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.

"Turn Djokovic towards eastern medicine. Yeah, the bread guy. Sorry, that's how I'm gonna refer to him now. For all time, is the breadcrumbs. He's the bread guy. Right, yes. When I talk to the bread guy, set to Jewish, he said to me that he sees Djokovic as almost akin to Martin Luther King Jr. in terms of how he's seen something different than what the rest of the world is seen when it comes to the pandemic. Obviously, that comparison is fairly absurd. Yeah. But I think what he was getting at was he believes that Djokovic was doing the right thing. He believes that Djokovic was doing the thing.

"Him a threat to public health. 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.

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.

"Novak Djokovic leaves Australia after losing deportation appeal by The Associated Press, Melbourne, Australia. Novak Djokovic left Australia on Sunday evening after losing his final bid to avoid deportation and play in the Australian open, despite being unvaccinated for COVID-19, a court earlier unanimously dismissed the number one ranked tennis players challenge to cancel his Visa. Djokovic a 34 year old from Serbia, said he was extremely disappointed by the ruling but respected it. Amassed Djokovic was photographed in a Melbourne airport lounge with two government officials in black uniforms. He left on an Emirates flight to Dubai, the same United Arab Emirates city he flew to Australia from. He has won a record 9 Australian open titles, including three in a row, but this time, won't even get the chance to try. I respect the court's ruling, and I will cooperate with the relevant authorities in relation to my departure from the country. He said in a statement. Djokovic said he was uncomfortable that the focus had been on him since his Visa was first canceled on arrival at Melbourne's airport on January 6th. I hope that we can all now focus on the game and tournament I love, he said. The national federation that runs the tournament, tennis Australia said it respects the decision of the federal court. We look forward to a competitive and exciting Australian open 2022 and wish all players the best of luck. It said in a statement. A deportation order also usually includes a three year ban on returning to Australia. In Serbia, president Alexander vucic said the hearing was a farce with a lot of lies. They think that they humiliated Djokovic with this ten day harassment, and they actually humiliated themselves. If you said that the one who was not vaccinated has no right to enter, Novak would not come or would be vaccinated, vucic told reporters. He said he told Djokovic after talking to him that we can't wait to see him in Serbia to return to his country to come where he is always welcome. He did not say whether Djokovic said he would first go to Serbia after his deportation. Chief justice James allsopp said the ruling came down to whether the minister's decision was irrational, or legally unreasonable. Australian minister Alex hawke welcomed the decision, his office did not immediately provide detail on how or when Djokovic would leave..

"The top seed is we've also had I think few dropouts here because critique of it is now in the top position. I think ash Barty pulled out of a change of schedule. We got muguruza in there, also at the bottom of the drawers the second seed. Quite exciting. We've got on your ball Petra kvitova in the second round, which is quite an interesting matchup. Kvitova is unseated at this 500, which just looks a bit funny when you look at the draw exactly be quite fun. I think Belinda bencic as well an unseated player she had a fantastic end to last season at the Billie Jean King cup, which I was there for. So I think she could be quite a dangerous threat as well in that bottom half. I think Paola Biden we've all seen her how well she plays on a hardcore as well that the WTA final she came through Yelena osta penko. So I think yeah, there's quite a few as you would expect at the 500 level event quite a few dangerous players, but I'd expect a seeded player to come through. I haven't even spoken about in net continent as well, who again could be one of those players, you just kind of carries on where they picked off at the end of last season. Yeah, we just don't know. She's like 7th in the world now and yeah, her exploits at the end of the game. I keep forgetting that happened. I don't know, just like I happened at the end of the season, that crazy streak she went on. And yeah, be curious to see if she can continue it. I mean, she could face the winner what she comes through her second round match could face the winner of kvitova or jabor. So it could be quite fun. Lots of tasty matchups. And I'm sure plenty more to come over the next few weeks. I think we'll be back on Thursday for an Australian open preview episode once the draw has been made. And I guess by then we'll know if Novak Djokovic is definitely playing or not. I'm sure if there's going to be a reversal of the recent court hearing that it will happen before then. Otherwise they might just be like, I'll be eve of the tournament. Oh, sorry, mate. We've decided to chuck you. You know what Kim? I sort of hope not so we can get like a de facto like luckiest loser placed at the very top in the double one seeded position. Which would be which would be hilarious. But I don't, yeah, I don't think that is going to happen. It's already been a much of so much of a shambles. I don't think I can take much more of it, but we will have to see.

