The Coronavirus emergency has stopped the whole world of sport: many are the champions who have decided to shut themselves up at home for prevention in this pandemic period, to make themselves and their loved ones safe. The arrival of the virus in the United States now worries Serena Williams who has decided to go into quarantine.
"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’. 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. 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" - Williams said. Serena is concerned about the health of her little daughter: “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”.
