    Novak is a symbol of freedom and humility off court, and greatness on court. Australia should be ashamed of the way they persecuted the greatest tennis player, the greatest athlete and one of the greatest human beings on earth.

      @Jovan Djordjevic I am not talking about politics I am talking about rules that applied to every other player . So Novak got himself in trouble by going there , they would do same to Nadal Federer Or anyone .

      @Nikita Kryvonos The way Australian government treated Australians during covid is way way worse than how they did our man Novak. The idea that he was a danger to anyone in a 1v1 match is idiotic. Everyone can keep plenty of distance from each other... but it was never about safety, purely political power move in order to further infringe on the rights of ordinary Australians.

      What are you talking about ? They had a rule and Novak chose not to follow it . If he didn’t want to get vaccinated it’s ok his choice but why go to a tournament where every other player had to get vaccine in order to participate? If you’re such a “hero” choose not to get vaccine and don’t play the tournament . So they sent him home and it was a correct thing to do .

    Such mad respect for this man. His ambition, determination, discipline, focus, and competitive zeal make him a Great Champion. His honor, humility, personal dignity, and courageous defense of truth and freedom under withering global assault, make him a Proven Leader. 👏☝

      @gunnerman so why it is arrogant to assess him based on his on court action, and it is fine to assess based on his answer in public media? And anyone know ppl behaves differently when speaking to media vs speaking privately. It is a simple logic

    • gunnerman
      gunnerman Month ago +2

      @Mike Chan my quarrel is with your initial statement. I don't care whether he is humble or you don't like his on court actions. As long as he is true to himself and remains genuine, he remains a greater man his peers

      He can stand up for what he believes without trying to participate in a tournament where every other player had to get vaccinated . This is called feeling like he is above others!!!

      @Les P i don't think so. It was a decision taken by Australian and and its also applicable to TAO. They stood for that. It was good nothing happened to Novack. If he falls sick there during the course of his play, if he were allowed to play with taking the jab, then also the world would have blamed the government and the Australian open authorities.

    Novak, you touch all our hearts with your honesty, modesty, humility and common touch. You have the heart of a lion and an irresistible thirst to win. Many congratulations on this magnificent triumph, but we know that more GS titles will be coming your way as you're the best tennis player that this world has ever seen. You may not say it, let alone think it, but the whole world over knows it. You're the greatest of the great, and the People's Champion. Love from England.

He rises above all others into a realm of extraordinary that has no rivals. People like Novak come around once every century or so. Novak is that man of our generation. He's an amazing human being who happens to be the greatest tennis player of all time. What kind of lion is in this man's heart? I'm utterly amazed! Congrats to Novak. Well done and well deserved!

    Even though the final wasn't as exciting as I had hoped, I've loved this entire tournament simply because of how much LOVE AND SUPPORT Novak has been given. Not just from his Serbian fans, but from the entire audience in general. His unfair treatment across 2022 by world governments has resulted in a HUGE number of fans rallying behind him, and he's finally getting the love and support he's rightfully deserved for years now. Just goes to show that it's rare when the will of the government is in line with the will of The People.

      @Nikita Kryvonos You don’t get more genuine than standing your ground when heavily criticised and judged by the sheeple mob. Not everybody would or could do that.

      Thankfully, you don’t have to date him, just enjoy the Tennis.

    • Nikita Kryvonos

      @Davey James Well he tried to play at a tournament where everyone had to get vaccinated , and it’s ok to choose not to get a vaccine but then be a man and how his fans call him a “hero” and stay home and not try to sneak into the tournament . But yeah if people get inspired by him and do something productive is all good . Just not a source of inspiration for me , more like something to cringe / laugh about. I like truth and appreciate genuine stuff .

    • Davey James
      Davey James 17 days ago

      @Nikita Kryvonos I don’t think he has ever suggested rules be changed just for him, that’s just plain silly.. but whatever, a lot of fans don’t like Novak and that may have affected some of his behaviour. I personally think much of the criticism is unfair so let’s Agree to disagree👍

    • Nikita Kryvonos
      Nikita Kryvonos 17 days ago

      @Davey James I am not vaccine purist . It’s just a principle , I don’t like when people act like they are better then other people just because they can play sport better then you. It’s not just vaccines : at the us open my friends sister worked and she asked Novak for a players pass at the gate and he cursed her out and threw a tantrum. She was just doing her job but it looks like he has this attitude that he is so great that every one should just drop all the rules for him. Same thing on court of he is getting pressed and clearly beaten he retires . His game might inspire some but his attitude is not for me to call a champion sorry.

