ATP/WTA Tour - The Other Players

Why doesn't he just pay a doctor off to say he's been given it?

Good idea provided he was able to find one who was willing to do this.  It wouldn't surprise me though if he'd had the jab but just wants to make a fuss because I doubt he wants to miss the chance of winning his 21st Slam particularly as time is not on his side.

I wouldn't have thought any bona fide reputable doctor would accept payment for a vaccination which he hadn't given. 
It would be very wrong for Djokovic to ask a doctor to do that.
I agree with Aileen, anyway, that Djokovic has probably had the vaccination and that he's, as always, just trying to attract attention to himself.

He is just being his usual selfish self. He seems to think he is a law unto himself he should remember that many people have died from this virus. Unfortunately, many people in poorer countries would be very grateful to have this vaccine.

Remember he played in a tournament earlier in the year which he had organized and some of the other players did catch the virus I think he is being very selfish its time he thought of others and not just his selfish self.

And then wonders why he doesn't get the love and respect from people that he thinks he deserves!  As for the vaccine, I think the fact that he's refusing to divulge his vaccination status speaks for itself really, only he doesn't want to be seen as backing down by admitting that he's had it.

Good for them, although I think Peng was a bit unwise in doing what she did in the first place knowing how closely everything is monitored in China, including social media.

I know, and the beat Serbia in the semis despite Djoko's efforts!  So it'll be Germany or the RTF who are their opponents.

The Russian Tennis Federation won the Davis Cup for the third time thanks to Medvedev and Rublev.  The doubles rubber was deemed irrelevant.

But the ITF begs to differ by saying that it "We don't want to punish a billion people, so we will continue to run our junior events in the country and our senior events that are there for the time being."

Seems fair enough to me because why should innocent tennis fans have to suffer as a result of the rather unwise actions of Peng Shuai?

Novak is on the list to play at the AO.  It isn't clear whether or not he's had the vaccination.

Nadal has tested positive for covid despite being fully vaccinated.

"I am experiencing some unpleasant moments but I hope that I will improve little by little. I am now confined at home and have informed those people who have been in contact with me of the result,"

Unfortunately it could put his appearance at the AO in doubt,

Belinda Bencic too has covid despite being fully vaccinated.

In a Twitter post, Switzerland's Bencic said: "Unfortunately and even though I am fully vaccinated, I recently tested positive for COVID-19.

"I am currently isolating and taking all precautionary [measures] to get through this as best as possible as I am experiencing quite severe symptoms (fever, aches, chills)."


As both were playing recently in Abu Dhabi I really hope Andy hasn't been affected.
