"Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with. I am hoping things will ease with time so we can all resume lives the way they were,"


no, you completely ignored the 'new reality' and what we have learned in the past several months and tried to 'resume lives the way they were' by holding a tournament the same way you would have last year and if the virus didn't exist, you dumbass antivaxxer

As I said yesterday in another thread, I wouldn't mind him getting suspended from the spot for unnecessarily endangering other players and the public and conduct detrimental to tennis.

The other players involved should also be banned for endangering the public, but not as long as Djoke is.

We were playing a few nights ago and the people one court over asked if we wanted to do doubles, everybody sucked so it was cool. They were laughing at the idea of Novak Djokovic getting COVID-19 which I thought was in somewhat poor taste but I can't say it isn't a touch of karma. Hopefully he is fine and blah blah blah, still a selfish dumbass though.

Somebody somewhere has already made a gif of COVID-19 shooting out of his nipples when he does that moobie push nonsense.

On a purely selfish level, I'm really annoyed at Djokovic for this because even though I'm not a fan of his per se (I never disliked him but there's always been others on tour I preferred watching or listen to speak), I do really like his line of Lacoste tennis polos and have several in my closet I've bought over the years.

So now a measurable portion of my summer casual wear consists of a known anti-vaxxer's signed line of apparel. God damn it.

/and those things are expensive too

I know he organized the event, but your CSB of playing tennis with strangers while you call him a selfish dumbass?  hmm.

When it is taken into account that quarantine was never an option for either of us I felt that the risk of contracting COVID-19 through tennis was negligible, that it was somewhat low on the likelihood of how I'd get sick. Having to brutally endure what in no way is uninformed judgment has given me great reason for pause and further reassessment of my conduct.

So you haven't been quarantining and you played tennis with strangers and then back to your original point about Djokivic being a selfish dumbass for not quarantining and playing tennis with strangers and "somewhat low on the likelihood of how I'd get sick"

Yes, sounds like someone playing tennis was a selfish dumbass.  Quit digging.

Tennis is non-contact, but there is a lot of touching of the balls. And then they play the match.

Tennis should be fine.  The problem is when you have an idiot anti-vaxxer who heads the player's council ignoring all science and safety information.

I'm sure Djokovic will throw a pity party for himself and whine more about how he's not loved by the fans.

I cant speak for Woody's other activities, but the odds of being infected playing tennis outdoors is basically infinitesimal.

I recently bought a pair of tennis shorts from Lacoste.  I saw the Djokovic stuff, and it was pretty cool, but there's no way I'm wearing the clothes of an antivaxxer.

You don't understand, he can't quarantine. If he was to work, then he has no choice but to play tennis. Quarantine is all or nothing! Have to go to work? Start touching people, licking doorknobs, stop covering your mouth when you sneeze, stop washing your hands.

He had no choice. He even said so.

he and everyone else on his reckless and unnecessary exhibition wankfest need to be banned for the rest of the year - if there's even a rest of the year anymore. completely farking arrogant and irresponsible assholes, the lot of them. I suppose there's no chance of finding out how many fans in attendance have it.

his cult followers are still claiming fans of other players just want to trash him and it's a coincidence everyone in tennis who's positive was on his tour. they could have been infected elsewhere, you know! (where have I heard that kind of deflection/rationale before...)

there are several players on that tour whose balls I'd like to touch, though their participation has somewhat diminished their attractiveness.

It was an oversight on my part not to have potentially losing a deep and meaningful friendship with a Michigan fan due to their immature pettiness on my risk assessment form, being one of outstanding character I accept that the fault is to be laid at my feet and not those of my secretary.

Yeah, well, maybe you will get it as well. Talk about super karma. Laughing at a sick guy and calling it karma while you do the same exact thing and get it too.

That's what happens when you make purchasing decisions based on celebs and/or the sports ballers.

Could say almost the same about some Farkers.

Match? It was a whole farking tournament with absolutely no social distancing. They were hugging each other, partying and had a basketball game the night before it began. Completely asinine. Oh, and Joco is an antivaxxer too, so fark him. Hope his kid is OK though.

The Tennis Channel showed the whole farking tournament. And that's a damn shame because up to that point, I enjoyed watching the reruns of classic matches on the Tennis Channel during the pandemic. But showing the Adria tournament knowing that there were no masks & no social distancing is pretty much aiding & abetting any and all consequences.
