Women’s tennis icon Serena Williams was interviewed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and he described Australia’s strict quarantine as “crazy and super intense” but endorsing it ruthlessly.
Williams, 39, is close to ending the 14-day confinement and taking to the court to face Naomi Osaka in an exhibition match in Adelaide on Friday.
“Australia, from the last I heard, zero cases of COVID. So that’s incredible. It’s really amazing,” he said before the first consultation.
Williams has been living in an Adelaide hotel with her three-year-old daughter Olympia. “It’s definitely hard to be around a three-year-old girl every day at all hours but it’s worth it because you want everyone to be safe at the end of the day.”
The American hopes to match Australia’s Margaret Court’s record of 24 Grand Slam titles with another victory in Melbourne. It’s all you expect after the quarantine ends. It’s everything you dream of.
