    Federer donates 1 million CHF to Swiss families suffering from coronavirus

    I didn't really look into detail, but are you sure 50 millions per year are going to his foundation? I had the feeling it was more in the range of 5 millions per year. If I am not mistaken most of the money that flows to his foundation comes from the exhibition matches not from his personal bank...

    Federer donates 1 million CHF to Swiss families suffering from coronavirus

    There are plenty of poor people in Switzerland. Everything is goddam expensive in this country, you don't even realize if you have never been in this country. Usually divorced people are hit very hard financially, especially single moms with children. Just some exemple of high costs (1CHF is...

    Federer donates 1 million CHF to Swiss families suffering from coronavirus

    Not quite, he gave away 0.1% of his net worth, hehe.. To put things into perspective if you were a millionnaire, it would be like giving away 1'000, peanuts basically

    Olympics officially postponed

    Just a matter of time before it gets postponed. British in general seem a bit slow to realize the full extent of the problem with the Covid-19

    Virologist calls the quarantine strategy 19th century quackery, calls for mass testing and return to normal life

    Dude, I think this conversation is going nowhere. The only thing I am saying is that it is dumb to compare number of deaths at the beginning of a pandemic to numbers from past flu-seasons. Hospitals in Italy cannot deal with the huge number of patients that need intensive care. They need to do...

    Virologist calls the quarantine strategy 19th century quackery, calls for mass testing and return to normal life

    Data from 1st of March onwards, once Italy had more than 1000 cases (y-axis is the total number of cases): End of discussion

    Virologist calls the quarantine strategy 19th century quackery, calls for mass testing and return to normal life

    No you can't compare numbers to past pandemics, because we are at the very beginning of the pandemic. It is like saying in 1940 "hey this second world war is not so bad, there were many more deaths during the 14-18 war and other past wars". Treatment doesn't exist. The most severe cases get...

    Virologist calls the quarantine strategy 19th century quackery, calls for mass testing and return to normal life

    Dude you are way off the mark and completely miss the point. I am not talking about quarantaine and its effects. You are the one who was minimizing the number of deaths and comparing it to 2017-2018. The only thing I am saying is that it is incorrect to make any comparison of dead numbers from...

    Virologist calls the quarantine strategy 19th century quackery, calls for mass testing and return to normal life

    Obviously you didn't read or understand my message. We are at the very beginning of epidemic. Numbers are rising fast, so it is pointless at the moment to compare the current numbers with the numbers from 2017-18. We can do this comparison once the epidemic is over.

    Virologist calls the quarantine strategy 19th century quackery, calls for mass testing and return to normal life

    Just watched the video. I think the doctor is downplaying the numbers of dead. He is mentioning only 148 dead people in France, but this is just the beginning of the epidemic. As I am typing this now there are a total of 562 dead people with an additional daily deaths of 112 in France. Yes, in...

    Just to reiterate: NO ONE should be Playing tennis right now

    Another difference: you need to eat and therefore buy food at the grocery store in order to survive. Playing tennis is just a hobby and not even remotely relevant for your own survival.

    Poll: Is rescheduling RG the right step?

    Wimbledon and Olympics will not happen anyway. Olympics will likely be shifted to 2021 (similar to Euro football cup). High chances USO gets cancelled too.

    Roland Garros moved to September - not a drill

    Exactly, a lot of people seem to be quite ignorant regarding the current situation... I live in Switzerland and we get plenty of news of what is happening in our neighboring countries, Italy and France. Also in Switzerland the situation is quite bad, all shops (except grocery stores/pharmacies)...

    French Open cancelled?

    Anyway I have hard time seeing Roland Garros taking place. Initially, I was thinking they could hold the tournament without any spectators. But even without spectators it will not be possible considering the fact that tennis players come all over the world and there are already so many travel...
