The highly anticipated Day at the Drive in Adelaide is fast approaching, prompting discussions on the 8 tennis superstars’ movements.

With the world-class event set to have international eyes on Adelaide, the pressure is on to ensure necessary COVID safety precautions are in play.

The players, including Serena Williams (USA), Rafael Nadal (ESP) Novak Djokovic (SRB), Dominic Thiem (AUT), Simona Halep (ROU) and Naomi Osaka (JPN), will be undergoing their mandatory 2-week quarantine in their own PRIVATE medi-hotel.

They will have train access to Memorial Drive for training and practice.

Tennis SA CEO Debbie Sterrey told Adelaide International: “A Day at the Drive will be a truly star-studded field and presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the South Australian public to see some of these tennis players right here in our own backyard.

These Gland Slam stars will be treated to a luxurious quarantine experience compared to ‘ordinary people’ quarantine.

But either way, they will have daily tests, are to be confined to their rooms for the two weeks and the emergency exits are alarmed in case someone decides to do a runner.

A Day at the Drive will be on Friday 29 January and tickets will be on sale soon via Ticketmaster.

Keep up to date with the exhibition on their Facebook page.
