Djokovic back out of Australia. Pending an appeal.  What a mess.

I heard somebody say that, going forward, he should be referred to as "Novax."

In revoking the visa a second time, the government should have cited the inaccurate statements on his visa application, rather than "health and good order grounds." Djokovic claims his staff made the mistake, but that doesn't matter in most countries—the applicant is responsible for the accuracy of the information submitted regardless of who prepared it. (Similar to how courts won't tolerate an attorney saying his secretary messed something up). Saying "you lied on your application" (which, by all accounts, he did) is more powerful than amorphous "health and good order grounds."

Yes. He is at much less risk of spreading covid in early 2022 after just having had it, than someone who had the vaccine in early 2021. I assume most of the players have had a booster but it’s not an entry requirement. Being caught out and about in Belgrade after being diagnosed with Covid is also a bad look although probably not relevant to this decision. I believe they have banned him for three years which would be a killer for him. He has won the tournament 9 times. It is his baby like the French open is for Nadal. Of course if he had just gotten vaccinated he would be fine.

Two American ladies in the semis but Pegula fell short just like her Bills. No men made it that far of course. Maybe Nadal will get #21 to break the tie?

Pleasantly surprised this morning when I woke up and turned on the tennis and the 5th set was just starting.  Quite a surprise to me as the match started at about 3:30 am our time.  What a final set it was and congratulations to Nadal.  Who would have thunk he would be the first to 21 majors.  Not Djokovic for sure.  Wonder if the dude will get vaccinated?  Probably not.  Will have to catch a replay of the entire match when I have a spare 6 hours.

especially when they're burying an old immigrant who lived for 70+ years on the dole.

Geez Rafa. You could have defaulted during the match and let the American go through.
