An old rival of epic battles, Andy Murray, has also expressed himself in these hectic days of Novak Djokovic. The three-time Grand Slam winner didn't say much, but he wanted to emphasize the gravity of all the circumstances of the case and that none of these events are good for tennis: "I think it's really bad."
Andy Murray briefly commented on Novak Djokovic's case: "I think everyone is shocked by the circumstances to be honest. I'm going to say two things right now. The first thing is that I hope Novak is well. I know him well, I have always had a good relationship with him and I hope he is well.
The second thing I'll say about it is that it's not good for tennis at all and I don't think it's good for anyone involved." Following these two statements, however, the British tennis player declined to comment further: "What I would like to do right now is just wait for all the facts to emerge about what happened, because every day something new is coming out and we hear new information all the time.
I need to wait and hear exactly what the situation is before commenting on it further, because again I don't think it's fair because it's partly speculation. Things have come out that don't even look good."
"I want to hear all the facts before expressing all my thoughts about it." As for the tennis court, Andy Murray will return to the Sydney Open, after being defeated in the round of 32 by Argentinian Facundo Bagnis with the result of 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.
Garbine Muguruza, who participated in the WTA 500 in Sydney, was among those who exhibited. The chaos linked to the Djokovic issue is having a very strong echo, ending up also entering tournaments other than the Australian Open currently underway such as the Wta 500 in Sydney, known as the Sydney Tennis Classic.
Here on the scoreboard is the Spanish number 3 of the world Garbine Muguruza, who benefits from a bye in the first round and will face one between Ena Shibahara and Ekaterina Alexandrova in the round of 16. Speaking at the press conference on the eve of her debut, Muguruza also replied about the drama about Novak Djokovic: "Sooner or later we all have to get vaccinated - she declared - so I don't know why so much controversy, it's a show that doesn't help at all to tennis."
These are the words of the two-time Grand Slam champion, who then revealed her medical situation without any kind of problem: "I am vaccinated and I have no problems saying it. The truth is to enter a somewhat dangerous weed, but I am vaccinated and happy to do so, I don't see why it should be done differently."
