Naive or just stupid: Djokovic rolls with Bulldozer on the hopes of other sports

One thing first: of Course, a Coronavirus infection of the question in the face of any gloating. And it is to be hoped that all who have become infected in the environment of the Novak Djokovic organized the Adriatic Tour with COVID-19, to remain harmless, and soon completely healthy.

A question may be permitted: How naive and stupid can you be, really? Since the number one of the Tennis world to a nice, small tournament series invites with locations in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia-Herzegovina. While the other regular tournaments on the ATP Tour are still in the forced break, want Djokovic to gather with some fellow professionals match practice, the Form of rebuilding, in addition, donations to adopt - and just have a good time.

Djokovic offers Paradise for corona virus

And he had, also because he renounced all Anti-Corona-hygiene measures arrogant.

In the stands the spectators were sitting close to each other, even without a Mouth guard. The players hugged each other, posed - again without a Mouthguard, with groups of children for photos, wrote in the crowds of people signing autographs and then went in the evening also celebrate together. However, not somehow, but in a Club, with hundreds of people. There was dancing, loud singing and tight, some with naked upper bodies. Warm air, enclosed space, sweat, saliva, droplets, aerosols - in short: a Paradise for corona virus. The tennis professionals to Djokovic, it was, apparently, no matter, or you were just too stupid to understand what danger you expose yourself.

"Everything we've done in the last month, happened with a pure heart and serious intentions," wrote Djokovic on his website about his Tour and refers to the fact that all the measures had been agreed with the authorities. But the Serb makes it much too easy. No one who has followed the news even remotely, you can go starry-eyed approach to the Organisation of a sports event, and certainly not if he has to wear in case of doubt, the responsibility.

But of responsibility Djokovic has heard, apparently, never been anything, and his role as a role model he has forfeited. Before he was noticed - as President of the Spielerrats the ATP after all, a kind of Class President of the tennis pros - that he had scolded the announced Corona-measures at the U.S. Open, to be held in early September in New York, to be too restrictive and excessive. Whether or not he should overdo it with the hygiene measures at his own tournament at the Adriatic sea maybe a bit more would have, he can think of now in the 14 days of home quarantine, Yes, in peace. But, as I said, no malice!

Adriatic Tour: consequences for other Events?

could, However, have the Djokovic-Disaster on the Adriatic sea, in addition to the possible health consequences for players, spectators, and all other parties Involved as well as their confined environment and families, also other consequences: Many organizers of other sporting events to be held this year, will have behind closed doors, the hair struggled and that Djokovic plattwalzt the "delicate flower of the loose" as with the Bulldozer.

  • comment by Nicolas Kiefer: Djokovic is just not a good role model as a number 1

Like a Tour de France with spectators, for example, in view of the consequences of the Adriatic Tour is still possible? Or other events in which an Isolation of the competition site is difficult? The danger is that the authorities in other countries to speak more of a ban than to allow a major event is not?

Perhaps some of the organizers were also very happy that Novak Djokovic at the Adriatic Tour has experienced with his lax hygiene measures as an organizer, a noise at the end of the belly landing. Because you now know how you should not make. Because even if you can't do anything - as a cautionary tale, you can always serve.
