The Open With An Asterisk

Rafael Nadal (Rafa) is the 5th best tennis player in the world in current standings.

He has qualified for the Australian Open (AO) men’s singles final to be played tomorrow. If he wins, then he will have more grand slam tournament victories than any player in history. But that will not give him the right to be called the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT)

A Nadal victory tomorrow will always be tainted by the fact that the reigning AO champion, the best player in the world rankings and the most successful.player ever in the AO, Novak Djokovic (Nole), has had his human rights trashed and been falsely imprisoned as part of a campaign of fear being waged against people by governments and other authorities around the world.

Sorry, Rafa.

Nole is the best.

PS I have publicly demanded an investigation by Victoria Police into the crime of false imprisonment committed against Novak. Nothing has been done to respond to my demand. I urge concerned readers of this blog to write to or call the Cheif Commissioner Shane Patton demanding an explanation for this failure to uphold the law.
