He basically says people should have a choice whether to inoculate or not. That's not a "secret" and that has nothing to do with his trustworthiness.
Yeah, he's trying to make the point that nobody has the right to know that kind of personal information about others, no matter what. Like if I went into a restaurant and demanded to know the HIV status of the waiter.

Final would seal YE #1, right?

Yeah nice draw. Not in either of the two extremes. And he'll probably be happier seeing Tsitsipas in his half. I feel like for the time being at least that both Djoker and Mad Lad would much rather draw him than Zverev lol...

Don't you dare GOAT next week you toilet philosopher. :laughing:

Unless Med takes WC to Stockholm or play Challenger after ATP Finals.If not even he win the title beating Novak at the final he wouls at best equal Novak if he wins ATP finals without a loss and Novak didn't win a match but Novak will still be number 1 because he finished higher last year

tie breaker tends to be higher points from big tournaments.

anyway, nole is ye # 1 already after paris if:

1. he reaches the final
2. med not reaches the final
3. he reaches SF and med does not take the title

He already won Davis Cup and ATP cup for Serbia, need to stop doing such stupid scheduling.
At this point, since there is no way we are winning a second singles point against any country (every Monday/Tuesday for the past few weeks all I read is how the mugs lost in first rounds), my guess is that this is actually him practicing for doubles in upcoming DC. :laughing:

I thought top ten players were not allowed to play Challengers or ITF/Futures? I've personally never seen this. The highest I've seen this year (for instance) is Evans (ranked #25 who played a challenger on grass).
I always wondered about this. In 2013, 2016 and 2019 Djokovic finished #2 for hardly 200-300 points. Let's say #1 only has 100 points more after ATP Finals. Can #2 play a challenger 125 and still get YE-#1?

And yes, excellent draw for Djokovic. The kind of draw he'd have dreamed to have in USO. He avoids the Zverev-Medvedev double in SF and F, which could be a crucial factor in the future Majors for this trio. Though he has Basilashvili, Opelka and Hurkacz in his half, I think they're more dangerous than Monfils, Rublev and Tsitsipas at this point.

I think you need some sort of dispensation?

I think Wawrinka played a Geneva challenger a time or two for what appeared to be the lulz

The only Top 10 player since 2000 to play chalenger was Rainer Schuettler at Braunschweing 2003.He was number 8.

How are players separated when they have the same amount of points?
Ties. When two or more players have the same total number of points, ties shall be broken as follows:

1) The most total points combined from the Grand Slams, ATP Masters 1000 mandatory tournaments and Nitto ATP Finals main draws, and if still tied, then,
2) The fewest events played, counting all missed Grand Slams, ATP Masters 1000 tournaments and Nitto ATP Finals they could have played - as if played, and if still tied, then,
3) The highest number of points from one single tournament, then, if needed, the second highest, and so on.

Won't be seeing Djokovic today, Monfils has withdrawn.

As it stands, Fritz/Norrie and Hurkacz/Duckworth stand in between him and the unprecedented number 7...
This is an easy route to the final all things considered. No pesky opponents like RBA this time. His biggest threats Zverev and Med lad are in opposite half and Tsitsipas has withdrawn. There is no Federer or Thiem, no Nishikori. No player that loves indoor hard.

Fritz is good. He has improved the movement aspect very much in the last 1 year but hey we know his backhand is very attackable.

No idea about Hurkacz on indoors court. He doesn't have x factor.
