You can't spell Djokovic without covid. The silly sausage needs to get the vaccine. Tell the truth?
Novak Djokovic saga in Australia not good for anyone – Andy MurrayOther players have been having their say on the cancellation of Djokovic’s visa. helen211_cute It is a prime example of freedom of choice GOOD! Serves him fuking right.Despite him being tennis World No.1 I’ve never ever liked him.There’s a fine line between confidence & arrogance & he crosses that by miles. He’s never ever humble,so expectant,thinks he’s cut above rest incl. law,thinks rules don’t apply to him.👋
Vaccination? Go and get VACCINATED or else NO more tournaments. He'll declare that the Grand Slam was a fake and that he really 'WON'. A long flight home one assumes Not the AO Any thing he likes, he’s a multi millionaire, don’t feel pity. Obscurity Boring
Novak Djokovic’s controversial beliefs and why he is opposed to the vaccineWhy is Novak Djokovic opposed to vaccine? Does anyone care. He put people at risk after testing positive and lied about it. That's his character, and that's what matters. Mene interesuje kako igra tenis i volim da uživam u tome. Šta me briga kakva su njegova uverenja o bilo čemu osim o tenisu? Ja imam svoja uverenja i svoje stavove kad je moj privatni život u pitanju. Zar je na ljude rođene u vekovnim demokratijama tako lako izvršiti uticaj? Because having beliefs not conducing to anti-Covid vaccination is abnormal and requires punishment and appropriate corrections. But the truth is that the only thing making vaccination obviously and morally indispensable are government edicts, not science based bindings.
Go throw more unvaccinated parties in his own country or expose more kids to a deadly virus 🤷🏽♂️ Next it’s go home and face the trouble he’s in there for breaking isolation rules. It’s really a ridiculous thing of Australian government! it’s Australian authorities granted Novak a visa on medical exemption in the first place
Who cares what happens to NovakDjokovic! As they say in the army, he has been RTM - Returned to Mama! Will not miss this arrogant, belligerent, spoiled, lying AntiVaxxer. Kudos to Australia government for protecting its citizens and walking tall. COVID19 pandemic is serious. A lot of bloody complaining probably
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. What next for Novak? A job working for the tory party because they love and support those who do not follow the covid rules
At this point, who cares.
Raducanu & Murray lead British interestEmma Raducanu and Andy Murray lead the British interest before the start of an Australian Open still clouded by the Novak Djokovic controversy. So BBC CNN and others use these accusatory language like '..they do what they want' as to create the perception that they did something wrong to swing public opinion against them and take them down, like you did with Trump Novak and now your UK PM that did your dirty work so far. Forget tennis, his involvement here is a far more important news item. Why is the media not talking about this story?
Play with himself.. 🤷♀️
Novak Djokovic: Court to decide player's Australian Open fateJudges will hear the player's appeal against his visa being revoked on grounds of public interest. Is he still willing to stay there and play 🤔🤔 Enough There's people all round the world who couldn't even attend family funerals and he's expecting the rules to change so he can play tennis. His arrogance is stomach churning.
Tennis No player has won more Australian Open men's titles than Novak Djokovic, who lifted the trophy for a ninth time in 2021 Novak Djokovic has never hidden how much he craves ending his career with the most Grand Slam men's titles of all time. But he has been denied the chance to win a record 21st major at next week's Australian Open after his visa was revoked by the country's government. The row stopped the 34-year-old Serb having a shot at making more tennis history - but also raises further questions for Djokovic, plus other players who are reluctant to be vaccinated against Covid-19, for the season ahead. Will other countries stop Djokovic entering if he is not vaccinated? Could it prevent him playing in the other Grand Slam tournaments? For how long? And what does it mean for the nine-time Australian Open champion's future? Australian Open day one preview: Norrie begins British bid Will Djokovic be stopped playing anywhere else? After losing his bid to have his visa cancellation overturned, Djokovic will be denied the opportunity in Australia to become the man with the most Grand Slam titles. Level with Switzerland's Roger Federer and Spain's Rafael Nadal on 20, the world number one was aiming to move clear of his long-time rivals for the first time by winning his 10th title at Melbourne Park, although it seems extremely unlikely Djokovic will not play another Grand Slam. Nadal, 35, could move ahead by winning for the first time since his only triumph there in 2009, while 40-year-old Federer is missing with a long-term knee injury. The issue with Djokovic's entry into Australia also raises questions about whether he will face difficulty entering other countries. But, as Nadal pointed out, Djokovic would face no such problems if he decided to get the vaccination. Some governments have made vaccinations mandatory for foreign visitors, with others allowing unvaccinated travellers if they provide negative tests and spend time in isolation on arrival. Generally throughout his career, Djokovic has taken a few weeks off after the Australian Open before returning for the ATP Masters tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami in March. Non-US citizens must be fully vaccinated to travel to the United States, according to the US Department of State. "Foreign national air travellers to the United States will be required to be fully vaccinated and to provide proof of vaccination status prior to boarding an airplane to fly to the United States, with only limited exceptions," it states. Limited exceptions include people with "documented medical contraindications to receiving a Covid-19 vaccine" and those whose entry would be in the national interest. After Miami, the season moves into the European clay-court swing. The first key tournament is in Monte Carlo, where Djokovic resumed his 2021 season after winning the Australian Open two months earlier. Current rules state unvaccinated people can enter the principality if they have proof of a positive PCR test more than 11 days ago and in the past six months, but must otherwise complete a quarantine period that can be cut short by tests. After Monte Carlo, there are two more Masters events in Rome and Madrid before the European clay-court season culminates with the French Open in Paris at the end of May. Unvaccinated travellers can enter Spain, France and Italy in various circumstances, enabled by PCR and antigen tests while, potentially, having to complete quarantine periods. French president Emmanuel Macron recently said he wanted to make life difficult for unvaccinated people in the country, While that comment related to rules in French daily life rather than travel restrictions, it was perhaps an insight into what Djokovic might face before the second Grand Slam of the 2022 season. However, French sports minister Roxana Maracineanu recently said
