovic wrote to Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley with a list of “demands”, asking for reduced isolation periods and having players moved to “private houses with tennis courts”.

“This is the situation that we’re dealing with. I can’t wait to get out of quarantine just so I can get my hair done.”

Twenty-five-year-old Kyrgios, who has railed at tennis players who have breached COVID-19 protocols since the start of the pandemic, was not amused.
