Fresh update on "novak" discussed on Bloomberg Daybreak

"On Wall Street, time to get the Bloomberg sports update. Good morning, Scott Steinberg. Good morning, Nathan Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron judge both Holmes as the bombers finished off a sweep of the a's 5 three. The Yankees 25 and one when judge and Stanton Homer in the same game, including 9 and O this season. It was Aaron judge. You know, we know what's ahead of us. We know it's halfway through the year now. And still a long way to go, but, you know, everyone's important, you know, I just spent so many years, we look back and, you know, we're getting down to the inter September and it's like, we're fighting in claw and we're having game out, half a game up. And I think guys are starting to realize the importance of, hey, you know, even these, you know, if we won the series, but this third game, it means a lot down the road. The Yankees will play one game in the Houston tonight before heading to Cleveland for a weekend series, Luis severino will get the start. The mets, meanwhile, lost a pitcher's duel to the Astros tune up in yesterday Justin Verlander went 8 shutout innings allowing just two hits, and Taiwan walker matched him, going 7 and a third shutout innings allowing just before hits, Jason Castro's two run Homer off of drew Smith in the top of the 9th was the difference the mets are off tonight. They host the rangers tomorrow night. At Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic cruised in straight sets, three seed Casper rude was upset by Hugo umber and American John Isner defeated two time champion Andy Murray, the second round exit the earliest exit for Murray at the all England club. I'm Scott Edinburgh with Bloomberg sports. Nathan? All right, Scott, thank you 6 37 on Wall Street. Time now to take a look at stocks, some of the names moving in the pre market as we get ready for the final day of the first half, we are joined this morning by Bloomberg radio and TV markets correspondent creating Gupta got to think investors just want to close the books. I mean, you look at the terminal this morning, what's in the green? Only one stock Nathan, and it's interesting here, it's PepsiCo, PEP, your tickets, up only two tenths of 1%. So I wouldn't call it a massive move to the upside, but given the context that you are looking at where you do have futures down over 1% and you have some of these other stocks up down, well down, just period. I think that's pretty significant. I will say though, there are two stocks that are actually flat this morning and it's Kellogg and its Kroger. And if you actually look at the perhaps the thread between all three, it's that their food related company. So it kind of seems like the new defensive trade we talked a lot about this has been oil, but it's also been food companies, food packaging companies, fertilizer companies. So perhaps there is that thread, but also keep in mind Nathan, as you mentioned, people are closing their books. It's the last day of the quarter. It's the last day of the month as well. So there is going to be extremely low volume and there's going to be rebalancing flows and the bonus on top here. The cherry on top of a really not so great Sunday is that we are going into the July 4th weekend here in the states. So there isn't going to be a ton of conviction to hop into positions when you have those dynamics at play. Yeah, but you got to think with kind of loss this deep for the futures contracts creedy. There's more going on here than just repositioning into the third quarter, isn't there? There might be. And there is always the fundamental narrative. I always like to go with the fun flows first just to kind of explain it a little bit from that angle. But there is a narrative here that just how much room do we really have our very own Danny Berger pointed out that this is the worst start to the year going all the way back to 1962. And if you think and go back in 1962 for those of you who can. Yes, who were alive? I sadly was not. But if you go back in the history books and you look at it in 1962 with such a crucial year because let me nerd out for a second if I can. You basically have this massive run up in what was their version of these big tech stocks called the nifty 50 was a Xerox. It was IBM. It was Disney. These high flying stocks that were lifting the entire benchmark, and then it was followed by what they call an end called the Kennedy slide. So for 9 straight months, the market just collapsed. There was no real reason that even the head of the stock exchange said it's not a liquidity problem. It's not a plumbing problem. They're just kind of repricing from those monumental gains and the one pivot point was in October 1962, which if someone remembers from their history books was the Cuban missile crisis. So I wonder how much of this also has the backdrop of those kind of Cold War esque feelings. And I also wonder how much of the war in Ukraine is weighing on the story. Yeah, history being made in 2022. Thanks for this creedy good having you on with us Bloomberg radio and TV markets correspondent. Credi Gupta ahead of the market open. This final day of the first half S&P futures are down, 56 points or one and a half percent Dow futures down 374 NASDAQ futures lower by 210 points. That is a drop of

Why Mindy Kaling's South Asian Velma Won't Hit Home

"Mindy Kaling. The actress who won't tell us who the father of her baby is, but we all know it's a former costar. B. J. Novak, she has created a Scooby-Doo animated spin off velma for HBO Max and she's making velma a South Asian brown skin girl. And she doesn't give a shit. Who doesn't like the idea? She said, if a dog can solve crimes and thelma can be brown. Hopefully you'll notice my velma is South Asian, she said, and the people freak out, I just don't care. You know what make you freak out? Mindy, your purple gums. I don't like your purple gums. That make me a bad guy? Just being honest. Well, good. I'm glad you don't care because not many people are going to care for your show. Velma, which will be animated and for adults. HBO Max is going to expand their adult animated programming. Velma tells the origin story of velma dinkley. Not really a name for a South Asian, but whatever. Velma dinkley, the unsung and underappreciated brains of the Scooby-Doo mystery ink Yang. And after the animated show was announced, Twitter blew up with openly racist complaints about caving new project and some people pointed out how making velma into a studious Asian nerd also plays into stereotypes. Listen, this is the thing. I hate that it has to be a race thing. I really do. I just, I don't like them changing characters from what they are in the first place and have been for decades, to me it's very off putting. You can't make a new character. There's Popeye have to be Latino going down the road. What are we doing?