"That you're showing open have to be double vaccinated and again, as a result of that, it's just made I think tennis Australia lose its credibility. And yes, they've got a responsibility to run a tennis tournament and yes, that has become more and more complex in the last couple of seasons because of the pandemic. And I think maybe they needed to factor in more running a tournament now involves communicating with your state with the government as well and making sure that you're all universally aligned because from this from this situation it's quite clear that I think no one was sort of aligned. Everyone was in the dark. Fans are still in the dark and it's created this situation where there's so many different parties at play here and we're still less than a week now to the main draw qualifying is already underway. We still don't know if the top seed is going to be there. I think also Djokovic has been used as a bit of a political football by Scott Morrison and the federal government and then the Victorian government. And I think we're not in Australia. We don't really, I'm not going to lie, I don't follow Australian politics. We're very separated from writing and so therefore I think it's hard for us to comment because we don't really know the situation on the ground and all the kind of complexities, politically. But I think that and this is where I do feel some sympathy for Djokovic is that he's been kind of used and caught up in this where they're trying to because he's so famous use him as a bit of a, I guess, example for their own particular political causes. But in the kind of wider context as well, and this is perhaps where I don't know if he's going to speak about this, but a lot of people have been saying this facility where Djokovic was being held, the park hotel in Melbourne is where a lot of refugees are being held. Some of them have been there for years and years and you know it's draw a light on that situation and a lot of people have thought, well, if there's maybe one good thing to come from this is that you can sort of shine a light on the situation of people who are just being detained and they're not getting a hearing in three days time. They're having to remain there indefinitely. And it does kind of obviously bring that into context and I think some of them have spoken out and yes, they are there and everyone sort of asking everyone about what it's like for him what are the conditions like, but I'm sure that his conditions won't quite as bad as the conditions that everyone else in that building has had to endure and orange during. I mean, Kim, the other thing that is coming out at the moment, which I do think is going to affect the it's going to be more long term and I think something fans can actually identify with. Yes, they're all these kind of legal proceedings going on at the moment. And again, I'm in this position where, yes, they're happening. They feel like they're quite complex. But there is one there is one instance where, you know, coming out at the moment, is this story about Novak Djokovic testing positive with PCR tests on the 16th of December. And then him subsequently being shown doing activities out in the public. Photos with, I think, youngsters in Serbia on the 17th, which suggest and we don't know this for a fact, but it does suggest that he knowingly had a positive PCR test, but was still going out and doing Novak Djokovic swings and trying to be the best person that he was, but again, if this is if this is right, it just shows again a disregard, I think, to the severity of the situation in the UK, if that happened, you'd need to go and put yourself into isolation. And again, I think this is something that I think fans will are going to judge him on and perhaps his legacy as a tennis player is going to be judged on things like this because this is something that I think everyone can identify with, especially people who've already had coronavirus. I mean, where do you stand on this? Because I think this is, I think, I think now we're getting to a point. This is the question I think a lot of fans want to know the answer of. Yeah, this is the bit that sticks for me. You test positive on the 16th. You then attend. I think actually it wasn't a governmental event. It was like a ceremony on the 17th. No masks, shaking hands, why on earth, the day after you've tested positive, would you go out to a public event, you're being photographed, you're on camera. You know, it's probably going to spread all over the country that you're doing this event. You're coming into contact with loads and loads of people, why on earth would you think that was appropriate? Given that we're almost two years into this pandemic, you know, I assumed that Serbia also has an isolation requirement if you test positive. It just shows a complete disregard and lack of respect for the rules and the virus and it's not just an anti vaccine is he sort of just a COVID denier generally. For me, this is the thing that I hope that every tennis journalist is going to ask in his press conferences before the tournament after he plays because I just think fundamentally you can not get away from this the dates do not lie, you know, and he's submitted this paperwork this evidence that says clearly on the 16th positive test, I am going to be very interested to see what he says about this because his family were asked about it in the press conference that they held today and their response was oh, we're going to have to finish the press conference now. They could not come up with they didn't even attempt to answer the question. So for me, it's either it shows a complete kind of lack of moral regard by the fact that you're going out the day after knowing you've got coronavirus and spreading it Willy nilly, or perhaps the PCR test on the 16th, perhaps I'm not saying that it's been faked, but if you had somehow managed to get a fake positive result, and then you knew that you actually didn't have it, then you'd feel like, yeah, I can go out in a box because I don't actually have COVID. Could that also be a possibility? But I just think if you're going to like in that instance if you're going to conveniently get COVID just before you go to the Australian open, like it seems strange at Novak didn't tweet.

