Supporters of Novak Djokovic are reeling with excitement after the #1 ATP Champion announced that both & himself have tested negative for COVID-19. Their announcement was promptly confirmed by the Djokovic Media Team, marking a turnaround period of ten days since Novak contracted the virus.

Novak Djokovic contracted COVID-19 after holding a tennis tournament in Serbia, where all social distancing requirements were lifted. Multiple attendees & athletes became infected with the coronavirus, with some immediate receiving attention. Others weren’t lucky enough for prompt medical services & it’s reported that some Serbian Civilians could’ve died from the fallout of this tournament. Matches were seen throughout Belgrade, Zadar, Croatia, and Serbia. Medical experts & investigators determining how many confirmed cases of coronavirus can be traced back to this tournament. Novak Djokovic could find himself being charged & arrested by Croatian Authorities, with a possible prison sentencing.

The Djokovic Media Team indicated that both the #1 ATP Champion & Jelena had survived their onslaught of coronavirus. Arrogance was measured in their remarks, with PR Reps indicating that neither of these individuals had symptoms associated with COVID-19. It was emphasized that both remained Self-Isolated at the Serbian Capital, with permission for their re-entry into society not granted until coronavirus tests kits indicated a negative reading.

Additional Cases & The Fallout

The Exhibition Tennis Series managed by Novak Djokovic had detrimental effects for the Serbian people, extending towards Croatian civilians as well. Reports indicated that four participants in this exhibition series had contracted the novel coronavirus. Named the Adria Tour Exhibition, Novak Djokovic claimed that matches would resume ASAP. Government officials enforced their governing powers & forced Djokovic to cancel all remaining events.
It prompted the #1 ATP Tennis Professional to clarify that as an Anti-Vaccine Advocate, he’ll refuse the vaccine for coronavirus & allow his body to build the necessary cells to defend against this virus. Scientific minds knew that COVID-19 doesn’t work in this manner, that refusing the vaccine will ultimately lead to death.

Reports from European News Sources reveal that Serbia has experienced an influx of COVID-19 Infections since the Adria Tour Exhibition. This entertainment venue alongside many others in Serbia prompted the arrival of confirmed cases. Novak has shown zero empathy towards confirmed statistics.

Novak Djokovic Contracts COVID-19

The highest-rated tennis player worldwide announced earlier in May that he’d contracted COVID-19. This contraction of the virus that’s infected more than ten million worldwide comes after Novak Djokovic refused to abide by recommendations of international health experts. Most analysts in the international tennis community weren’t surprised with the reactions shown by Novak Djokovic, with the #1 ATP Athlete being active support of Anti-Vaccinations.

The professional tennis champion clarified that he’d not get a vaccine for coronavirus, citing concerns for government involvement & possible repercussions down the road. His foolishness has often been disregarded by the community. That disregard won’t be avoided after COVID-19. Novak Djokovic is the direct reason why dozens have contracted the novel coronavirus & possibly jumpstarted another outbreak of coronavirus in Croatia.

Multiple competitors competed in the “Adria Tour Exhibition Tournament”, which was hosted in the Balkan Region of Croatia. Those ATP Competitors included Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric, and Viktor Troicki. It’s expected that multiple other professionals that played in this tournament also contracted COVID-19 but aren’t officially releasing the information.
Amid the controversial stances that Novak Djokovic has, the ATP #1 Athlete still provided a formal statement regarding the Adria Tour Exhibition Tournament controversy. He remarked that immediately upon returning home to Belgrade, both Novak & Jelena Djokovic were tested. After being confirmed with the virus, their children were also tested & announced with a negative status.

The apologies remarked by Novak were minimal, with the champion mentioning his hope towards everyone’s health situation. It’d be remarkable if nobody that contracted the virus didn’t die from immediate or longstanding effects. When questioned on the possibility of being responsible for the deaths of Croatian Citizens or his fellow competitors, Novak showed minimal remorse. These actions will ultimately see Novak lose the respect of his ATP Coworkers.

