There are 72 tennis players under a strict quarantine after five people tested positive for coronavirus who were on charter flights transporting tennis players, coaches, officials, and media from Doha, Qatar to Melbourne, Australia. Those that must quarantine for 14 days in hotel rooms in Melbourne include eight-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic and four-time title-winner Bernard Tomic, who is on lockdown with his girlfriend. His betrothed is OnlyFans star Vanessa Sierra, and she was not impressed by the conditions of quarantine. After complaining about the COVID-19 lockdown, she received hundreds of death threats.
Australia’s 7NEWS Melbourne posted a video of Vanessa in hotel lockdown, where she complained about the food and joked about having to wash her own hair.
“This is the worst part of quarantine,” Sierra said. “I don’t wash my own hair. I’ve never washed my own hair. It’s just not something that I do. I normally have hairdressers that do it twice a week for me.”
Djokovic reportedly also found the accommodations disappointing, and allegedly made six demands, including shorter isolation periods, better food, and players transferred to “private houses with tennis courts.”

Sierra said she received death threats because of the news segment that went viral. She encouraged people to watch her YouTube video to get the full context of the news clip.
“I’m getting so many DEATH threats over my hair joke and 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 – simply did a daily vlog as I always do about my life and circumstances,” Sierra wrote on an Instagram Story. “I even said that I don’t mind the food situation in quarantine. Didn’t realize how many idiots are in this world, but thank you to all my amazing supporters who still have my back through this.”
Vanessa, who was a reality TV star on Love Island, also lashed out at 7NEWS.
“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 I unapologetically will. Have a cry,” Sierra wrote on Instagram.
Australian professional tennis player Nick Kyrgios called out Sierra and Djokovic.
“Djokovic is a tool,” Kyrgios, ranked 47th in the world, wrote on Twitter. “I don’t mind Bernie but his Mrs obviously has no perspective, ridiculous scenes.”
Sierra thanked her fans for their support.
“Thank you to all of you who have had my back through this absolute sh*t show today,” the OnlyFans star said. “Never thought I’d wake up to 500 death threats and hate after poking fun at myself about my hair.
It’s easy to take something out of context when you take 2 sentences out of a 10 minute vlog, and throw it in a negative news story on mainstream media amidst tennis player complaints about their mandatory quarantine.”
Tomic and Sierra have been getting quite close during the quarantine, and he said, “My girlfriend’s coaching me actually.”
“She’s just helping me with a few things,” the tennis pro said of his girlfriend/coach. “We’ve managed to win eight matches. Quite good, it’s a new tactic for 2021.”
Earlier this month, Vanessa shared a YouTube video titled: “This is how much I make on OnlyFans.” Sierra didn’t reveal the exact amount of money she gets paid on OnlyFans, but said, “Let’s just say, Bernard could be a stay-at-home-dad if he wanted.”
