Zverev wasn't dancing at that party, right, just playing in a basketball tournament ~ Seems innocent enough!!

Boris hit him with that "fulfill his potential and win a grand slam" LOL!!

No one wants to be scolded now, plus he and the German team tested negative and learned their lesson. What is Nick doing with his personal time off??

Romanian-French tennis player Sever Dron believes Novak’s flaw of getting infected with coronavirus is as heavy as Maria Sharapova failing the doping test in the year 2016. She was tested positive for meldonium, a substance banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), and that incident toppled her tennis career upside down.

Also, he terms it to be one of the darkest episodes of Djokovic’s tennis career, which equivalent to committing a crime.

“Unfortunately, I think that Djokovic will remain in the history of tennis through this unfortunate action (organizing Adria Tour) as well and it will weigh even more than his Grand Slam titles and his status of the world’s best player,” former professional tennis player Sever Dron told DigiSport.

“How much is this thing worth at a planetary level? Same as Sharapova, who, after she admitted that she had been doping, we started to question her titles. It’s a shame for the kids who start to bring down their heroes from that pedestal they put them on,” he added.

Please!!!

Bad judgement, but their quarantine was over and he thought he was doing something good for the community. Not his fault the virus isn't done with us yet!! Plus, I don't even know who Sever Dron is; that's his opinion, and this doesn't rise to Sharapova's doping of 12 years, knowing it was gonna be, then became a banned substance!!

NOPE!!

I won't allow them to take down The Joker over this pandemic ~ No f***ing way!!!!

But, I was talking about Alexander's part ~ He wasn't at that party; or it hasn't been reported yet. Nick was just taking a swipe at him, probably out of jealousy, that's why Boris defended him!!

Hello, still ok over here.
I am wondering if we will see tennis in 2020... maybe without public (and that happened sometimes in the past in some events with poor attendance)

Corona-wise, we are at a critical point, but Belgian government is acting responsible.
Today was the first day that we saw a very small increase of new infections: 1%. Over the last 7 days, the average was 86 cases/day, but in the last week of June it was only 85 cases/day. Scientists warned that biostatistical models (that were very accurate since mid-March) show July 18 as the critical date for a potential 2nd wave. So within hours it was decided that wearing a mouthmask in shops, muses, libraries, cinema... is mandatory from Saturday onwards.

No political games here: science makes the decision...

To put things in context; Florida has twice as many people when compared to Belgium, so 172 cases per day in a Florida should have triggered the same measures to avoid a wave... Florida has 50 times more cases per day (and increasing) and is still not acting properly.

When will the Republicans realise that you cannot win against a virus with political games.

It's a shame, Grav!!

We thought they would've learned the lessons from NY & NJ, but they are still acting irresponsibly :( It'll halt when their close family member succumbs / suffers / dies and they have to bury them, without funeral, and only ten at gravesite memorial ...