"Well, folks day three of Wimbledon is in the books. It is 1129 p.m., obviously because Wimbledon doesn't do night Sessions. We're back at tennis podcast towers London edition, myself, David law, Matt Roberts. We've just had Chinese food. Here we go. Oh yes, we have. Oh yes, we have. David has eaten half a bird. Yeah, very nice. It was too. We all opened our fortune cookies. Would everyone like to disclose their fortune, please? David? Hold on, I gotta turn it around all night. Pick a path with your heart. Love it. My mind was the greatest wisdom is kindness. Can't argue with any of it so far, Matt. Mine was a bit of an attack. It was when you're in a hole, stop digging. Did they know something that? Right then, now where I want to go from here, and I realize I haven't prepped either of you for this, is some sort of a tennis tennis projection of your fortune cookie. Whose fate today matches up to what was in your fortune cookie. Mine might be Alejandro de vidovich for keener. What happened to Alejandro davidovich for kina today Matt? That's amazing. That felt like it's pre planned, but it wasn't. Well, he found a strange way to lose, shall we say? He was, of course, in another 5th set tie break. This time against Yuri vessi, just a couple of days after his 5th set tiebreak victory over Hubert herk and he got a code violation during the 5th set tiebreak. So of course, another code violation would result in a point penalty. So he needed to stop digging at that point. He was in a hole. But he kept digging and he got himself another code violation. This time for ball abuse on match point when he was match point down. So you don't want to be doing that, do you? So he lost an epic 5 setter because he got a point penalty on match point. And from the scenes I saw he stayed on court, sat in his chair. For a very long after year, he had left the call. And he had a discussion in Spanish with umpire Carlos Ramos about why he was given a point penalty when his code violation was for something else, the second one. He didn't realize that you could keep racking up brand new. Brand new ones. Varieties of insert insert Andy Murray, nobody knows the fucking rules. Okay, David, who is your who's day? Does your fortune match? Well, let's just remind ourselves that mine. If this would all that's done as a disservice here, this feature that I did not plan remotely should have been an absolute car crash. But Matt's just done a really wonderful answer there. Well, I just haven't said both of us up for a fall, but but I feel like I might at least not humanly act myself. Off you go, David. Pick a path with your heart is mine. Now I don't know Tim van REIT over. I'm not sure anyone does. We started with the big, you know, the big global stories of the day. But the Dutchman who is now how old is he? He's 25 years of age and never. Would you mean how old is he now? Well, we've only known about him for three weeks. Exactly. Exactly. Never heard of him. I just kept thinking he's a 104 in the world and in his mid 20s he has picked the path with his heart and he has beaten radio palka today, winning two out of the three tie breaks that they played and he won in four sets and I think it's an excellent winner O'Reilly Parker's not that good on grass actually, which is kind of a kind of amusing given he's 7 foot tall and has that serve. But Tim van Wright over and keeps on doing this. He had that incredible result a few weeks ago and he won the tournament. Now he's backed it up. He's into the third round of Wimbledon. He's picked the right path, the path with his heart. He's on a 7 match winning streak. He told you told you he took time off after his title and saved himself a Wimbledon and it's working and he's a potential fourth round opponent for Novak Djokovic. And he's I've literally never known this man to lose. So. Same. In my mind, he is unbeatable. Is he got next? He has got Nicolas basile villain. Winnable. Yeah. And honestly, honestly, he might be, this is probably going to sound absolutely ridiculous. He might be the kind of toughest possible opponent for someone like Djokovic. It's just a totally unknown quantity. Who's coming into the net? On a win streak, cubed Djokovic winning 6 two 6 two 6 two. It's very interesting. Tim ren van right over and feels like my new beatriz had admire. Oh, sorry, Tim. I needed somebody to place just to buy me a bit of a bit of extra time to answer my own question. Since you've raised Djokovic, should we talk about Djokovic? Because it wasn't quite a 6 one 6 two 6 two, but it was a supreme performance from Djokovic. I mean, you tweeted David that the real Novak Djokovic has shown up now. You can forget how good he is sometimes, I think. And I think the same applies to Rafael Nadal and but less so with him simply because at least mentally and energy wise, he's always there. Okay, he was a bit scratchy the other day. But Djokovic two days ago, I thought was unwell. I mean, if somebody, you know, we've seen chichen bear a tiny pull out of this tournament with COVID. If somebody had told me after that match that Novak reach has got COVID, I don't believed it because he looked weary, he looked sluggish, he looked just really uncomfortable in a match against Quan soon Wu, who was excellent in that match that four sets, this was like a different human being. This was reminiscent of the match she won in 2018 on court number one against Karen hachen of. Similar kind of player to Kaka nakas bulldozer of a serve and a forehand and you're expecting them to take the fight to Djokovic. And they tried both of them tried and you could see the look in their faces when the ball was coming back faster at them than they'd hit it because his timing when he's in this form when he's in this mood is so on. He looks like he's got more time than the opponent every time he's just strokes the ball but the ball is pinging off the strings. And putting them on the back foot and I think that's something he has over everybody else in the world that that mode that he can employ and he can't just do it on a whim. It's not like he can always do that, but when he's in that form I mean he looks extraordinary as a tennis player and well that was favorite tennis really. Well, there was a wonderful line from kokina press after its very last. In this form, do you think Djokovic will go.

