First his mother was ranting about the Australian authorities "torturing" Djokovic, then his father was calling his deportation an "assassination attempt", and claiming that the decision against him was racially motivated because they are Serbs. His parents both sound bonkers, and I'd say that the nut doesn't fall far from the tree.

The Australian Open officials made it clear from the start that all players need to be vaccinated, regardless of the their nationality, religion or genetic background - wild claims about bigotry from the Djokovic camp notwithstanding. In fact, they are also requiring all spectators be vaccinated - no doubt, they don't want the tourney to be a super-spreader event..

Djokovic, whether due to political passions or misguided medical views, wants to be an anti-vax warrior and say that no one can make him get the vaccine. Fine, then he doesn't play in tournaments requiring it for entry. It should be very simple.

Novak travelled to Melbourne after he was given permission by the Victorian government to enter the country. My understanding is that he satisfied the entry requirement since he was allowed a medical exemption since he had recently had Covid.

"super spreader" for what, the sniffles? tennis players are the most fit althletes on the planet. novak is probably more healthy than every single soul on the planet except for a few. Covidians just have to keep pushing this thing and its sad.

The alleged hotel conditions (that I read about) to which Djokovic was subjected sound horrific.

The UK has come up with a system where an athlete will quarantine for 10 days upon arrival, but can be released early with a negative Covid test.

Have you seen the proof of his torture and the assassination attempt? If so, please share it. Why do you think the Australians hate Serbs?

Maybe English is your second language, but spectators must be vaccinated also, and even if athletes generally have a milder course, it wouldn't make sense to say that all the Australian people need to be vaccinated, but we give the athletes a pass.

With over 5 million dead worldwide, why do you need to invent a conspiracy as the explanation for why the scientific, medical and public health community urge vaccination?

Can you elaborate? My comment referred to the alleged hotel conditions reported by some media.

What is for me to elaborate on? You responded to my post complaining about the wild and preposterous allegations from the Djokovic camp by bolstering them. So I said show me the proof that they are correct, and asked you to rationalize one of them.

All you have to do is Google it. The alleged hotel conditions where Djokovic was held were reported by various media outlets. Not sure who the sources of information were or how correct they were.
