Daniil Medvedev in the photo
While the racket world remains concerned about the various players who have recently contracted coronavirus and are therefore currently stuck in their dorms (most recent Andrei Rublev), others are on their way to Australia or have just arrived. Among them are Daniil Medvedev, who welcomed his “landing” landing on social media, and Naomi Osaka, who posted a photo just before his departure. “See you in 16 hours,” the Japanese say. There have been doubts about her presence in Australia, given the complicated 2021 she has been through, but the reigning slam champion of the season has started on a regular basis and will be on the pitch in Melbourne.

Fortunately, Rafa Nadal appears to be in good shape after contracting Covid at the Abu Dhabi show. Majorkan posted a photo of him training with weights, and wrote, “I’m going back to physical training little by little.” Australian Open manager Craig Tiley said a few days ago that he was sure Nadal would be at the Australian Open.

Others are at home, ready to go to improve their condition and work on new schemes. Among them is young Danish Holger Ron, the protagonist of the recent NextGen Finals in Milan, who posted some of his Copenhagen training moments on Instagram.