Sam, let's just recap this year, right? Novak Djokovic has 20 Grand Slam titles. He has the record for time spent as the number one player in the world. Now at 370 weeks and counting, he is just ridiculously talented he is remarkably decorated as a tennis player. And so the question for me, even beyond the bread and the health and COVID stuff, is why he has not been revered anywhere close to Federer and Nadal. Yeah, it's not like he's the only really talented athlete in the world who has a pretty unusual perspective or goes away from the mainstream on some of his views, right? I mean, he is certainly not alone in that regard. Tom Brady's pretty popular. But Djokovic has never been able to sort of get to that level of adoration that Federer and Nadal have had almost their entire careers. And I think in the beginning, part of it was that he was the disruptor, right? He was the guy who was coming in to sort of break up this Federer Nadal thing. And the various followings that Federer Nadal have are really strong and really well established. And so Djokovic was this kind of like new guy in town and I think, you know, in the beginning, there was a lot of like, okay, well, things are going pretty well with Federer at all. We like these guys. Who's this other guy? But then even as he became more successful, even as he began to beat these guys with some regularity, it still didn't change. And so I think a lot of people around Djokovic in my reporting, I got the sense that there is still this feeling that there's a little bit of an Eastern Bloc issue here, right? Tennis is a traditional sport. It's covered largely by a media that has its footprint in Western Europe, Australia and the United States. And the sort of coverage bends towards the players that fit that mold. And Federer, who's like, you know, out of a Swiss watch commercial from diapers. He fits that mold perfectly. And Nadal, you know, Spanish flair, creativity, personality, bandanna, biceps. Yes. All of it. He fits perfectly. And Djokovic doesn't, and Serbia doesn't. This is former Yugoslavia Djokovic was an outsider in a lot of ways. He describes himself as a child of war. When Djokovic was growing up as a 9, ten, 11, 12 year old, there were bombs dropping. There were wars being fought. The first bombing of its kind in NATO history. On March 24 1999, western nations carried out their threat against Serbia and began the biggest military conflict on Serbian soil since World War II. His 12th birthday party Pablo was at a tennis club in Belgrade and literally as his parents are leading the kids in singing happy birthday. Warplanes are flying overhead. They were in the midst of the NATO bombings that lasted for 78 nights. Yeah, the U.S. led NATO bombings incidentally. Exactly a 100%. At the time, NATO was trying to defeat slobodan milosevic and he was a dictator and there was all types of ethnic cleansing. I mean, this is real stuff. While I was in Belgrade, Pablo, I actually went to the apartment building where his grandfather had an apartment where Djokovic spent so many of those nights. And the super in that building agreed to open the bunker up for me. I had never been in a bunker like this before, but it was really remarkable, you know, you go down these stairs and he pulls up in this giant steel door and you go in and the smell is the thing that I'll remember most. It's just musty, your underground, it's very cramped, literally the residents of the building Pablo had set up a stationary bike and Jerry rigged this like rudimentary electrical setup where one person would peddle on the stationary bike and that would provide enough power to keep just a few lightbulbs lit. All the way through the night. It was really hard for me to imagine young children. Night after night, in a place like this. And you're a 12 year old and all you're trying to do is find a place to play tennis. He and his coach, during these bombings, every morning they would get up and they would go around Belgrade, looking for the sites that were the most damaged, the ones where there were craters in the ground from the night before, and they would try to play tennis near that damage because they figured what are the chances that NATO's gonna bomb the same area of the city two days in a row. Think about what that does to a kid, right? Think about what that does to the way that he sees the world around him, the way he sees the western world. And so I think that when Djokovic reached the levels that he wanted to reach in professional tennis, he brought two professional tennis and attitude and a perspective that was really different than what XS had seen before. And I think the bottom line is there was a lot of reticence to accept that. So this guy who comes from that place, how do you think that's affected the way Novak Djokovic portrays himself to the public? You know, Pablo, I think there is this push pull, right? Because he wants to be seen as this proud Serbian, this guy who has helped bring his country forward, that isn't the way that we remember the former Yugoslavia. So he wants to be that, but he also wants to fit in desperately. And when I think about that, I think back to early in his career, where, you know, he was known as like the Joker, the jester, right? This was a guy who was sort of known for being good at tennis, but also being really good at doing funny impressions of other players, right? I mean, you can imagine it. They're all over YouTube, right? He would go out on court and he would he was good at him. He was good at them. He would pretend to be to be Nadal and he would fidget and he touched his headband and he'd pick his wedgie before every point, just like Nadal does and he even put on like a tennis skirt and tried to portray Serena Williams at one point. And it was kind of like, okay, it was cool. It was like, all right, like you said, he was pretty good at it, but it also kind of smacked of, hey guys, look at this party trick that I can do, you know? Maybe you don't like where I'm from. Maybe I'm a little different, so let me just show you that I'm the funny man. And I think that that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Sure, he made some fans because of it, but I'll tell you this, Pablo and I know it's a little bit random. When I was in Belgrade, I met up with darko militant, right? Who was another Serbian athlete who couldn't quite get American fans to like him the way that he would have liked. Yeah, if anyone, Sam can relate to the struggle to be liked in America, it is darko. It is the man who in the 2003 NBA draft was chosen number two overall behind LeBron James, but ahead of Carmelo Anthony and Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. And yeah, who is now considered, by the way, maybe the biggest bust in NBA history. Exactly, right. And so I did a story on darko years ago and I stayed in touch with him. So I looked him up when I was there. And while we were catching up, I asked him what he thought of Djokovic, and he brought up the impressions. He was like, to me, when I saw that, it just made me realize how hard this guy is trying. Darko tried any number of things to fit into American culture and with American fans. And pretty much none of them worked. And so what he said to me was, look, I know. I know this never works, okay? You can try as much as you want. You can do all of these things. You can be the funny man, but it's not going to work. And after I had that lunch with darko, a couple of days later, I was with Djokovic's friend, Victor Trotsky, and I told him about what darko had said. And I said, do you think what darko's saying makes sense? And Victor Trotsky said to me, yeah, it does. He said, you know, I don't know why this matters so much to him. It shouldn't matter to him, but it does. It's a 6th title. For Djokovic in Rome, a 38th masters trophy. But maybe more importantly for Novak and sends a message to his rivals ahead of Paris. So Sam, it's important to note here that after he loses in humiliating fashion at home in Serbia in that tournament, he wins outright the Italian open all of which portends better for him, heading into Roland Garros, heading into the French Open. So what are the expectations for this guy as we enter the weekend? I think like I was saying at the beginning, right? Like the French Open is his return to the big stage. You know, the sort of casual sports world doesn't really pay attention to tennis other than the four majors. And this is one of those. And I think if you were looking for, okay, how is Djokovic doing as he kind of steps back onto stage, he's doing well. I mean, winning the Italian open and doing it in a fairly dominant fashion, which he did, obviously portends good things for him and he's feeling better about his game. I think the one thing I would say though is that he still hasn't played that many matches, you know? He still played maybe 60% of the number of sets he would have played like in a regular year and a regular schedule. And so the fitness, which is the biggest issue that he's had, right? Remember he was struggling with the virus, the aftermath of the virus, the metabolism. Now he's going into a tournament where he's going to have to win 7 best of 5 matches on clay. The French Open is the Grand Slam that takes the most out of you in a lot of ways because those matches are long. They are slogs, and Djokovic generally fitnesses one of his strengths, but I think we've seen over the course of this year so far in Serbia and elsewhere that he still trying to find his way in that regard. So if Djokovic is going to struggle, Sam, if you struggle to regain his own God powers. What is the reaction going to be? I mean, what's the reaction if you flames out and he is struggling in that way? What's the reaction if you actually pulls it off? Imagine that sort of contrast for me. I think that if he flames out, then I think there will be a lot of attention paid to what happened in January again. The mismatches, the isolation, the time spent having to be on his own as opposed to playing in tournaments that he otherwise would have played in, I think that will all be revisited. There's no doubt that those two things will be linked. And I think appropriately so. If he wins, I think it will be sort of a more positive spin on the same thing. Look what happened to him in January, and now he's managed to work his way all the way back to the level that he was before, and he wins in Paris again. To me, Pablo, the bigger issue is, what does this do for Novak Djokovic writ large, right? What will happen to Novak Djokovic and the way that he is seen and the way he sees himself after Paris. I think the reality is, is that anybody that thought that he was a villain, both before and because of what happened in Australia is still going to think that whether he wins at Roland Garros or not. And so Djokovic tells himself, hey, keep winning. Keep fighting. You'll finally get the adulation, the love that you've been chasing, I'm not so sure that even if he pulls off another.