Stop Now

It should be mentioned that the remaining events slated for the Adria Tour Exhibition Tournament have been cancelled. This decision was made by Novak Djokovic, who believed that by locating the competition to new countries, the virus could be avoided. It was the Association of Tennis Professionals who demanded Novak terminate these venues. Dealings between these two parties weren’t made public, but it’s suspected that severe punishment was threatened to Novak upon possible refusal.

Tennis Athlete Claims Assault Allegations are Falsified

Neca Dorokashvili has falsified claims regarding her former husband. Allegations remark that the wife of Nikoloz Basilashvili, the 27th Highest Ranked ATP Professional, was physically assaulted during their marriage. It prompted Nikoloz to be charged with Domestic Abuse by the Prosecutor’s Office of George. They demanded bail listed at $31,300.00 and reminded Basilashvili that he’d have to attend court by July 16th. It should be mentioned that Neca Dorokashvili charged her husband before Georgian Law Enforcement conducted their formal investigation. After court dates were officially released, a study was prompted.

Nikoloz Basilashvili released a formal statement regarding this matter through Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. The sentiments weren’t remarked directly from Nikoloz, as comments were read through his lawyers. Legal council for this ATP Professional mentioned that these claims are unsubstantiated, falsified, and unfounded based on no evidence. A detailed examination of this couple’s divorce in 2019 reveals that Neca Dorokashvili didn’t receive financial freedom from the courts. Some speculate that these falsified claims are meant to initiate a lawsuit that can garner additional finances.

Lawyers revealed that video evidence released to the Georgian Courts didn’t verify the allegations mattered by Neca Dorokashvili. His legal counsel firmly expects that all charges will be dropped, with court officials having no choice but to abide by formal legislation. Those investigating the evidence released to the Georgian Courts will be disappointed, with Georgia maintaining a system that favours woman over men. This is common worldwide & based on an outdated ideology.

Evidence Favouring Nikoloz Basilashvili

Nikoloz Basilashvili’s Legal Council remarked that those close with this couple during their messages had provided the courts with Texting Transcripts, Video Records, and Photographic Evidence. All information handed over favour Nikoloz Basilashvili over Neca Dorokashvili. Clarifying the history of this relationship through the media, Neca was always considered a swan song for the Georgian people.

It prompted insiders within the Georgian media to purposely create a false image of Nikoloz Basilashvili, which saw the overwhelming majority favour this young woman over one of their most notable athletes. What Nikoloz Basilashvili will do after this investigation is resolved is unknown, with most expecting that he’ll fight for full custody of their child & cut all contact with Neca Dorokashvili off.

Professional sporting venues worldwide have been terminated or postponed during the novel coronavirus. It’s prompted a significant increase in popularity for eSport Competitions, with professional athletes becoming formidable gamers. Sporting associations like the National Basketball Association, Premier League, Major League Soccer, Formula One, and MotoGP have implemented similar measures. These virtual venues are meant to replace real-life counterparts until the novel coronavirus is defeated globally.

There’s a substantial difference between the virtual venues being held by the MLS or NBA compared to Mario Tennis Aces. Major League Soccer holds their virtual matches through the FIFA20 video game on the PS4 Pro. It supports realistic gameplay and graphics that mimic regular competitions. Mario Tennis Aces is a cartoon-styled title meant for children, with characters nowhere resembling the athletes competing. Rackets aren’t realistic, and neither is the gameplay, involving supporters of international tennis shouldn’t take these pairings seriously. It’s more meant to generate funds for charity than to replace real-life tennis. Whoever wins this pairings contest can select a Non-Profit Charity of their choice, with a donation prize of $1 Million.

That’s why I’ve personally decided, alongside my wife, to donate $1.02 Million towards the most affected families across Switzerland. The former champion expressed that their donation is just the beginning, and more will need to come forward. Since Switzerland is filled with numerous millionaires, it’s expected that they’ll recover financially and physically from Covid-19.

Covid-19 is becoming a pandemic across Switzerland, with more than 140+ citizens being killed for the novel coronavirus. John Hopkins University has been reviewing the outbreak in Switzerland, which has more than 10+ thousand confirmed cases. The potential for increased spreading and deaths are exponential in Switzerland. It should be noted that 19+ thousand have died worldwide, which is why nations globally are working towards eliminating this virus.

