    For all his talent because of his behaviour over the years he won't be regarded in the years to come in the same way as Federer or Nadal who are gents. He tried his luck and probably thought if he got there they would change their minds for the good of the tournament to have the best player in the world there. He thought wrong.

    Fair Dinkum.......



    'Fair dinkum' was used by the colliers of the UK's East Midlands from the 1880s and by Australians from a few years later. In the late 19th century, in addition to the numerous criminals who were transported, many mineworkers migrated from England to Australia, taking their working language with them.

    Is that actually what’s happened? Not sure Australia can cancel his vaccine exemption. I got the impression it was his visa that had been cancelled, due to filling the wrong form in! I think they’re planning to appeal.

    Must admit was surprised he was given exempt status as Aussies are normally stickler for the rules.

    Not really. They've been letting the rich and famous come and go internationally throughout this pandemic, whilst locals could not cross state lines, and at times, not go 5-10 Kms from home.

    If you want to split hairs it’s his visa that’s been cancelled because his exemption wasn’t up to muster

    wasn't intending to split hairs. just wasn't sure if he'd been denied entry because he hasn't got a valid medical exception, or if the exemption was fine but they'd got him on a technicality on the type of visa

    Unless the rules are to be tampered with, with a little piece of sandpaper. :D

    I think Vaccine "passports" or whatever else they are called seem to be largely pointless and doing next to nothing to stop the spread of this Virus.

    However I know Djokovic has been a Anti Vax moron long before Covid so I also I have next to no sympathy for him and his attempt to circumnavigate the rules.

    I remember his arrogance in June 2020 when he arranged his own tournament with a lack of precautionary protocols while the pro tour was shutdown. A number of players and coaches caught COVID and it was eventually cancelled.

    that will definitely not have been forgotten by many in the tennis world. he doesn't seem to be getting too much support, outside Serbia

    Katie Hopkins was famously ejected from Australia after breaking quarantine rules (flashing at a hotel worker iirc) while booked to appear on a reality TV show there.

    Further evidence that the man is a complete moron.

    I think Coivd vaccine passes are largely useless but that doesn't detract from how stupid and entitled he is trying to get around it with a medical exemption.

    To be fair, I think that story was concocted to explain how he suddenly went from a decent player to an absolute monster who could last 5 sets without breaking sweat. Give people a story and they'll stop looking for the real cause (i.e. EPO).

    Similar to how the Rock posts about how he eats 15 chickens or whatever a day to maintain his muscle...
