Moments ago, the WTA Grampians Trophy Semifinal ended.

The high quality match ended with Estonian Anett Kontaveit winning 6-2, 3-6, 9-11, against Greece’s Maria Sakkari.

The two semi-finals were the last matches of the Grampians Trophy – a tournament created for players whose preparations were affected by being put in a 14-day hard hotel quarantine.

The final was not played due to the tournament’s delayed start.

“It was a very tough match,” Kontaveit said in her post-match press conference.

“I think Maria’s a very good player and she was coming out hitting the ball really well, and put me under a lot of pressure, and it was tough for me to get used to that speed in the beginning a little bit.

We will see Sakkari next week at the Australian Open.

Last days of strict quarantine in Melbourne, Maria Sakkari sweats it out

It was the ultimate workout with Greece’s Maria Sakkari and personal trainer Luke Zocchi.

Fans were treated to a special 30 minute HIIT workout session on Instagram Live, celebrating one of Sakkari’s last quarantine workouts.

“Thank you so much, Luke @zocobodypro! It was a pretty intensive workout but I loved it! Luckily I don’t have to do that everyday. 1 more day in quarantine, then back on the court! I can’t wait!” the tennis star posted.
