Is anyone watching the U.S. Open?

Djokovic is on the brink of history on multiple fonts today. If he wins the Final today, he will not only pass Fed and Nadal(with whom he is tied) to become the all-time men's grand slam leader(with 21, third overall in the open era behind Serena and Graf), but he will become the first man since Rod Laver in 1969, and the first player of either gender since Graf in 1988, to complete the calendar year grand slam.

I would've preferred for Nadal to be the one to pass Fed, but a calendar year grand slam is very impressive, no doubt about it.

Plot twist, NoVaxx got his ass handed to him, thankfully.

He lost. Straight sets. Pretty shocking.

Good.

In the meantime, Australia's Dylan Alcott, who plays Quad Singles, just became the second man after Rod Laver to win the Grand Slam twice, in addition to the Gold he won at the Paralympics a week ago.

Novax just got a fucking exemption to play in the Australian Open. An absolute disgrace. He will get mercilessly booed.

What an idiot. What is his reasoning for not getting the vaccine? It's just a shot. Just get the fucking shot. Baffling.

Glad the Australian government is standing up and boldly saying, "yes, if you are rich and famous, you're above the law."

We're all furious. He hasn't revealed his reasoning, but he never got the vaccine in the first place, right? And I don't think he'd had an exemption before that. I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, because I want to trust in the two "independent" panels that granted him the exemption and think that they wouldn't put Novax above everyone else. He's never disclosed his vaxx status, which means he is very, very likely unvaccinated, and he's been publicly anti-vaxx and undermined health protocols, so fuck him.

If you had a legitimate medical reason for not being vaccinated, surely you would just publicly state that. Some are saying because he got COVID in July, he might have been advised he doesn't have to get the vaccine within six months. But if that was the reason, just say it. Don't fucking preach that people should "feel love & respect towards all beings on this wonderful planet". Go fuck yourself cunt. Let's see how well you go when you realise everyone hates you and no one even wants to be near you.

The thought of him having the most Men's Grand Slam titles makes my skin crawl. Sure wish Roger Federer had more Tom Brady in him.

Not yet. They're appealing. It's been absolute mess.

His team are taking it to Federal Court, saying the deportation is unlawful.

Meanwhile... a very important element of the story. He's being detained in the same building that the Australian government has kept refugees locked up for nearly a decade.
