Nick Kyrgios doesn't condone Novak's treatment?

Nick Kyrgios on Twitter: "Look I definitely believe in taking action, I got vaccinated because of others and for my mums health, but how we are handling Novak’s situation is bad, really bad. Like these memes, headlines, this is one of our great champions but at the end of the day, he is human. Do better."

Hoping we can keep this discussion civil...but this is TTW

Im not Djokovic's fan by any stretch. Infact it helps Nadals slim chances if the guy isnt playing in AO.

But this is just ridiculous. Let the guy play. Is it the worst thing in the world that hes unvaccinated?

Im pretty sure this wouldnt have happened to Federer had it been him.

Its scandalous the way Djokovic is treated at times IMO. ( Yes he brings certain things upon himself too, but thats a different matter ).

You're right!

“Yes, I’m vaccinated,” Federer told Switzerland’s Leman Bleu television. “I got the Pfizer.

“I am happy to have been able to do it with all the trips I take.

“Even if I’m staying in Switzerland, I think there are advantages. Above all, I did it for others because I don’t want to give it to anyone else, even if I still remain very careful.

“We’re very careful with the family and with our friends.”

Likewise, Joe Blow would have been thrown back into his plane and not even kept at a hotel.

Federer is vaccinated so it wouldn't happen to him.

Also, Federer was once stopped by a security personnel in Australian Open and was asked to show his ID / credentials before he could enter a certain venue. There was a video about this a long long time ago.

I like Nick for his straight talk. He criticizes djokovic when he does silly things like those adria tour and love gathering attention,

But he straight talks and supported better treatment for djokovic

Kyrgios has proven time after time that you have to take everything he says with a grain of salt. The man is honestly one of the last people the public should be listening to. His behaviour has always been completely inconsistent with his words, he was always preaching to do good deeds but behaving like a complete jerk outside of the internet (while doing some charity stuff here and there to improve his public image). Now he's gone even further to even be wildly inconsistent within his own words. I'm not going to pick apart everything that he says, but he's basically going against everything he's said about vaccines and about Djokovic in the past.

Nick's take is pretty much the same as mine. I don't think it's a contradiction to be vaccinated and for vaccination but also disapprove how the Australian government have handle the situation. Life is full of nuances and gray areas
 
I think all Nick is saying is that regardless of what needs to be done, the way the respective authorities have handled the situation (bungling it in a way that puts Novak at the center of a fiasco) and failed to enforce and communicate policy consistently, and the way people are making fun of Novak or taking joy in his situation, is not on.

He probably doesn't want to wade into the policy debate itself.

Djokovic should vaccinate himself at once for his own kids, the good of his family and relatives and of his fans and his nations. His stand has been highly harmful and even deadly.

This doesn't make the treatment and politics around him right. I actually feel for him as a human.

I have no doubt that he feels taken for a ride taken for a ride and absolutely humiliated. Ridiculing his professional need for a high standard training environment, diet and so forth is just cheap.

Just a pity, because he can still give it to other people just like unvaccinated people can.
