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.

Swiss Captain Rejects World Cup Virtue Signaling

Says team is not in Qatar to “hand out lessons to anyone.”

Swiss football captain Granit Xhaka has rejected the deluge of virtue signaling taking place at the World Cup, asserting his team isn’t in Qatar to “hand out lessons to anyone.”

Since it began, the tournament has been beset by controversy over teams attempting to express their support for the LGBT movement in a country that still imprisons homosexuals.

FIFA has banned players from wearing ‘OneLove’ armbands, something the German team protested this week by placing their hands over their mouths during a pre-game photo.

Supporters attending games have also been told they can’t wear rainbow hats or carry LGBT flags into stadiums, although this policy has now been reversed.

Despite many teams jumping on the virtue signaling bandwagon (England have once again begun to ‘take a knee’), Switzerland captain Granit Xhaka says he isn’t interested.

“I don’t think we need to do anything as the Swiss team,” said Xhaka. “We need to respect the rules and concentrate on our football, that’s all I intend to do. We’re here to play football and not hand out lessons to anyone.”

Meanwhile, Wales national coach Rob Page chided Germany, who lost 2-1 to Japan after their hands over mouths PR stunt, suggesting it made them lose focus on the match itself.

“I want my players to focus fully on playing games of football and winning games. I am sure Germany now, in hindsight, will probably have the same message,” said Page.

As we discuss in the video below, while you can be arrested for promoting LGBT in Qatar, in the west, you can be arrested for disrespecting LGBT.

We’re so much better!
