‘This is serious!’ – Serena Williams reveals drastic isolation plans to fight coronavirus
Serena Williams says she is taking ‘serious’ measures to fight the coronavirus pandemic, vowing to self-isolate for a mammoth six weeks at home.
Williams, like all WTA stars, have been sent home due to the next five weeks of tournaments being cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis.
And, communicating via her Instagram account, she says it’s not something she feels she can take lightly.
“Spending the next 6 weeks in solitude,” Williams said.
“Being a wife. Being a mom. Cooking. Cleaning. Spring cleaning. Face mask. Makeup tutorials.
“I’ll let you know how it goes…. stay safe everyone. This is serious.”
Williams hasn’t played since her shock early elimination from the Australian Open in January at the hands of China’s Wang Qiang.
She was scheduled to return for the Sunshine Double of Indian Wells and the Miami Open, but both were cancelled with both the WTA and ATP following the rest of the sporting world and erring very much on the side of caution.
