British No. 1 Johanna Konta says she is looking forward to getting back to some normality after two weeks in quarantine.

“This has definitely been a very different Australia trip so far but the end is in sight for our quarantine period,” Konta said.

“I am actually in the lucky group that is able to go out for five hours a day to practice, we have about two hours court time, an hour and a half gym time and then an hour to get food and basically get ready to come back.

“I have been very lucky, we have a number of players here who unfortunately have to be in hard lockdown, meaning they haven’t left their rooms for about 12 days now.

“One of them is Heather so I have been trying to check in with her but she is doing a phenomenal job in making the best of a tough situation.

“It is a very different experience, it is not something I have experienced before and hopefully I won’t have to do too much of this again in the future.

“Even for us lucky ones in the first five days we weren’t allowed out while things were getting sorted for us to be able to go and practice.

“Even those five days for me were tough so I can only imagine what Heather is feeling on day 11 or 12, whatever she is on. All credit to her.”