Additional Donations from Tennis Athletes

Simona Halep from the Women’s Tennis Association confirmed that she’d purchased a large volume of medical supplies for Romania healthcare workers. This announcement was made on March 17th, which assisted the local medical community in protecting themselves before Romania became a pandemic. Additional donations from tennis athletes include Bianca Andreescu, who auctioned her tennis gear during a coronavirus fundraiser. The Canadian athlete donated those funds to Canadian Healthcare Workers. John Isner, Caty McNally and Martina Hingis also made individual donations to fight against Covid-19.

None of the names mentioned above will play professional tennis until June 7th. This follows after both the Association of Tennis Professionals and Women’s Tennis Association confirmed the postponement of both leagues amidst Covid-19. Instead of supporters waiting until May 2020 for a Grand Slam event, they’ll be waiting until September 2020.

Serena Williams Feeling Impacts of Social Distancing

Social distancing measures is causing for millions throughout North America and Europe to begin feeling on edge. This is how Serena Williams, one of the most notable tennis legends, expressed how she’s feeling to social media supporters. Williams was forced into confinement after the American government implemented social distancing measures. Numerous athletes and celebrities have created TikTok Accounts during this period, including the 23-Time Grand Slam Champ. These videos related to Serena’s daughter and the mother’s concern for her safety.

Speaking to supporters through her recently registered TikTok Account, Serena Williams noted that she’d been implementing social distancing measures for two weeks. Considering that this athlete is often travelling to engaging with the world, her anxiety is slowly rising and prompting an on-edge feeling for Williams. Whenever the tennis champion has been involved with the public for groceries or needed supplies, she’ll glare with anger towards individuals that are sneezing or coughing. Serena Williams did mention that afterwards, she feels guilt, shame and then sadness for the other individual. This person could be slightly sick or infected with the deadly virus.

Williams Impacted with Concern for Daughter

These fears grow tenfold for Serena Williams whenever her daughter coughs, sneezes or expresses that she has a sore throat. There’s nothing parents can do during this period for their children, with Covid-19 having no viable solutions. Unlike the common cold or influenza, which can be stopped with antibiotics, there’s nothing available to defend ourselves against the novel coronavirus. Serena Williams believes that this virus won’t affect her loved ones or herself, with the proper measures being implemented to ensure overall safety.

Serena expressed that her fears toward Covid-19 grew when the Indian Wells was cancelled. However, she took it lightly to hear and considered that time off with the family. Once the ATP and WTA Tournaments were cancelled until May, that’s when Serena knew this was a severe global pandemic and that protection measures must be implemented to ensure her families safety. It should be noted that all formal and professional tennis events have been terminated following Covid-19. Williams believes that we’ll all get through this and that things will return to normal by summer if everyone practices social distancing. The chances of this happening are minimal though, with people often ignoring the rules governed throughout the last few weeks.

This follows after Bianca Andreescu confirmed that she hasn’t returned to a 100% healthy playing condition, forcing her to miss out on upcoming events like the Indian Wells. Multiple supports in the tennis community have expressed their disappointment to this announcement, with Bianca being one of the most exciting players of the last two years. It was October 2019 that supports last saw Andreescu compete at the Indian Wells, where she provided severe competition to her opponents. Five months ago saw a substantial change for this woman, with her experiencing a left-knee injury during the WTA Finals in Shenzhen, China.

Bianca Andreescu spoke with reporters through ESPN Tennis. The young Canadian superstar expressed that she’d stepped oddly during a return swing at the WTA Finals. She immediately heard her left-knee crack, with it then being bent inwards. Bianca noted that athletes must listen to their body and understand when it’s reached the maximum limit. This is precisely what Bianca accomplished at that moment, retreating from the court and requesting immediate medical attention. Doctors believe that Andreescu would’ve never played again if she hadn’t implemented this direct strategy.

The Tennis Superstar didn’t anticipate that the road to recovery would be longer than six months. It’s prompting for increasing frustration with this woman, who wants to defend her title and prove that she’s still capable of competing on the professional level. Multiple sporting analysts believe that this left-knee injury will create immeasurable faults in her skillsets, forcing Bianca’s career to be over before it truly began.

