Jan-Lennard Struff (ATP 44), who will finish his second round at the Munich ATP tournament on Thursday, has spoken negatively about the lives of the players on the circuit in the margins of the Bavarian tournament. Due to the corona pandemic, they are forced to stay in ‘bubbles’.
“You feel trapped, almost like in a prison,” the world’s number two German told local media.
Struff is fortunate to have his family admitted to his bubble in Munich. “We arrived here together in one bubble. That allows me to spend an hour a day with my son. It’s not much, but it’s still something. ”
The 31-year-old German also came back to life in Australia during the Australian Open at the beginning of this season. There the players were allowed to move freely after a mandatory quarantine. “That was fantastic. You felt once again how beautiful life is. ”