"We know that now from the papers that have been filed and the impression I got Kim, when his story broke and my immediate reaction was particularly with that Instagram post with the medical saying he got the medical exemption. For me, that was the spark that kind of lit the fuse on the Australian on the Australian public while he was probably asleep on his flight over to Australia that really kind of angered them in the sense that in some people's eyes, this was a guy who has not been vaccinated, but at the same time doesn't want to accept the consequences of going unvaccinated because, you know, we've got players like tennis sandrine, ebert, as well, who have chosen also not to get to that not to get the vaccine. But have also accepted that, okay, in that case, I'm not going to play in Australia. But for Novak Djokovic, you know, people will say, well, he should accept those consequences, but the fact that he went after the exemption shows that he didn't want to compromise and potentially go after another Grand Slam title. And that I think was really the start, I think, of where this anger I think from the Australian public has come from because this is in a country or this is in the state of Victoria, definitely where the restrictions that they've been under for such an amount of time, it really is a deep, deep contrast with the situation that Novak Djokovic finds himself in. Yeah, and I think Djokovic is someone who I guess being anti vaccination is part of his identity. And I think now more so than ever, you know, he's come to embody it, I feel like on the biggest stage of all. And now I feel like he is sort of a martyr for the anti vaxxers cause and I think when he posted that for me and I read exemption regulations, I thought, oh, well, that's very convenient and I also was quite skeptical. And I thought, well, this could be a load of tos. I was thinking he's obviously found someone to say that or maybe he does have a medical condition or someone's able to sign off on something to get him to go and obviously we realize now that tennis Australia basically obviously realized that some players wouldn't be able to play if they weren't taking the vaccine. And they said that actually if you have a positive PCR COVID test within the last 6 months that this would then make you eligible, which is what Novak has obviously supplied paperwork and documentation, which confirms a positive COVID test on the 16th of December, which is his, that is his evidence, his exemption. And I think tennis Australia basically, obviously, you know, your hosting a world famous sporting event. You want the number one player there, you want someone there, he's going for 21 slams, you know, making history. At the end of the day, the event is a product, you want to sell it and you want the world number one there. So you're going to do all you can to get him to play. People were saying, you know, they wouldn't have bent the rules so much for world number 200, of course, you know, they're going to do all they can to allow someone like Djokovic who is openly anti vaccination to play. And obviously the issue was that the Visa requirements didn't match up with what tennis Australia requirements were and I feel like tennis Australia didn't communicate where they should have done with the federal authorities in the Victorian government as well. And then you get this mismatch. But yeah, fundamentally, I think Novak posting on social media, obviously alerted, not just the Australian public and the media, but also that alerted the border authorities. And you know, he might have been able to sneak in silently if he hadn't have posted, perhaps, and obviously he wasn't maybe to know that that would cause such a furor. But you sort of think in hindsight with this whole thing has happened if he hadn't have posted. Yes. And we know with Djokovic, we've seen, I think, examples in the past of PR own goals where he has thought, right, this is a good thing to do. I'm thinking like the adria cup, for example, but has then kind of turned and snowballed and been a big own goal for him. And I think again, that sort of Instagram post was another example of that. And if he hadn't posted it, then yeah, who knows, whether the situation would have been more easily handled, but at the same time, I don't think he should have ever been in a situation where he was at the border, having taken the flight and not being let in. There is, I think the communication between tennis Australia and the government from that side, that needed to be, I think, firmed up a lot sooner than it was and I think that's sort of what led to this kind of circus situation because we all know I think most people know kind of going on holiday or going to another country when you get to kind of border control. It's like the one it's probably the one place where they're going to take absolutely nothing, regardless of who you are, whether you're a celebrity, for example, you can't flow without a passport. There's no way of getting around that and it just felt from there. You know, this situation decided to kind of unravel and become and go from a sports story to a global a global news story and I think the problem, the problem I think is that it's just very messy and with the government saying one thing, there's no coordination I feel and Craig tidally obviously I think once Novak Djokovic to play, he's come out and said that, but ultimately it might not be up to him. It might just be up to the government and maybe he didn't realize or accept that. And that's maybe why, you know, we're in this point where we still don't even know if he's going to be able to defend his title. I think Craig, you know, there was a bit of controversy last year wasn't there with the conditions of the quarantine and obviously players not being very happy with that. And he kind of came under quite a bit of criticism then and obviously criticism again this year and maybe maybe Craig Charlie's not the right man for the job to lead up this tournament. I feel that, you know, I know he, I think he's quite close with Djokovic and obviously did want him there, but perhaps I got the impression that it was almost like luring Novak there under a full sense of yeah everything will be fine. We've sorted it all out and obviously in reality, that was not the case. And I think it's yeah, it is a bit embarrassing for tennis Australia is a bit embarrassing for, I guess the country as a whole. Yeah, because I feel like the government or the government authorities have effectively undermined tennis Australia when they rejected his Visa and put him into put him into this kind of hotel and I wonder whether the government they saw the public reaction to Novak Djokovic posting about this exemption and they listened to the public are actually like, we've got an opportunity to do maybe a U turn on this and really kind of, yeah, as you said, kind of make Djokovic this person that we're going to make an example of and try and get brownie points from the Australian public because this is a guy who's not vaccinated. We shouldn't be allowed allowing him to travel freely through Australia given that we've been under such restrictions..

