Tennis players are all having to get used to sitting at home with no tennis to play. The WTA, ATP and WTA Tours are all under suspension until June 7. Most players are undergoing quarantine at their respective homes. Serena Williams is entangled in a comical mental battle against the quarantine.

Williams is possibly one of the busiest women on the planet. When she isn’t practicing or playing tennis, she is usually busy with her off-court commitments, be it her baby girl, her fashion line or something else.

Is Serena Williams losing it?
The one thing Serena Williams is not used to is staying at home with pretty much nothing to do. What happens when an extensively busy person like Serena has to drop everything and do nothing for a few days?

Something hilarious, that’s what. Check it out for yourself. With just a few days into the Tour suspension, Williams is already struggling, and we are loving it!

Turns out, Serena is just as entertaining during quarantine as she is on the tennis courts.

As an added bonus, you can also watch Alex de Minaur losing his bonkers within 2 days of staying home. You can read all about it here.

Moreover, we also get to check out Coco Gauff and Naomi Osaka’s dance moves as they entertain us through these trying times.

Social Distancing is absolutely necessary in order to combat the spread of the COVID-19 disease. It is vital we all avoid any social gatherings or contact.

If you are bored staying at home too, you will also get some ideas to pass the time from Minaur or other players trying their hand (or feet) at challenges.

The Tour is scheduled to resume in June, during the grass-swing of the season. However, it is possible that the suspension period could be extended. It all depends on the situation on the coronavirus front in June.

“By Anxiety I Mean I’m Just On Edge”- Serena Williams Can’t Take The Quarantine Anymore

American tennis star Serena Williams is not having an easy time with the Coronavirus quarantine. While some introverted people seem to have gotten perfectly into the isolation mode, Serena is certainly not one of them. In fact, Serena revealed that this period of isolation was actually giving her a lot of anxiety.

She had made it clear in an Instagram post that she’ll be spending six weeks at home due to the Coronavirus crisis. However, in a TikTok post, she opened up on the difficulties of that kind of commitment. Starting initially with a sense of comfort at finding some free time, it quickly decelerated into tension.

The cancellation of tournaments has also had an adverse impact. Let’s learn from Serena herself about the devastating effects of quarantine.

What did Serena Williams say?
Serena said that the crisis started with her having confidence in her ability –

I wanted to take a minute and talk about my experience with corona. It started out with me feeling like, ‘Oh it can’t really affect me’.

However, as tournaments started getting called off, the gravity of the situation hit her like a bullet.

“And then suddenly Indian Wells was cancelled and I was like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s weird but I have a little time off and I’m going to enjoy that time off.

“And then one cancellation led to another and then led to another and led to all this anxiety that I’m feeling.”

Serena described that her behaviour had become one of overreaction. To every little thing, she has an extreme reaction –

“Now I’ve been social distancing for actually a really long time, for probably two weeks now, and every little thing makes me crazy.”

“And by anxiety I mean I’m just on edge. Any time anyone sneezes around me or coughs I get crazy. I don’t hang out with anyone, and when I say anyone I mean, my daughter.”

However, this was not out of any anger. Actually, Serena is concerned about the health of her little daughter. With the onslaught of the virus, this is an obvious reaction –

“She coughed, I got angry and gave her a side-eye. I gave her that ‘angry Serena’ and then I got sad.

“I was like, ‘Is she ok? Is there something wrong with my daughter? Is there anything I can do?’ I just don’t know what to do, so instead of being relaxed I’m really under a ton of stress.”

Honestly, we can all relate to Serena right now at some level. Obviously a little time alone is good. However, what we are looking at is a complete isolation for months. Truth be told, there are people like Serena for whom working is the essence of living.

Let’s hope that things get normal as quickly as possible.
