Vanessa Sierra hits back at Nick Kyrgios who slammed her and her boyfriend Bernard Tomic

Vanessa Sierra has received death threats after her complaints about hotel quarantine garnered bathlash from Nick Kyrgios.   

Sierra and her boyfriend Bernard Tomic are among 72 tennis stars and their entourages currently in hard hotel lockdown after they were deemed close contacts of six Covid-infected passengers on charter flights into Melbourne. 

The affected players will be confined to their hotel rooms for the next 14 days, despite initially being told they would be able to leave for five hours a day to train. 

Sierra posted a video to YouTube complaining about hotel quarantine food, lack of cleaners, and not having access to a hairdresser. 

‘There is literally zero fresh air and no balcony,’ Sierra told her videos from her hotel room.

Sierra revealed she has been bombarded with death threats since she playfully complained about not having access to a hairdresser in hotel quarantine.

‘If people actually WATCHED my vlog instead of going off a news story with incorrect facts they would see I was lighthearted about the entire thing and did not make any complaints,’ she wrote on Instagram on Tuesday morning.

‘[I] simply did a daily vlog as I always do about my life and circumstances. I Didn’t realise how many idiots there are in this world.’

It comes after the notoriously outspoken Kyrgios quickly blasted Sierra on Twitter, saying: ‘I don’t mind Bernie but his Mrs obviously has no perspective, ridiculous scenes.’

Sierra's tongue-in-cheek complaints also gained the negative attention of former Labor leader Bill Shorten, who labelled her a 'pampered sook'

‘Love how the ones hating on me about a comment in a vlog which was taken out of context by channel 7, are completely unaware I gave away TENS of thousands of dollars to help people who were in need during COVID at Christmas,’ she wrote.

‘I did not ask a THING in return except for people to tell me their Christmas wishes so I could grant them and make their year a little brighter.

‘You guys are the true definitions of class clowns on a witch hunt and if I want to laugh about how bad my hair is in quarantine then I apologetically will. Have a cry.’ 

Sierra’s tongue-in-cheek complaints also gained the negative attention of former Labor leader Bill Shorten, who labelled her a ‘pampered sook’.  

‘Listen, I hadn’t heard of this lady Vanessa. But I googled her and I’m not sure she gets Covid and how serious it is,’ he told Karl Stefanovic and Ally Langdon on The Today Show on Tuesday. 

Mr Shorten said while he could appreciate that being cooped up in a hotel room would be hard, certain players ‘need to get a grip’.   

‘Covid’s been shocking. People have died, people have lost their jobs, people haven’t been able to go to the funerals of their loved ones and you’ve got these pampered sooks who are having a cry over their conditions,’ he said. 

‘They’re elite athletes, I can sympathise. But they get paid a lot of money to come to the Australian Open. Maybe they’ve just got to see how the rest of the world is putting up with Covid as well.’

Kyrgios, Australia’s tennis bad boy, also took aim at world No. 1 Novak Djokovic for issuing a list of six demands to tournament organisers.

‘Djokovic is a tool,’ Kyrgios wrote on Twitter late on Monday evening in response to news of player complaints about conditions in quarantine.

Kyrgios has become a strong critic of Djokovic during the pandemic and in June described him as ‘boneheaded’ after the Serbian tested positive for Covid-19 following his self-organised ‘Adria Tour’ tournament.

By contrast, the Australian has repeatedly boycotted the professional tennis circuit during the pandemic – staying in Australia and refusing to compete over the past 11 months.

Despite copping backlash from fellow players, Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley has defended Djokovic, claiming his list of requests were ‘suggestions’ rather than ‘demands’. 

The world No. 1 wrote to Mr Tiley asking for fitness and training materials to be put in all rooms, better food, and for the 14-day quarantine period to be reduced.

Djokovic also asked for as many players as possible to be placed in private houses with a tennis court to train on.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews bluntly shot down the suggestions on Monday, simply saying: ‘the answer is no’.

Mr Tiley told The Today Show on Tuesday that he spoke to about 500 players last night.

‘In the case of Novak, he wrote a note, these weren’t demands, they were suggestions, but he is understanding what two weeks of lockdown means,’ he said.

‘I think the reports we’re seeing and things we are seeing doesn’t represent the entire playing group. For the most part, they have been really good.’

The TA boss also defended players who have complained about the quality of food in hotel quarantine.     

‘These are high performing athletes and it is hard to keep a high performing athlete in a room,’ Mr Tiley said.

Meanwhile, infectious disease experts have warned that 1200 players and support staff who have arrived in Melbourne could be carrying the virus while it incubates. 

University of South Australia biostatistics and epidemiology Professor Adrian Esterman told The Age he expects more players to test positive over the coming days.

‘Sometimes if you’ve just been infected the viral load isn’t big enough yet to be picked up by a PCR test immediately,’ Professor Esterman said.

‘With such high rates of infections in several of the countries that these players and officials are coming from, I wouldn’t at all be surprised if we found some more positive cases in the coming days. In fact, I think it’s probably very likely.’
