Australia Destroys Its Tennis Reputation
The petty little children running the Australian government have degraded the status of the Australian Open and also the validity of the Grand Slam by denying the reigning champion the right to defend the title for not being vaccinated.
If I were a tennis player I would just write the Australian Open off the places I would compete as the rules of the nazi Covid dictatorship, not the best players, determine outcomes. Sports have become politics, and I have lost all interest in them.
Rafael Nadal also showed poor form by voicing his relief that he wouldn’t have to face the champion in a match. Much easier to win if Novak Djokovic isn’t permitted to play.