For the vast majority of the casual sports fans, the ones who don't watch tennis every week, the French Open, which begins this weekend is going to be the first time that they've thought about Novak Djokovic since that story in January. In a lot of ways, it's his reentry onto the biggest stage. But I also think from Djokovic's perspective, it's an opportunity to try to write the reputation that took a hit clearly in January. This is a guy Pablo, who has been a divisive figure in tennis for a long time. And frankly, he wishes that he were seen in the same way that Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal are. He wants to be this beloved figure and he's not. The cruel irony of wanting to be liked is that all of that wanting. All of that thirst. It all tends to be the problem. It tends to be at least one big reason why lots of people are disliked in the first place. But Novak Djokovic is worth mentioning is not most people. The guy is the number one tennis player in the world at age 34 after starting out in his native Serbia. Novak Djokovic is also arguably the number one tennis player of all time. Even after everything that happened in Australia this year. So today, Sam Borden helps us understand the full story of Novak Djokovic. Who was trying to rewrite it. As we speak. I'm Pablo Torre. It's Friday, may 20th. This is ESPN daily. So Sam, I want to get into Serbia with you where you just were, but before we get there, we need to go back to Australia, a place that Novak Djokovic clearly has no real desire to return to, I would argue after what happened a couple months ago in January at the Australian open because it was supposed to be a celebration for the guy and it became something else that I'm still trying to understand. Something else that is still kind of confusing. So what exactly happened there? Pablo, you're definitely not the only one that was confused by what happened there. It's funny. I was talking to my wife who is not a sports fan before I went to Serbia and I said, oh, I'm going to do this story about Novak Djokovic and she said, oh, that's the guy that tried to sneak into Australia, right? Because that was what she took away from the sort of massive coverage of what happened. In January, and I think that like you like her, a lot of people didn't really follow all of the twists and turns that that whole saga took because it was pretty confusing. The basic premise of what happened is that Australia had and has really intense COVID protocols in terms of who is allowed to enter that country. And at that time, if you were unvaccinated, much like in the United States, if you're not a citizen, coming into the country wasn't allowed. But Djokovic showed up to play the Australian open because he had been offered an exemption by the state government in Melbourne where the open is held that said, okay, fill out these forms and let us know about your COVID history. He'd had COVID in December and you'll be allowed to enter and play in the tournament. The most important thing to understand about Djokovic's situation is that he was offered that invitation by the state government and for most of the pandemic, this various states in Australia had been left alone by the federal government to make those kinds of entry decisions on their own. Right. So Djokovic arrived in Melbourne, under the assumption that his exemption would be fine. He would go through immigration at the airport, like everybody else, and he would go to Melbourne and play in the open. While he was en route to Australia, a real social media uproar happened where lots of Australian citizens, all of a sudden, were kind of like, wait a minute. My family can't come to Australia if they're not vaccinated, why is this guy this Serbian allowed to come to Australia when he's not vaccinated? I think it's a disgrace. We've all done the right thing we've all gone out and got our jobs and our boosters and we have someone that's come from overseas and all of a sudden he's been exempt and can play and I think it's an absolute disgrace and I won't be watching it. There was a real uprising and so while.

How Can You Justify Breaking the Law?

The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast

How Can You Justify Breaking the Law?

