Djokovic Calls Wimbledon Ban on Russian Players “Crazy”

“When politics interferes with sport, the result is not good.”

Former world number one tennis star Novak Djokovic has described Wimbledon’s ban on Russian and Belarusian players as “crazy,” saying politics shouldn’t interfere in sport.

As we highlighted yesterday, Wimbledon organizers confirmed that players from both countries would be barred from competing in the tournament even if they have vocally opposed the war in Ukraine.

Players had initially been expected to be given an opportunity to perform an act of ideological subservience by denouncing Russia in order to be able to take part, but now even this won’t be enough.

Serbian star Djokovic, who was deported earlier this year after attempting to take part in the Australian Open without having been vaccinated, condemned the announcement.

“I will always condemn war, I will never support war being myself a child of war,” he asserted, adding, “I know how much emotional trauma it leaves. In Serbia we all know what happened in 1999. In the Balkans we have had many wars in recent history.”

“However, I cannot support the decision of Wimbledon, I think it is crazy. When politics interferes with sport, the result is not good,” said Djokovic.

Wimbledon organizers All England Lawn Tennis Club attempted to justify the ban by saying it would be “unacceptable for the Russian regime to derive any benefits from the involvement of Russian or Belarusian players with The Championships.”

However, both the ATP and the WTA slammed Wimbledon over the decision.

Men’s tour organizers ATP said it was “unfair and has the potential to set a damaging precedent for the game.”

The WTA said the ban was “neither fair nor justified.”

The ban opens up future possibilities for players to be banned from tournaments if they don’t express political support for whatever ‘current thing’ cause is popular at the time.

As we previously highlighted, Russian chess prodigy Sergey Karjakin was banned from competing internationally by the International Chess Federation (FIDE) because he expressed the wrong political opinion about Ukraine.

Ukrainian sisters and chess grandmasters Maria & Anna Muzychuk were then banned by the Lviv Chess Federation for refusing to sign an open letter demanding that all Russians and Belarusians be banned.

‘Sexism’ Row Erupts Over Not Enough Parasitic Worms Being Named After Female Scientists

Clown world strikes again.

Published

A sexism row has erupted over concerns that not enough newly discovered species of parasitic worms are named after women.

Yes, really.

Concerns are being raised as to whether “gender bias” has played a role in naming the creatures after a team of scientists led by parasitologist Robert Poulin “scoured studies in eight journals published between 2000 and 2020,” reports Sky News.

“Of the 596 species named after eminent scientists, only 111, or 19%, recognised women, according to the experts from New Zealand’s University of Otago.”

According to the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, “We found a consistent gender bias among species named after eminent scientists, with male scientists being immortalised disproportionately more frequently than female scientists.”

Of course, the reason more of the creatures were named after male scientists is that men are more likely to choose to study science subjects in the first place.

Therefore there are more male scientists to choose from when deciding who to name species of creatures after.

It has absolutely nothing to do with “sexism,” just as more men working on oil rigs or on construction sites is due to natural biological differences between men and women and the choices they make.

The fact that any of this is even being treated seriously is another damning indictment of how mainstream science has been warped by intersectional nonsense and the culture wars.

Men and women are different. They have different primary character traits and as a result are more likely to want to pursue different careers and life choices.

That’s not “sexist,” it’s scientific biological reality. Deal with it.

Rafael Nadal Slams Wimbledon Banning Russian Players

“It’s not their fault what’s happening.”

Tennis legend Rafael Nadal has slammed Wimbledon’s decision to ban all Russian and Belarusian players from their tournament, asserting, “It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment.”

Last month, Wimbledon organizers confirmed that players from both countries would be barred from competing in the tournament even if they have vocally opposed the war in Ukraine.

The announcement means that top players like Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev will not be able to compete at SW19 this year.

Players had initially been expected to be given an opportunity to perform an act of ideological subservience by denouncing Russia in order to be able to take part, but now even this won’t be enough.

All-time grand slam wins leader Rafael Nadal criticized the ban as being “very unfair” on his “Russian mates” and colleagues.

“Poor them…It’s not their fault what’s happening in this moment,” Nadal told reporters.

“In that sense, I feel very sorry for them,” he added, asserting that the organizers had taken a “drastic” position.

Nadal said blocking Russians and Belarusians from competing would also mess up the tennis ranking system.

“The 2,000 points, whenever we go to the grand slams, they are really important and we have to go to those tournaments. So we will have to see the measures that we take,” he said.

Nadal joins fellow generational talent Novak Djokovic in denouncing the measure, with the Serb calling the decision to ban Russians and Belarusians “crazy”.

As we highlighted last month, Ukrainian tennis star Elina Svitolina demanded that Russian and Belarusian players be subjected to ideological purity tests before they are allowed to compete in international tournaments.