    • Davey James
      Davey James 17 days ago

      @Nikita Kryvonos As I said, it’s pretty clear you have deep dislike for him, you’re allowed.. but so are ppl who consider him inspirational. You may be a purist for the vaccine rules but the whole thing was a load of nonsense and many agreed with Novak too.
      I also was a huge fan of Agassi and am still Roger’s biggest fan btw.

    For an athlete who is so amazing and so talented, he is so humble and such an awesome person. That’s one of the many things that I love about the big 3. They’re great athletes, but as good as they are and as legendary as they are they’re so modest, decent and they’re never boastful or obnoxious. If only all pro athletes were more like Novak, Roger, and Rafa.

    Come on Novak just admit you’re the GOAT. It’s undeniable at this point. Holds all the records and could see him winning 3-4 more at least. If you take the 2 slams he missed as a result of Covid and the Karen US open incident into account he would have been well clear by now. Greatest athlete I’ve seen (along with Messi) in my life.

      Novak deserved to be disqualified, also, she might be a Karen or not, she was directly hit in the throat with a ball that has a speed of 50km/h, + in the end, the main issue wasn't that much the hit but the dangerous behavior of hitting someone with a ball, although it wasn't on purpose etc but he deserved it, no question about it.
      And i think Tsitsipas for example should have deserved to be Disqualified against Kyrgios in Wimbledon 2022 for sure too.

      @Stein Anderson Did federer win that final? He got more points but also got too many unforced errors. So he was less efficient than Novak in that final. You are entitled to your opinion, but numbers and facts don't lie. Novak is destroying tennis records and he will keep doing it for at least 2 or 3 years bc his game hasn't regressed.

      @kika A Novak makes top players look ordinary, when he is at his best. Same with Rafa. The big 3 have dominated for so long. You can't ignore Novak's positive H2H v Roger and Rafa, particularly post 2011, when he had his celiac disease treated. You can't ignore his record wins v top 10 players (unmatched). Federer was already established and had experience on his side as an advantage v the still developing Rafa and more so with Novak (who started 2 years later than Rafa). You could argue, that if they all started at the same time, that Roger would have won less slams early on.

    • gelvisblue
      gelvisblue Month ago

      @kika A Hard to compare the big three's prime and peak. They are such unique players and can't be compared to any other players in history. All 3 have been crazy good throughout their careers and have peaked and dipped many times throughout their careers. Therefore, it's hard to quantify prime for any of them. Rafa and Novak over the last 3 years have played as well as they ever have. Roger was still winning slams late on in his career. They have all had injuries, personal issues, celiac disease etc that has affected their form at different times in their careers.
      We all have our favourites and opinions and it is hard to properly say who is the greatest.
      Even though most players and pundits, stats etc lean towards Novak as the GOAT, it is only slightly.
      What we can say, is that the big three's legacy will never be matched. They have all helped each other to drive on to be the best. On one hand they've each prevented the others from winning many more slams. But, on the flip-side they've developed each other's desire to keep improving and to beat each other. TBF I would prefer to put all the GOAT arguments aside, as it is disrespectful to all of them, to try and dissect all their careers. Roger changed the game and is poetic to watch, Rafa is such a warrior and has incredible power, Novak has incredible adaptability from defense to attack and a terminator mind set. They are 3 tennis gods who deserve equal respect and we are so lucky to have witnessed the greatest 3 way rivalry in tennis. Novak, King of the hard courts, Rafa, King of Clay, Roger, King of grass.
      For all our disagreeing, I like your passion for your player. It keeps the tennis world interesting.

    • gelvisblue
      gelvisblue Month ago +1

      @c56gtd43j0 Novak's achievements still outweigh Nadal's though. This has been confirmed so much in the MSM by experts over the last few years. It was only when Rafa reached 22 slams that they then considered him as the GOAT over Novak. Now Novak has 22, the GOAT title reverts back.
      Re the Olympics, it is nice to win, but not held in the same regard as the ATP tournaments. Most sports don't rank the Olympics that high compared to the other, regular tournaments in their sports, aside from athletics, swimming and a handful of minor sports. If you look at the top 20 all-time tennis greats, 90% of them participated, but didn't give it their all. The Olympics is non ranking, no points, best of 3 sets. Equivalent to an ATP 250 tournament at best. Olympics holds little weight in tennis compared to other Olympic sports. Look at all the greats who haven't won/not been bothered with it. Look at the winners of it: Miloslav Mecir (no slams won) in 1988, Marc Rosset (no slams won) in 92, Yevgeny Kafelnikov (2 slams won) in 2000, Nicolas Massu (no slams won) in 2004.
      Look, Roger and Connors still hold a number of records too.