"In Adelaide. And Rafael Nadal makes it title 89 in Melbourne. Kim today is the 10th of January and we are here to catch up on the week in tennis at passing shot headquarters. But before we do that, how are you doing? How has the off season been for you? I know it's been incredibly short for all tennis fans out there including well, including ourselves was your do you have a good Christmas break? Christmas feels like quite a long time ago now, Joel, not going to lie because this new season has started with quite a bang. You know, tennis has become prime time news, which I have to say I didn't think that would actually really happen. And so Christmas seems quite a long time ago, but I'm really, I'm very much looking forward to AO and now we've got all the warm up events underway and obviously lots to discuss today. But I trust you had a nice nice week off as well. Two weeks off three weeks however long it's been now. Yes, I did. I got some tennis themed Christmas presents as well. I got a Wimbledon mouse mat, which I'm now using at work, which is great. But yeah, it's been quite chilled. It's been a bit hectic as well. Lots of Friends getting in touch with me who I wouldn't have put them down as tennis fans, but yeah, since the drama of Novak Djokovic and well, Djokovic versus Australia, it feels like, yeah, tennis has been global news. It has been on the back pages. It has been on the front pages. And again, it just adds up to that. That thing that we all know as tennis fans is that tennis never sleeps, does it Kim it? Regardless of the off season is always something to talk about and 2022 is just started with a big, big dose of controversy it seems. It has and we will be getting on to that in just a second. But before we, before we properly start Joel, we just wanted to say to everyone listening, we hope you also had a nice break over the festive season and we are happy. Happy that we're back. And thank you to everyone who has so far supported our crowdfund as well. Just want to say a big, big thank you. We've been overwhelmed with the amount of support that we've had and the donations coming in through that. So thank you massively to everyone who's contributed. There is still time if you haven't, we will remind everyone later as well. But just wanted to say thank you before we start. But yeah, like you just said, Joel has been a bit of a mess, but also very interesting. As a tennis fan, as a general sports fan as well, I don't really know where to start, but because I'm sure pretty much everyone listening will have been following what's going on. So we probably don't need to explain all the background so much. But the early hours of this morning, you know, when we all woke up, we found out that Novak has been released from where he was being held at the park hotel in Melbourne. He's now free to go about his business. He's been seen practicing on rod laver arena. You know, he's very much there in it to play the tournament and win it. Still subject to a possibility of the immigration minister, I think, you know, overriding the judge's decision in the hearing. There is still possibility that he could exercise his powers. In which case, I think if that happened, I think that would be a final decision. He has the power to ignore the judge and just kind of take an overriding decision. I don't know if Djokovic appear again. Kim, if that happened, he would get the Serbian mob on the streets of Melbourne would be would be after it would be because that would be we're waiting to see on that decision. But yeah, it's very interesting if he decides to exercise that right. I feel that Australia unlikely to go for that because we've seen in the streets of Melbourne, quite a bit of Ferrari, Novak's fans have been sort of pepper sprayed by police. They were chasing a car down the street because they thought that was the car that contained Novak. I think actually it was perhaps a member of his team. It wasn't actually Novak, but the police obviously felt that the fans were, I don't know. They didn't want them around, so they were pepper spray them. I don't really know because I wasn't, you know, we're not there. We're not on the ground. So it's hard to comment when you're just kind of presented with some footage and a reporter. But it's publicly speaking. It's obviously caused a massive scandal and you know we've seen obviously all the fans camped out outside where Novak was being held Serbian flags, chanting is his name lighting candles all these scenes that we've never expected that we would be seeing and obviously in Serbia in Belgrade. They were obviously having a sort of mass gathering, his family were, you know, have been holding lots of public speaking events they held a press conference today. The thing that I never thought I would actually see Joe and this kind of took it to the next level yesterday was when Nigel Farage rocked up in Serbia. I guess he'd been invited by by the Djokovic traveler or he'd somehow managed to wangle his way in support of Novak and I think we all saw that Andy Murray tweet basically putting Nigel Farage down and calling out the massive irony in the fact that forages