The guy’s won it nine times. It was gutsy (to go) in a way.‘I’ve got to hand it to him. I’ve got seven majors, he’s got 20, the reason he’s got a lot more than me is because he’s willing to go risk that, to go down there.

He’s not wrong there BoycottAustralianOpen BoycottAusOpen boycottAustralia John Johnny JOHN JOHN “ YOU CAN NOT BE SERIOUS?!” What’s he gonna do? Smash something against the floor as usual? Never liked these two and now even less What else would u expect of them. They were nvr known 2b the most gracious hosts anyways. But inviting, accepting,letting in & then no.Not acceptable. Its a new low.Does this have any parallels- John not getting the membership due was not so bad as he eventually did.

'Entitled brat has wrong opinion on entitled brat'... hold the front pages. More news as we get it. 'You can't be serious' In 1967, Muhammad Ali refused to go to the Vietnam war and was convicted of draft dodging and stripped of his World titles. Ali was vilified by the authorities and the media. But eventually they changed their minds about Ali and began to view him as a hero. Learn from history.

I'll serve your ass like John McEnroe, if your girl steps up I'm smacking the ho. No body gives a fck what McEnroe thinks about it

Djokovic Arrives in Dubai After Deportation From AustraliaIt isn't clear where the top men's tennis player plans to travel to next, with the Dubai Duty Free tournament weeks away Do you know ....my world just wouldn't have been the same ....if you hadn't tweeted

Shame n McEnroe It turns out Novak Djokovic is found guilty for getting the medical exemption from Australia, guilty for wanting a freedom of choice, guilty for being the best of all times, guilty for chasing after the 21st GS, guilty for being an easy target for the politicians, and finally 1/ Where was he went it counted? Typical PR stunt. Not buying any shit anyone tries selling now that Novak is back in Serbia. Why did he not encourage players to BoycottAustralianOpen ?

Australian laws none of angry Mac's business. No John, your bullsh!t. Djokovic is entitled to his beliefs, as McEnroe says, and Australia is entitled to keep him out of their country. DJOKOVIC HERO OF WORLD FREEDOM! 🙌🙌🙌 On yesterday’s broadcast he didn’t even know the facts of the case. Zero preparation.

Freedom of personal rights, now have to be fought for, not accessed in a democratic way ...... It is beyond SAD that Novak will not be in the AO. Whoever wins it, will not be the outright true Winner because they have not had to play the World Number One, Novak Djokovic ......

What next for Djokovic?Novak Djokovic has been deported from Australia following the row over a vaccine exemption. What happens next for the Serb? Whether rightly or wrong the main thing is the Australian open will be worse for not having its defending champion there defending his title Retirement. Bye. Now Djokovic has been sent packing now Boris Johnson also needs to be sent packing from Downing street.

Thank you! At LONG last ...... Somebody, being the one and only John McEnroe, from the Tennis World, has actually stood up and supported Novak Djokovic. I agree with every word of his statement. Democracy, is NOT democracy anymore. Democracy, has been weakened down to a very watery form. WADR, John McEnroe HAS NO SAY ABOUT Australia COVID19 PROTOCOLS FOR VISITORS TO THEIR COUNTRY ESPECIALLY DURING A DEADLY pandemic ‼️ & NEITHER DOES Djokovic ‼️ GetVaccinated WearAMask AND STFU ‼️ AustralianOpen Australia 🙏🏽❤️ JohnMcEnroe 👇🏽

Good grief. There’s a old saying here in Australia that I’m finding quite apt, 'suffer in your jocks', or as I say sufferinyourDjoks There are far more pressing issues here and all over the world than some bloke who's grossly rich and entitled because he can hit a ball better than others I will enjoy watching the tennis players that are vaxed and can't do a match, being out of breath. What will be the ratio? 4 out of 100,who will have to leave the matchBiontech is the pilar of health Industry.There are no football players having heart attacks on the field.
