Novak Djokovic has revealed he is an anti-vaxxer and that it could get in the way of his return to competitive tennis once the sport resumes from the coronavirus pandemic.

The men's tennis world number one admitted his opposition to vaccinations, saying "I wouldn't want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine" and that if it were made compulsory he would have to make a decision.

Prominent figures in tennis have said all players should be vaccinated when competition starts again, provided a vaccination against COVID-19 is produced by then.

But speaking during a live Facebook discussion with several fellow Serbian athletes, Djokovic said: "Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn't want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel.

"But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision.

"I have my own thoughts about the matter and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don't know.

"Hypothetically, if the season was to resume in July, August or September, though unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement straight after we are out of strict quarantine and there is no vaccine yet."

Amelie Mauresmo, herself a former women's tennis world number one, has said the sport should not resume unless players can be vaccinated, although scientists have repeatedly said that could be a year away and may not ever materialise.

Dual grand slam winner Mauresmo last month tweeted: "International circuit players of all nationalities plus management, spectators and people from the four corners of the world who bring these events to life. No vaccine = no tennis."

The COVID-19 outbreak has seen tennis governing bodies suspend all tournaments until 13 July at the earliest.

Wimbledon has been cancelled for the first time since the Second World War, and the French Open has been put back four months until late September.

The main agencies which work to promote vaccination say they have been highly successful at saving lives in the last few years.

Much of the scepticism around vaccination stems from a discredited study by British surgeon Andrew Wakefield that erroneously linked autism to the MMR vaccine. That study has been retracted, and nine years ago Wakefield was struck off the UK medical registry.

Disappointing to hear but not totally surprising. there seems to be a link between vegans and anti-vaxxers.

Unfortunate for Fed, but probably true.

on the plus side, the virus has killed off any tiny hope (and it was tiny anyway) of big Mamma catching Court's record. Cool

So, let’s look at this thread.

Opening poster created a thread, but didn’t provide the detail or a link.
I then copied and pasted the story from a website and added it to the thread for the benefit of others.

I added a further one line post that was clearly a throwaway line.

You subsequently read the thread and make a contribution, quoting a further post that I had made regarding the possibility that we may not see Federer play competitively again due to the COVID crisis.

Forty five minutes later, you make a further post, this time quoting my throwaway line.
For some reason, it has upset you.

Quite why it caused you such distress, I really wouldn’t like to guess.
But I suspect it isn’t simply the throwaway line.

We then engage in a p1ssing contest.

Talking about 'no vax' in those terms is nonsense
It's not about what a vaccine grants or makes you sick, it's about the right freedom to choose , expecially something implanted in your own body
If you pretend to set a mandatory vaccine , so a generic healt purpose, people can force you to NOT use your car for example, which undoubtedly cause many breath damages
Report EatMySalada April 21, 2020 2:35 PM BST
I had a position before with no vax totally wrong and 'mad' people
Now i'm just thinking about a freedom to will and decide, that's called democracy .
It wouldnt be a problem if big pharma werent profitable , that's reasonably impossible however
A vaccine cannot be the 'perfect' solution, but the cheapest solution for them. So it s implicit that they have to rely in the best molecular product for making money regardless some other effects that are unknown
For that reason, i would say everybody could be in position to say the opposite but proofless as modern medicine it's great on molecular biology but lacks great on the view of the entire body system (really complicated honestly)

On politics or chit chat somewhere he said the other day that it's all bollocks, vaccines are an evil plot and viruses can only be contracted through injection anyway. Upon my friendly suggestion to go lick a few toilet seats (see corona challenge) to test his hypothesis, the terribly thin-skinned wondersobright immediately blocked me.

In before you are too lazy to read a wee bit but do want to share your opinion on this, staged, event




" Mr. Cowboy Hat is in fact Ammon Bundy. I googled just to make sure I remembered who that was and sure enough, he was behind the whole thing. The moms at the playground was a staged protest. Here's the article. Here is an excerpt: "

Walton Brady then asks one of the officers to arrest her, and the officer obliges. “Someone call the Idaho Freedom Foundation right now and get them on the phone!” Walton Brady screams, referring to the right-wing organization funded in part by a dark money group linked to the billionaire Koch brothers.



The 'He arrested me after I asked him to arrest me'-mom previously had her kid denied daycare or education because she refuses basic vaccinations

Her in-law was quick to point that out on facebook and that she's generally an idiot, this time using kids as protest signs because she's prone to being astroturfed, but I think maybe that was removed per doxxing rules