suddenly speaking out trying to keep someone in a country whereas normally he's trying to keep people out. Absolutely bizarre. I mean, the whole Novak Djokovic family, you know, voicing speaking up and obviously in support or Djokovic has been has taken it I feel like to the next level. It feels like his dad's calling on absolutely anyone and everyone to get behind Novak and support him. But yeah, it's been it's just been one massive circus and it's been a circus, I think that everyone is forming an opinion of seeing it being played out, whether that's in Australia, whether that's in Serbia. It's just a crazy hectic situation and it's already a hectic start to the season. We've had what 6 tournaments there's been lots of different tennis going on. ATP cup team tennis. But this is kind of trumped it all. And there are lots of talking points from different angles. You can look at this story and obviously Novak Djokovic is someone who is unvaccinated..

"I think he'll be a bit disappointed. The it could the h. Sach there was news that of i'm surprised it wasn't even a tie-break joe. I'm surprised at the set school. Linesmen anything but i'm not surprised at the end result because verbs still actually hasn't beaten a top ten player in assam. What is when he's not a change is going to need to if he will win. A grand slam. That is something that is going to need to change and there is still. It is still one of the best talked about stats. I think it. It grabs the. Men's singles in grandsons is the fact sashes various syllabi to the top ten player at grandson which is baffling but at the same time. When you see when you see his matches you know for example this one against your she sort of you can sort of understand it. And it's something that he's going to need to change. He is getting closer. I mean we gotta give him credit. He did take joke. Rich to fifth sat and the fact that he was able to win that full of one given you felt the momentum was waived jokers. She felt he was just gonna win in four comfortable in full comfortable in a comfortable for victory. That didn't happen so big. I think big credit that but you did just feel that once. He got to that fifth set. That's not really as dave actual coverage territory of right. I've got. I'm out here to make history and i'm not letting anyone get in my way and i do think the i think we see a lot of players. They are kind of pressured by history and the potential to to chase records. But i think certainly in novak djokovic case of vote labor the last man to complete the calendar slammed back nineteen. Sixty-nine was in the crowd as well. But i think the fact that he is aware of that. Obviously and i think he is motivated by thinking paralyzes him and in any sort of way on court and you just think that he is incredibly relaxed. Which i think is very impressive. And i think it takes someone of very strong character strong kind of mental desire to just kind of just continue much time and despite all of this going on about how tantalizingly close. It is with much way now. The fact that. I really didn't think we've really seen it kind of affected. His full yesterday have obviously been dips and he's been losing those. I sat but you wouldn't say he looks like a man who as sort of Restricted by the the nature of potentially what he is about to achieve absolately and we. We haven't been talking about enough light on our podcast. Probably because like there hasn't been any surprise israeli withdrawal kebich matches but is absolutely incredible. Like what he is on the cost of doing you know he's gonna have the mace grand slams of any person Well mayo player. I should say gosh andy. Murray would be having a field day of that faith. Paul like like you said. I mind since for labor nine hundred sixty nine a. It's just you know he's. It's been a long time coming but probably inevitable for the years that he would ever take rotor rafa and i think like overseas big fan but i totally appreciate name. Doing is is so historic for the sport. And i guess the status will well. We'll have to flee shift to him waiting to if you're going to get into the goat debate. But i think a lot of people would already probably give it to him anyway. I mean where do you think this much defeat lease zonta zverev because feel like hib more so than all of the other sort of pretenders bedford. Cisa pass feels like we've been talking about him in the same situation for the longest in terms of being the costs potentially of winning a grand slam playing really really good tennis and seems to have all of the you know the tools particularly with his but sill still able to get there and he's had some pretty. I think devastating five-set losses particularly the the usa with with this loss loss of ac- to to dominate team as well when he did reach the And he did reach the us open final so it still feels like he's got work to do when in terms of that consistency and being able to yes have in the match but being able to come back from it. It still doesn't feel like he's fully able to do that. And i think when you come up against the top ten paige. I think that he's able to win a sad or even or even