`This place is like a prison, only there is more wifi,` Roberto Bautista Agut shared with Israel News channel about the quarantine at the Australian Open, on January 19.

Tennis player Bernard Tomic holds a racket in his hotel room while quarantined.

In the first two days of the quarantine period, 47 tennis players were forced to stay in their rooms all day, because some of their flights had positive cases of nCoV.

1,200 people have arrived in Melbourne over the past three days for the first Grand Slam of the year.

Djokovic waves to fans from the hotel balcony.

Craig Tiley, Director of the Australian Open, affirmed that there are no plans to shorten matches in the men’s singles event because of the epidemic.

`We know there are inconveniences. But people have to accept that,` Tiley added.

Djokovic is not part of the completely quarantined group and still goes to the court to practice five hours a day.

`We have a global pandemic and there is no guidebook on how to quarantine without problems,` former Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka wrote on Twitter.
