    COVID-19 and Tennis

    I've read somewhere that his rule breaking (on the form, or the lack of vaccination upon entry) wasn't part of the ministers decision, not because it was to be ignored, but from a legal standpoint it would be very shaky to use that argument, given that ultimately he was allowed to enter...

    /off-topic rant not related to tennis Social media has put society on a complete 180° path to the ideals that were promised by it. Instead of it becoming a tool to learn and form opinions by hearing from a diverse range of views, its mostly used as an echo chamber to reinforce our limited...

    Exactly, the damage is done. But he'll always have his supporters regardless of what he does, seems to be a common thing in this modern world (or am I just getting older and crankier?)

    How do you silence Djokovic's family? ask them about vaccination. There is another out for NoVax - to lay the blame squarely upon Tennis Australia and have their CEO fall upon his sword. He can say he was misled into believing he could play with the exemption they granted him. But he can't use...

    NOW he'll be concerned about COVID.

    Probably the same reason he *had* to play the AO - the crowds stroke his ego, slim chance of that on a private jet.

    The judgement was pretty much on the basis of "Was the Ministers decision lawful". And given the immigration act gives the minister discretion - it was always going to be hard to prove it was unlawful. All three judges unanimously agreed it was completely lawful independent of how good/bad a...

    For someone whos essentially broken their own laws, doesn't reside there and has scant regard for their own welfare, their mightily proud of him, hope they understand the concept of "projection"

    This. TA seemed to believe they were somehow above Australian laws. They had no authority to hand out exemptions, they had no authority to issue Visas and they had no authority to determine who could enter the country to play in their tournament. All facts that they seem to have conveniently...

    Minister Hawke did address these and basically didn't bother to test them citing the public threat as the primary cause. Given the way his supporters reacted to him at the detention hotel, they're not helping his cause. Further, this will be hard for NoVax to content, his real challenge is that...

    I'm not a tennis fan at all, and I visited the AO website for the first time ever the other day, and was shocked they publish each planners "winnings", showing NoVax having won over $145m! You'd think, in this current climate when people are struggling, putting this figure up is a little...