two sets. He's built for some reason able to to win three sets and that is obviously a reason why he is not able to to agree. Yes move regularly. Kind of get to grandson. Fine was but i think for him. It's sort of interesting. I think in the sense that he i think has the talent is not necessarily denying that. Same time it's just. It's just copy off for him. Add dispatch oversee date. Come up for him. And i'm like alexander's various limbo in terms of i didn't understand why display called caught. Do what he shows that he can do on the tour. A grand slam. Yeah i think he needs to wait for store tie probably a is that do you think is like it's just like it's just a fact of life the or he needs someone to take out about yokich before he wins a grandson. Do you see this being a. He still hasn't really had that that victory has he. I mean the fact. He's beaten a top ten player. Just says everything. I think in terms of he. He's he's going to need that he's going to need confidenct that he's gonna need the confidence from a victory like that to to to to win a slam and i mean casper. Reads gonna be at the top ten next week. I mean it's it's just it's not willing talking about like kind of the the big three. The fact is the top ten. Yeah it's of a spare for sticking point you know you just not gonna win a grand slam all year with without beating the best in the world well thing is joke. Riches sort of really kristie. Now he's the top ten and is out with amendments as roger who are the ones that can beat novak in islam- went wherever they go dominate team. He's out for the rest of the year. We st when when as guys combat what state. They're going to be into building. So i i just see how the current keyhole in the top ten aslam are gonna be able to do the business against any back to win like their first lab. I think they're going to have to capsulize on an incident or an injury old navy having a really really off day to be able to get through him. So i mean medvedev may prove wrong tomorrow. You know he's he's piggies like very good tennis. This any dropped one set on the way to the final unit. He came through very comfortably really against faa. Yesterday was down in that second set five down but but came back saved..

"It's not as though he's played poorly at the us open but he's gotten off to some so slow starts. He's lost his first set in each of his past two matches now ends up being a four set. Victory over caney. She corey of four set. Victory over brooks be to advance to to both the fourth and now subsequently quarterfinal round but you look for novak djokovic He is obviously had so much success in his career at the us open. I believe he seventy nine in twelve at the event entering the quarterfinal stages here in twenty twenty one. He's twelve and ten in his career when he's lost for sets he's lost to first sets here at this tournament. He's managed to win both of those matches but twelve and ten in his career when he's lost for sets at the us. Open when playing guys like daniel medvedev when playing guys like alex. Fear of at this point of their careers. You just can't afford to give them any margin because they are playing at such a high level and look jovic tua. He's lost opening sets and two of his four matches. He's gotten off to slow starts when he's gotten off. The slow starts in new york in the past. It's come back to bite him in the dairy air now. Of course have we seen novak djokovic fully lock in yet. The answer to that question is likely no. We haven't seen his top performance. Certainly after he dropped that i set against jensen broke certainly in that second set against caney she corps to start the sad it feel like he did turn it up a notch to sort of remind his opponents. Don't forget i'm novak freaking joke which i'm top ten in both hold and break percentage. I've won the first three grand slams of this twenty twenty one season but he has got off to some slow starts here in new york this year and in the past when he's gotten off to slow starts it has bitten him before so again. That's the key on if you are a joke of each fan. He's twelve and ten in his career when he's dropped first sets at the. Us open seventy nine and twelve over on his crucial. If you're going to get them you have to get him early and he's been vulnerable early thus far. That's a notable data point and then of course the last node look he's chasing history. I guy since rod flavor twin all four slams in the same season of course novak has won four slams before but never consecutively in the same year He has won four consecutively before but again never in the same urine so you look for him. There's pressure to that. There's the pressure of the fact. That not only would he accomplished that. It would be the twenty first grand slam singles titled his career eclipsing federal eclipsing dog giving him sole possession of first place by that metric. That's a number. he's been chasing seemingly his entire career and it's a number that is in his grasp now to do it at this stage under this circumstance. You can only imagine the pressure one feels the pressure of going to each and every match as though the weight.
