Djokovic Unlikely To Defend Australian Open Title Over Jab Mandate

Novak Djokovic’s father has said that it is unlikely his son will defend his title at The Australian Open in January. Unvaccinated players have been banned from competing in the first grand slam of the year. Djokovic has declined to reveal his status.

Srdjan Djokovic told Serb TV:

“Under these blackmails and conditions, he probably won’t play. I wouldn’t do that. And he’s my son, so you decide for yourself. As far as vaccines and non-vaccines are concerned, it is the personal right of each of us whether we will be vaccinated or not.

No-one has the right to enter into our intimacy.”

According to BBC Sport:

World number one Djokovic has won the Australian Open a record nine times and is level on 20 Grand Slam wins with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Spaniard Nadal says he plans to play at the tournament, which runs from 17-30 January in Melbourne, but Federer will miss the event as he recovers from knee surgery.

Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley has said that 85% of professional players are vaccinated and he expects that figure to be “between 90-95%” by the time of the event at which fans and staff will also be banned if unvaccinated.

Yet another sporting event forever carrying an asterisk in the record books, following political intervention.


Hey Mark, We all like evidence to prove what we are saying. It sounds like you have stumbled across some massive news and have the evidence to back it up….”All top flight sports men (no women?) are using dope” What are you going to do with this evidence? Its going to blow the whole sports world apart. Wow this is big.

Good for him.


Hes taken steroids his entire career


please tell ?, nadal and the fed maybe, never heard anything about your man being juiced.


Look up his famous slump in performance and his defending of others who have been caught. Sad to say but all top flight sports men are juiced – even low level football league players. I know a few – its just standard.


do you think fatima whitbread was on the roids


you are talking Shit Mark ! If there is evidence to show then show it instead of being viceral.This man is known for being a fitness and health fanatic and has changed his diet many times. I am not a fan and do not even care but you are spreading Bullshit and that is unacceptable.

You want evidence – you are on the wrong site mate – this is Richie Allan – all speculation all the time.


fuck off ya shill, new balls please.


Yeah but sorry to break it to you – all top flight sports men use dope. All of them and you are delightfully niaive if you think otherwise. Never lose that chidish wonder mate – its quite charming.


you on the gear mate ?


The difference is that the ‘dope’ used by top sportsmen (and women) has been around for half a century so they have a pretty good handle on what the side effects are. The ‘vaccines’ are new emergency use material. Seems to me like Djokovic has made a sensible choice to avoid the ‘dope’ about which there are no long term studies.


respect to novak.


Absolutely, good for him.


heard andy murray saying he has known novak since he was about 11 years old, said he and his family are decent people, for anyone who dislikes andy murray, do you know andy is from dunblane and was in that school that day, that is why i would never have a go at the boy, people should remember that.


My goodness I didn’t know that. What a horrible experience for him to live with.


have never heard him speak about it, he would have known some of the kids, the darkest day in our history.