The Chances of Returning

The Head Coach for Bianca Andreescu expressed that this young woman doesn’t want to stop. Both Sylvain Bruneau and Bianca Andreescu have been completing her regular training routines throughout the last month. That mean’s they’ve begun re-training this Canadian for her re-emittance into professional tennis. Unfortunately, there isn’t any confirmation when this return will be confirmed. It should be noted that Bianca Andreescu is the most recent competitor to defeat both Venus and Serena Williams, with the Canadian’s performance considered one of the best in tennis history.

More than fifty thousand individuals attended this event; marking is the highest-record attendance record in tennis history. Subsequently, this substantial presence allowed for three million in charitable funds to be acquired.

Roger Federer spoke with reporters after the event concluded, expressing that is was an honour to play for the 50+ thousand fans tonight. Being one of the best tennis matches in history, it’s suitable that Roger and Rafael competed in Cape Town. It’s a destination that holds numerous memories for all professional athletes in the ATP or WTA. Federer noted to reporters that this matchup was more than tennis but a historical moment that’ll be remembered for decades to come. Considering that Federer is ageing and will inevitably have to retire, he mentioned that Rafael should continue this tradition in the following years. When it applies to Roger, this match marked one of his most significant moments and saw him return to the location where his roots began.

Rafael’s Thoughts

Another historical moment for Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer was that this marked the 1st official ATP match that supported African children. The people of Africa saw the benefits this match could bring, which saw the influx of visitors. Fifty thousand viewers are on par with the UFC or NFL. It’ll be decades before another game like this happens again.

Rafael Nadal expressed to reports that the energy of this matchup was incredible and that his feelings couldn’t be described. Nadal mentioned that this was a lifetime experience that was played for an astonishing crowd in the continent’s best stadium.

Coco Gauff Dominates 1st Round of Australian Open

Venus Williams, the older sister to Serena Williams, has been defeated by Coca Gauff for the second consecutive year. When the 2019 Wimbledon took place, the tennis community became shocked when Coca Gauff defeated Venus Williams. This unknown 15-year old dominated over Williams at the grand slam tournament, with the former queen of tennis being dethroned. Venus wasn’t able to reacquire her vengeance against Coca Gauff at the 2020 Australian Open and history repeated itself with Coca taking victory at a 7-6 and 6-3 against Williams. This young star displayed how far her capabilities have come in the last eight months, and this has led to the competition fearing this formidable woman.

The maturity and athletics displayed by Coca Gauff have been remarkable. It’s the exact opposite of Venus Williams, who comes off aggressive and upset when mistakes are made. The 39-year-old athlete is competing in the Australian Open for the 20th time and cannot strike with the same power that made the Williams famous. The emotional way that Venus was playing allowed for Coca Gauff to implement problem-solving techniques and determining which strategies were required to defeat her opponent. Not many athletes at 15 can achieve this mental warfare which competing.

Previous professional tennis players that were this young are known for being erratic. Improvements in skillsets came after defeats against stronger opponents. It should be noted that figuring out the tactics of an opponent mid-match isn’t easy for any professional, let alone for somebody experiencing the Australian Open for the 1st time. Coco Gauff is currently ranked 67th in the Women’s Tennis Association, with that rank slated to increase with her defeat over Venus.

Venus Williams Failing

Venus Williams has struggled to compete at professional levels in her older age. It’s been two years since she last reached the Australian Open final in Melbourne. Venus is months away from turning forty, with sports analysts determining that age is beginning to factor into her skillsets. Movements have become slow, with her infamous backhand side becoming weak. Williams removed herself from the Brisbane Open after experiencing multiple setbacks. The mental anxiety facing Venus Williams in 2020 in severe, which leads little room for improvement. It’s shocking to see an athlete known for their calm behaviour turn into an aggressive, uncentred athlete.

When it applies to Coca Gauff, she competes next against the Czech Republic’s Barbora Strycova. Defeating this competitor would move Gauff up into the third round against Naomi Osaka, the defending champion for the WTA. Winning the Australian Open championship would provide this young athlete with respect, which she deserves amongst fellow WTA opponents.