"I want to talk in this segment about the concept of natural law. And I want to do it by looking at an article, one of my favorite publications, the quarterly journal called first things, and the article is by POJ named David Novak. Who is a chair of Jewish studies at the university of Toronto. The article is called the bottom line. And it gets to the some of the conundrums around this concept of natural law, which I think a very illuminating. So Novak begins by talking about reading Martin Luther King's letter from the Birmingham jail. And he says what's really interesting here is that Martin Luther King is breaking a law. It's the segregation law of Birmingham. And yet Martin Luther King is arguing that he is right to do this. He's right to break the law. So David Novak raises the obvious question, how can you justify breaking a law? And Martin Luther King answer is, in effect, I'm breaking the law because the law itself is wrong. The law is unjust. So since the law is unjust, it is just to violate the law. Now, if I'm punished for doing that, so be it, but I am in the right and the law is in the wrong. This is king. It just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law of the law of God. So here's Martin Luther King saying in effect that there is a law above the law. Well, what law is that? A kind of a higher law. And this is a very direct appeal to natural law. The concept of natural law is nothing more than the idea of a higher law, a kind of a God given law, a law embedded. You may say in the code of nature itself and what king is saying is that our ordinary laws are positive laws, so called laws that are passed by legislatures and so on need to be judged themselves by this higher by this higher standard.

Novak Djokovic Forced to Miss Austrailian Open Over Vaccination Status

"By the way, the number one ranked tennis player has now left Australia refused to get vaccinated. And the court ruled that it wasn't a question of whether or not the health ministry was following science and not following science a question of whether or not they had the authority to prevent him from entering the country since he's not been vaccinated. And the high court in Australia ruled that they did, and now he is gone. To my knowledge, not a single one of his competitors, said or put out a tweet along the lines of while I disagree with Novak's decision to remain unvaccinated. He is fit. He is young. He is healthy. He's one of the most fit people on the planet. And is highly highly highly unlikely since he's already had the coronavirus survived and has natural immunity to give it to somebody else, particularly since every single one of the other players of us have been vaccinated.

"Well and as i say i mean it seemed like there was a little bit of that nickel and diming going on pre pandemic and then following the The lockdowns and the shutdowns and the reopening that seemed to go away and everybody seemed pretty happy about that and it seemed to be the direction things were going and now i'm not so much. It seemed like they were going to go that route and it was really really optimistic but one start. People started coming back then. He started seeing at the bottom of your bill. Eight cova surcharge franchise fees. All these different things are being attacked the bottom of bills there was no housekeeping in the hotels anymore. You'd have to go downstairs if you wanna towels. It's like all these ridiculous things that they were taking away from people and adding onto instead of saying. Hey let's throw everything at you give you a reason to come back. They didn't do that. i got into one hell of an argument over a gentleman who handles a lot of chef driven functions here in town. He represents a lot of very interesting. chef owned restaurants And i posted on my facebook page about my objection to these. These kovin fees that were that were tacking on and he said you have no idea what restaurants are going through. I said as a. I don't need to know that the businesses that i'm patronizing are suffering if you have to raise prices. I don't wanna see them itemized at the bottom of that bill. I wanna know that this is the price of my entree. This is the price of my drink. This is the tax. And i will choose the gratuity. That's all i need to see. I don't want you to give me a sad story about how your restaurant is suffering while paying. My bill. absorb that into your prices. That's all you need to do. I always maintained that with all of those different kinds of add on fees whether it's as you say the concession franchise or a service fee or kovic fee or resort fees or any of that kind of stuff. Just throw it into the bill. I mean i get it with restaurants and small businesses and large businesses over the last eighteen months. Everybody has suffered. But i feel like you will piss people off less. If you just did a across the board two percent or three percent price hike on your menu items as opposed to itemizing that two or three percent on the bottom of the bill they would absolutely would not notice it. I mean because if a salad dick you got the last time was thirteen. Ninety nine and this time it's fifteen ninety nine. That was six months ago. Lot of water's gone under the bridge unified to be back in. Oh hey was that that recall two dollars. No you're not gonna notice that it seems so simple seem so obvious in yet that's lost in the city very much lost and there are people that get paid to sit around and decide these things. I think they're good idea is oh sure. The customers won't care if we raise the resort v by another ten dollars. We won't we won't give them anything for it but we're just gonna let them know that effective such and such. They're going to be paying forty five dollars on top of their forty-five room rate. Well and i sometimes wonder too with with the big corporations running things. You're just a number. You're just a customer. You're not mr novak. Mr walker for the most part the average person is just customer one seven five two seven two and the way they look at it is well. If this person doesn't come back somebody else will come in to fill their spot if you treat your customers as stupid people. You're more than likely gonna lose them. That's where i come in hopefully to warn people to avoid places like that where you're going to be treated like an idiot and send you a directions of places that are gonna value you as a customer as a guest going to welcome you and give you more than you expected. There are still places here in town that care about you coming to visit us. They wanna go above and beyond to make your experience special. There are places like that. I'm going to stand behind and say come on over here. Come on over here.

You could see a young black men being assaulted by police. That young man is now standing trial. Wrongly accused of assaulting the police even decides to come forward and offer his tape as evidence that the man is innocent as helpful as the tape is for the defense and makes the jurors cringe and avert their eyes. Because ethan looked so awkward and kind of clueless then the prosecutor place excerpts of the tape while interrogating ethan which turns into a humiliating critique of his sexual ability and his credibility here so he responds when the prosecutor asks why he was watching the tape. The musical here in the background is from the sex tape I guess i was lonely..

