I thought I hated the Djoker the most, until I watched Medvedev tonight. Praying for him to enjoy some gastro on Saturday night. #Nadal21

I want Nadal to win too but this uncouth booing when a player double faults is disgusting .. AO want do anything as they like the bums on seats this year and encouraged the special K’s
If only it was like Wimbledon

Not a legal eagle, but I would expect not, unless there is evidence of Djokovic personally contributed to the alleged State-based/testing facility-based/public health authority-based fraud.
How could he not? It was (or was not) his swab - he must recall giving it - or not?
I cannot believe this all happened without his knowledge…dog ate homework (and did my swab and got into the computer)

As the media hots up with its nonsense about 'record breaking 21st grand slam title', let's spare a thought for -

Margaret Court, 24 grand slam titles
Serena Williams, 23 grand slam titles
Steffi Graf, 22 grand slam titles.

Apparently not everyone counts all of MC's titles because some of them come from that prehistoric time when there was a rigid distinction between professional and amateur sportspeople and the former were considered not quite nice.

Wasn't Steffi great. She is my favourite. I often wondered how Monica Seles might have fared had she not been attached by that idiot.

Whichever way the Australian Open men's final goes on Sunday night, Novak Djokovic is set to lose.

If Rafael Nadal wins he will go one ahead of Djokovic and Roger Federer with a 21st grand slam title, taking the lead in the men's all-time race.

But if Daniil Medvedev wins he will dethrone Djokovic as World No.1.



Edit: seems Djokovic could lose ranking on 21/2

He could quickly regain No 1 but more problematic to win a grand slam. And besides GO RAFA!
