#AlohaAtHome With Fernando Verdasco
ATP Professional Tennis Player
How are you staying positive during quarantine?
We are trying to eat healthy and be as active as possible, doing exercise almost every day and trying to rest and have a good routine.
What are you most looking forward to doing after quarantine?
Spending time with family members and friends that I haven’t been able to see during quarantine.
How has the quarantine mixed up your usual routine? How have you adjusted?
At the beginning it was hard, I was lost and confused, but after a couple of weeks I tried to put positive thoughts in my mind to get motivation and see things from another perspective. It really changed my routine, as it changed for almost everyone around the world.
What acts of kindness have you witnessed recently in your community?
Watching people help others even when putting their lives at risk. Trying anything to help, like making masks inside their homes with any kind of material.
What will you miss most about Wimbeldon this year?
Everything! It’s possibly the most beautiful tournament in the world and not playing is sad, but for now, the most important thing is for everyone to be safe.
Have you been able to train while at home?
I have been able to do things like some cardio, some weights, and hitting a ball against the wall, but obviously, I cannot train like I normally do.
