Djokovic sick with virus...start of silent ban?
 
Surely this is a cover story to explain what will most likely be a several months long absence from the tour. I'm just kidding, but it seems to be the general train of thought around here lately.

In all seriousness, I hope it's minor and he's 100% for Dubai in a couple of weeks.

From his website:

Quote:

World no.1 tennis player Novak Djokovic has cancelled his visit to Mokra Gora and Andricgrad in Visegrad due to illness.

“Virus and fatigue have taken their toll. I spoke to Emir and I’m very sorry that I’m not able to make it. I will keep my promise and visit Mokra Gora and Andricgrad when the next opportunity arrises”, Novak said.

Djokovic was supposed to visit Drvengrad (Timber Town) – a traditional village near Mokra Gora today, and then Andricgrad on Friday, the stone city project created by film director and two-time Golden Palm winner Emir Kusturica.

Kusturica wishes to present the six-time Grand Slam champion with the keys to Andricgrad as a gesture of welcome and appreciation. The stone city, also known as Kamengrad, is dedicated to the 1961 Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature, Ivo Andric.

Jelena will fix him up with some chicken noodle and donkey cheese soup, and he'll be good as new.

I hope hes back too. The tour needs their #1 to be healthy and playing at a high level.

Hahaha So now any top player who is sick will be accused of a silent ban? Ridiculous.

Unfortunately, I think that's where things are headed, at least on the internet. I figured I'd beat them at their own game by making a silly post about it.