"You know another example the same phenomenon and then if you wanted to criticize seats for anything it should have been that. He basically trotted out some misinformation about vaccinations and being anti vaccine mean. The greek government came out and criticized him for his irresponsible. And a scientific remarks about definitely feel like conscious or unconscious sublimate and louisa. Just how much focus. There was on this dumb non controversy controversy during the us open. Absolutely i mean. I mean it's it's hard to know sometimes when you are a semi news and semi entertainment organization You know what kind of calculus is going into. That is that they don't wanna get in legal. Trouble is that they said comfortable. For whatever particular announcers is it They don't think it's gonna be good for ratings whereas you know something as dumb as bathroom breaks is kind of captured. The imagination of skeptical logically minded immature public. I don't know. I mean it's it's hard to say i mean i i think that I think that broadcasts have an ongoing tradition of blowing Discussions about a lot of these things. I mean i think you know. In the first game of the season. Chris collins worth referred to antonio brown's million dollar smile and some quote some off the field stuff you know referring to really serious allegations against antonio brown so. I think that that works needs to do a better job at you. Know facing This public information and it does seem that this is a sort of no go area. Which is is pretty inexcusable and needs to be addressed In some way either by ourselves or by the public the forces them to do it. I think as the season goes on with the saints in with winston This will be talked about more. I think this week one storyline of i start. They blew out. the packers. is maybe going to push things in the direction that we've been talking about but we'll see i mean i wouldn't be surprised if it needs to be ignored but someone at some point or a lot of someone's at at at some point argonaut address and we'll we'll see How he deals with it. How the team deals with it. The nfl deals with it but You know steph. One of the more notable results from week one is just how terrible the jaguars looked against tyrod taylor and the houston texans and there was a story that came out by jason lockenfora of cbs sports. Before the game even started. I think there was just about how urban meyer mr raw college man Is everybody hates them. they're already i mean. Maybe i'm exaggerating a little bit but you know wanting them to take the preseason games more seriously being mad that they lost them just seems like a really really bad recipe for for an nfl team steph and just kind of like almost a cliche of like how college guys don't succeed in the nfl just like treating the players like children etcetera yeah and the inability to recognize that these are two different businesses. Whenever a college coach comes in the nfl. Very frequently is kind of amazing. It's almost as if shockingly football coaches don't spend any time reading about anything else but their own teams and preparing for the next game and even after this game. The jaguars lost people that thought. Trevor lawrence was going to be an all star quarterback and all pro quarterback out of the chute were wrong. I mean this is still a untested rookie quarterback in a very different and more advanced league and after the game urban. Meyer said it's inexcusable. The things that need to be fixed three preseason games. You'd think we'd have that fixed. So that's something we're that we're going to do. I would guesstimate. You would not see that again. that's inexcusable. That sort of garbage will not go over well in the locker room and the fact that urban meyer doesn't recognize that these are grown up adult players and not college students that he has complete and total control over is if not surprising at least entertaining for those of us who can't stand the sort of sanctimony us bullshit. The college coaches spout. I think unhinged is one of the words that came up in the. Cbs report about him. But yeah i mean. Let's not forget that he's not like he had a reputation for really knowing how to treat college students. Either i mean there were there. Were roughly can look red flags for years. I mean i do think that one of the things that's interesting. That's come come out of some of these reports and also the first game is kind of you know incompetent. You can trace back to the coaching staff. I mean a lot of the you can talk about drop passes and things like that but you know there were there were there. Were penalized for illegal formation. Three times you know. I mean there i mean there's just i mean it's just it's just a kind of in the offseason. He had difficulties figuring out the nfl schedule. Sort of overriding people. I mean it sort of it is like a joke. I mean it is funny. I mean this is the guy who brought back tim tebow. You know. I mean it's like he's living his own like hard knocks life It didn't cut. Tim tebow however and i'm sure it was very very difficult decision for him in the staff. Let's finish by talking about. I think our favorite moment of the past week which was cam newton's forty-three minute what. Tmz described in a phrase. That still makes me laugh. Every time i see it a sit down interview with his dad laughed. I laughed in that interview cam. Newton said that his alra his hairstyle the way talks way addresses and the way he dances. The reason bill belichick cut him last month. The reason why they released me is because indirectly. I was gonna be a distraction. 'cause i've been the star without being started and this was how verbally or in my aura. Okay just my own. Patriots started mac. John's the rookie lost to the dolphins stephan. Was this. Tell us a little bit more about the sit down interview. The camden had with his dad. And would you say that this actually was kind of a display of self awareness on campus. Part i mean he seemed to be pretty candid You know he. He said that they that he thinks that he would have been cut. Regardless of the fact that he seems to not have been vaccinated and had to miss five days of practice for violating protocol..

"I hope you enjoyed this first part of the interview with Novak and now I want to bring you the second part where me and Jay Shetty interview him together into this new episode right here. For me it's super important to have clear goals and short term goals long-term goals. What are the goals for this season? What is the goal in the next three months? Check check check that go through that with my team with myself. With my family, and then what is the long term goal? And I think being clear with all these things, and, you know, I know that identification sometimes is. Maybe moving you further away from that harmony and that peaceful state. But I feel like in a professional sport is super important to identify and to be very clear with yourself why you are playing that sport. While you're doing this, why am I traveling? I have two kids at home, waiting for me and I don't see them for 5 weeks. I mean, why am I doing that? There must be a super strong and good of a reason for me to be able to leave my kids and my wife at home. And to not see them 5 weeks. And so winning is not enough. You know, there has to be all these three things that I've told you about is something that fuels me every single day. And it's all a journey. It's all a journey. I try to tell myself, look, you know, it's about the journey. It's not about destination. You know, when you that's why, you know, I've also, you know, I felt my career when I reached certain results. They were really big. For example, 2016, when I won French Open, I was, I was holding all four slams at the same time. I think once in the history of sport, all four of the same year. No, it was not in the same year. It was in two different years, but I was holding it once I was champion of war false lands. And I was, you know, dominant number one and everything was great, but I just didn't feel something felt empty..

