By that "logic", wearing your seat belt or locking your door or taking any precaution is 'living in fear'. Which, of course, it's not - that's just your nonsensical spin.

And Nadal was Defending Champion at 2020 US Open and Did Not Play, and he also Did Not Play 2021 US Open.

But the winners of that 2009 Wimbledon (Federer) and 2014, 2020, 2021 US Opens were still legit winners.

And Nadal actually deserved to be at those events (but was injured, or skipped 2021 US Open for covid safety reasons) while Djokovic doesn't even deserve to be in Australia, and will also not be welcome at 2022 Roland Garros-

There is a huge difference between choosing not to play and being told you cannot play. There will NOT be a legit male winner this year since Djokovic was not allowed to be in the tournament.

No, locking your door is not likely to cause you to prematurely have a stroke or heart attack like getting the "vaccine" is.

If this was just a fringe theory and Djokovic was an adherent of a strange cult, then maybe, but there is tons of evidence out there that these "vaccines" are harmful especially to younger men.

So the shot does not prevent you from getting COVID, it doesn't prevent you from spreading COVID, and it is the most harmful "vaccine" ever created, yet governments all around the world are desperate for everyone to get it. Suspicious yet?

Can you legally prove it? I don't think so.

Will the winners during covid years (2020, 2021 and 2022) have an asterisk next to their names? I don't think so.

Its not that Djokovic wasn't allowed to enter the tournament, its that Djokovic wasn't allowed to stay in the country.
Think about that, he's so unworthy of winning the AO, that he wasn't even allowed to stay in the country of Australia.

Whereas Nadal is considered extremely unlucky to have missed 8 slams, and was very worthy of winning some of those.
Djokovic is simply not worthy, because it makes no sense for him to be the only unvaccinated player in the AO, when so many players only got the vaccine so they could play the AO.

And as disappointing as it is for Djokovic's fan base, they'll never be able to prove that Djokovic would have won the 2022 AO or 2022 French Open etc., and I can't imagine Wimbledon welcoming him back either....

The reason why Australia allowed Djokovic in last year, is because the vaccine hadn't become a factor yet, so nobody was expected to be vaccinated.
Whereas now 92.6% of Australians (over age 16) are double-vaccinated, so there is no excuse for a tennis player to be unvaccinated, because the rules are for everybody involved.
All the spectators are vaccinated and therefore all the players are too.
And Djokovic chose not to be in the tournament when he refused to make the sacrifice that nearly all other players made.

The title of this thread should be "The Djokovic thread." Seriously guys, there's more to discuss around tennis other than that doofus, Djokovic.

This has nothing to do with Covid. Have you not seen the way he acts on the court??

The sports media and others will be questioning this for years to come. Just watch..

I think it's very possible Novak will fake vaccination in order to play in future tournaments that require it. I strongly suspect he is lying about testing positive for covid in December.

Looking forward to watching Tsitsipas, Alcaraz, Berrettini, Schwartzman, Sakkari, and Sabalenka!
