Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia has been confined like all other tennis players at the Rafael Nadal Academy in Manacor, Spain and says she has not experienced anything like the shutdown in her life before. Speaking to L'Equipe, Garcia says, “I try to accept things as they are, to the best of my ability, to put priorities one behind the other.
But sometimes you tell yourself it's unreal. In the morning and in the evening, I feel like I'm in a movie. I never thought I would live a period like this in my life. " Garcia talks about her time at the Nadal academy.
"It is a small village on the island of Mallorca. There are fewer cases here. There is containment, but it is much quieter than some big cities in Europe. We're safe, we're fine here, we wouldn't be better elsewhere.
It's a little more Zen, a little quieter,." The 26 year old says she is trying to remain fit as well as keep busy by doing daily chores like cooking, cleaning and also doing puzzles and hopes the quarantine period is lifted soon so that everyone can get back to normal life.
Garcia has won seven singles and six doubles titles on the WTA tour, one singles and one doubles title on the WTA 125K series, and has one singles and four doubles titles on the ITF Women's Circuit in her career so far. She has also peaked at No. 2 in the doubles rankings.