"And I think because I had these objectives in life, I managed to have the mental clarity. I managed to kind of a Tennyson Andre Agassi. My coach now I'm proud to have him in my team. He always says, you know, in tennis, you work from top backwards from basically setting up a goal, and then you work your way back. And he's just you know exactly the whole season how he's going to look like because this is my season goal. Let me work my way back to this moment. So this is probably a definition of how I felt at that moment mentally and the plans that I had the visions that I had. I was 7 I already I was making out of plastic or like a little paper materials I was making that Wimbledon trophies. You know, stuff like this. It was very, very clear in my mind that that's going to be my mission. Have you ever doubted yourself going on to being a professional and going against some of these top players for the first time? Did you ever have doubt? Or were you always like, I can beat them? I can be the best. Yeah, I had plenty of doubts. And plenty of doubtful moments have I probably the one that stands out the most was back in 2010. When I was already number three of the world, I was really Grand Slam winner. I was established player in top 5 in the world already three, four years before that. So I was already into it. One of my first Grand Slam in Australian open in January 2008, I was 20 years old. And it was a dream come true, the whole church. I was very successful in junior days and everything. It was just I had this upward spiral and trajectory in my tennis career in my life and everything was great. Everything was great. And then all of a sudden I had this period of two and a half, three years where I didn't win a slam. Really? I was managing to be three, four in the world. But I struggled a lot. And for me, being number three of the world wasn't enough. I was not satisfied with that. And I always go back and say, wait, okay, what I was 7, 8 years old, my dream. Life coal was always to be number one. And when Wimbledon, that's it. I need to achieve that. No matter what. But then I reached the kind of mentally low point in my career. I think it was after Roland Garros, you know, one of the four slams. And I lost. I was two sets to love up. I lost in 5 sets in quarterfinals. Against the guy called Jurgen Meltzer, he was top ten of the world very good player. But I had him. I mean, I had a match and I just lost. I just had a breakdown. I remember going first to my parents and talking about this and that. And I just cried and I don't know if this is worth it. I don't know if I should keep going and my father was like, tough enough stuffing up. No, no, no, you know, but it wasn't enough. I felt I needed to think about it more. I felt I needed to share more. So I went to my coach at the time I invited and one of my best Friends in life in my form of physiotherapist median. And I was in the room and remember sitting on the floor. Again, I had another breakdown and I was saying, I don't know, you know, and they were like, okay, take your time. Let's first, okay, breathe and it's come down. Let's look back. You know, and they were really, really wise for taming..

"I could still do or I have no clue where I'm gonna be tomorrow because these bombs are right around me within miles. Were you able to practice where you just not sure? Were you just trying to I was practicing big time? Yeah, as I told you, you know, that was your time in no school. No school. I mean, I enjoyed school. I think it's great. But at the same time, I like to be on the tennis court more. And just huge passion of mine. And I started to do better and better and start to win some local tournaments. I was 11, 12 years old. And during those two and a half months of bombing, we actually spent after the second week was done because in the first couple of weeks, we were like, okay, let's just survive. You know, and let's just figure things out. We don't know what's going to happen. And then off the second week, we were like, okay, this is going to happen. God knows how long it's going to go for. So we might as well continue living our same normal everyday life, whatever it is. Whatever that is, you know? And so I spent a lot of time in tennis courts. And we had a lot of tournaments. And I actually remember I haven't been part of it, but I was still young still little, but there were people that were organizing this so called target group activities. So they would because they were bombing our bridges as well. So they would go out and one of most important bridges that connects the two important parts of the town. So people will go there literally more or less every day with t-shirts that would have like a target drone on them and also on their faces, they would draw targets or their top of their heads. And they would sing songs. They would be together united. And that was like a message out there, okay, we are to target try to do something now. Wow. This is us. We're here. So thankfully nothing happened there, but that was how powerful this whole experience was for people to get together. It was devastating. It was all these things that we talked about. There's something positive out of it is that people survive because and we got through it as people as country because we were together. We were united. And we talked about it the other day on the lunch is that I was complaining to you a little bit about Serbian people that we are not united when we are supposed to be. Right. We are calling each other down. That joke, yeah. I think, especially younger generations at that time. They were like, okay, this is our time to be rebellious. You know, when you're younger, you are really, you know, you want to be part of those activities and it's fun. So we try to turn it into fun. Yeah. You know of course we could during bombings. Exactly. Now, when did you start to fully believe in yourself that you were able to achieve what you wanted to do in tennis? When did the belief sit in or you're like, yes, this is possible for me. Oh, very early. I knew already I'm going to become number one of the world. Like I was 7, I think I was probably first was the first TV show I had guessed in one of these kids shows national stars or something. Something like that, and I said that tennis is a commitment. It's my obligation is something I have to do. I mean, I was already I was so disciplined, you know, at that time..

We never published this interview, so I wanted you to have both of these together to get the full context of where he's been throughout his journey and what he's been up to lately.

This is a very special episode again. Me and Jay Shetty spent some time with Novak for a full day playing tennis and basketball and we went golfing and did all these different sports together and really got to see behind the scenes more of how he thinks how he acts how he trains.

Guess You could say in a sense literally with news from from the Balkans this weekend which we probably timestamped us, we are speaking on. What is today Wednesday morning the right as cracked. So we are seventy two hours into this Kindly, call it a narrative I spoken a lot about this. I've written about this I will say before we can talk. Specifics I'm very surprised at the stem, and this is really world news. I mean I was getting calls. From Aljazeera the BBC and then I just Mary. Carillo is on MSNBC Today. Mean is really become much more than tennis story. For better worse I would argue worse, but this really has been. The kind of story had ripples beyond the the sport and beyond sports period I think a lot of people are. Sort of trying to figure out how we eat back to normal I think we're trying to see I think we're starting to see some real. Sort of disparities in countries, and even here in the United States with how this is not only being managed, and not only with the data says, but just in terms of philosophy, so I think this is the story of really found its way into into a much broader story, and this has become absolutely world news. I mean this is as big as a ten stories we've had since there's been a match and I guess what why don't we just start there? I, mean Jamie. Let's start with. Top Line Impressions of the Adria Tour Novak Djokovic in the last seventy two hours. Yeah you're right to say that tennis exhibitions don't normally get this much press. I think it's always a funny thing with antennas. When people you know who aren't as familiar with the sport, they see results from from an Axa, whether it's early in the year late in the year, and you know somebody, beat, someone, and most people just sort of shrug it off, but it's as you said really interesting to see how much this has really gone across the world. World and everyone is talking about it and rightfully, so because this is a big issue in I think it was from the Gecko, when we started to see the photos and the videos of everything that was happening between the hugging and everything that was happening on the court, and then of course everything that was happening all off the court. All of those images in those photos are really going to be the mark of this event of this tournament. And jovovich whether or not he deserves all of the blame or not will also be the face of this issue for a long time coming he is the organizer of this event of course, and also the oldest in terms of the players that was there and for me. That was something that you know. He really needed to use his his advantage, and the the younger players thereof and born Cora and others even Dmitrov for what it's worth. You know are are younger than him. They look up to him and for him to invite these players to come to this tournament in for him to organize this in the way that he did end to have the results that we had is just It's not great, and I wish that the best tennis player you know the number one in the world right now had thought a little bit more about how he was exposing all these people. It's unsafe conditions and took a little bit more time to think about how what the results and the repercussions of this could have been. Yeah I mean I think no-one covered themselves in glory. I mean there's already been a lot of finger. Pointing joke of its father have having moved on from from fettered. Baby is now pointing fingers at Dmitrov as the culprit, I mean this is just ugly stuff I. Mean I think we ought to pause here in and say we do hope everyone makes. A speedy and easy recovery as as nick, curious I wrote. Nick curious turned into the the Wiseman of tennis Munich. curios thoughts on all of this have been. A lot more reasonable and responsible than anyone else's and the nick curious very rightly says this virus is not a joke, so. Go further. Let's be clear. We hope everybody makes a a quick recovery from virus that we know you know. Six figures over is can be fatal. having said all that I think I mean it's sort of interesting in the grand scheme of things, people who are casual fans or not even sports fans at all. This is hubris recklessness, and here's this athlete who somehow has been living in. Sick enough bubble so that he doesn't realize it. You can pass this on other people and hey. Viruses are really contagious and things like masks really work I think in tennis circles they're also is this added layer of all of this joke of its context. Pat mcelroy saw scented to Chris Clarry that look. Let's be honest, fettered doll Serena a doing things like this very. Very Carrillo as the MSNBC today was very outspoken about Jovic in particular. This is you know I? I think. She said that the guy has lost a match, but he's made error after error after error in this pandemic and I think there is a joke of its context at least in tennis circles where this is the guy who has thumbed his nose at science. This is someone. Just made a statement about what he thinks about vaccinations, he's made his statements about whatever the positive energy affecting water quality. He's already been trouble in Spain for flouting. Social distancing so. And this is remember to someone who was not supportive of the US Open. Because he thought some of the procedures.

"Everyone John Wartime here is this week's sports illustrated tennis podcast hope everyone is well healthy wearing a mask not at a Belgrade disco topless, which I suppose is where we ought to start Jamie I'm glad you're you're with me today. How's everything in your world? It is good I. AM also not in a Belgrade club dancing around in close quarters. Shouting. Indoors So, that's a win I. You know I had wanted to do A. Normal podcast. We're going to talk to Donald Dell longtime agent. He had some very interesting <hes> thoughts about how to merge the ATP and the WPA we were GonNA talk about. The plan for the US Open and tennis getting back in there some events this week. We were talking about the Patrick. marauded lose event, and the Charleston ended in of course <hes> everything <hes> blew up metaphorically and I. Guess You could say in a sense literally with news from <hes> from the Balkans this weekend which we probably timestamped us, we are speaking on. What is today Wednesday morning the right as cracked. So we are seventy two hours into this <hes>. Kindly, call it a narrative <hes>. I spoken a lot about this. I've written about this I will say before we can talk. Specifics I'm very surprised at the stem, and this is really world news. I mean I was getting calls. From Aljazeera the BBC and then I just Mary. Carillo is on MSNBC Today. Mean is really become much more than tennis story. For better worse I would argue worse, but this really has been. The kind of story had ripples beyond the the sport and beyond sports period I think a lot of people are. Sort of trying to figure out how we eat back to normal I think we're trying to see I think we're starting to see some real. Sort of disparities in countries, and even here in the United States with how this is not only being managed, and not only with the data says, but just in terms of philosophy, so I think this is the story of really found its way into into a much broader story, and this has become absolutely <hes> world news. I mean this is as big as a ten stories we've had since there's been a match and I guess what why don't we just start there? I, mean Jamie. Let's start with. Top Line Impressions of <hes> the Adria Tour Novak Djokovic in the last seventy two hours. Yeah you're right to say that tennis exhibitions don't normally get this much press. I think it's always a funny thing with antennas. When people you know who aren't as familiar with the sport, they see results from from an Axa, whether it's early in the year late in the year, and you know somebody, beat, someone, and most people just sort of shrug it off, but it's as you said really interesting to see how much this has really gone across the world. World and everyone is talking about it and rightfully, so because this is a big issue in I think it was from the Gecko, when we started to see the photos and the videos of everything that was happening between the hugging and <hes> everything that was happening on the court, and then of course everything that was happening all off the court. All of those images in those photos are really going to be the mark of this event of this tournament. And jovovich whether or not he deserves all of the blame or not will also be the face of this issue for a long time coming <hes> he is the organizer of this event of course, and also the oldest <hes> in terms of the players that was there and for me. That was something that you know. He really needed to use his his advantage, and the the younger players thereof and born Cora and others <hes> even Dmitrov for what it's worth.
