Plot to Overthrow King Novak?

Now that two of the players in the Adria Tour organized by Novak Djokovic have tested positive for Covid 19 virus (Grigor Dimitrov and Borna Coric), there seems to be a world wide attack on the ATP world no. 1 player.

Djokovic is under fire now for not taking the virus and social distancing seriously, as his Tour showcased matches with a full stadium of people, ball kids and players ignoring all virus guidelines.

Djokovic is getting blasted by ATP players like Nick Kyrgios, the media and fans worldwide because his attempt to get pro tennis back in action has been shipwrecked and canceled because of Dimitrov and Coric supposedly contracting the virus or testing positive or whatever.

Djokovic is being accused of selfishness, which seems unfair, because he didn’t force any of the competitors to play, they came to Belgrade to play for the match reps, a pleasant mini vacation and of course monetary reward.

A big player party which featured loud music and players dancing and embracing is also a target that Djokovic is being ridiculed for. But again, did Djokovic force these players to celebrate with him? No.

Critics are saying Djokovic set a bad example by running the Adria Tour so carelessly. But Serbia is a different country and not under lockdown protocol.

It just so happens that bad luck has struck and Dimitrov and Coric are sick – or they just tested positive.

One possible scenario to consider – in this age of fake news and win at all costs mindset – could Dimitrov and Coric have possibly faked or been manipulated to have fake positive tests? As in a scheme to launch an attack on Djokovic and his image, reputation off the court – because they can’t beat him ON the court?

Djokovic is very sensitive about his image and being accepted by the public and now he will be forced to defend his honor and character by an onslaught of media questions at the US Open and other ATP events when the pro tour resumes later this summer.

This Adria Cup flop is now a big distraction for Djokovic and it will be a challenge to silence the criticism and to regain his status and image as the premier champion of the sport.

Djokovic has been a target of late because of his anti-vaccine stance and his lack of regard for the virus. Now he will have to deal with the blowback of having two of his players testing positive. Djokovic’s worst nightmare has come true and he will need to dedicate plenty of time and energy for damage control.

There are a lot of forces in pro tennis who would like to remove Djokovic from the ATP throne. And the Adria Cup disaster could be the opening to begin the Djokovic downfall.

    “a big percentage of the Jews in the USA look white because they are the offsprings of European Jews who already mixed with the Germans, Slavs, etc here.”

    When I was in elementary school, my friends across the street were Jewish, and they basically looked white.

    “it’s the fact that they are an interest group whose interests are often against the interests of the host nation.”

    Yeah, there are a lot of creepy people in high places who are Jewish. 😛 The meanest professor I ever encountered at a university was Jewish too. He’d done his undergrad at Harvard, and was unbelievably arrogant. I don’t think he was nearly as smart as he thought he was.

    “well-known globalist jew, Soros is involved too”

    Oh, Soros is Jewish? Why am I not surprised??

    “And then she took the money she ripped off and went to Austria to spend it there. Maybe the migrants got some morsels, like a few boxes of food.”

    So it was a total racket.

    “When his third business failed they made him push down his pants (to check if he was circumcised)”

    Why should that matter??? 🙂

    “extra intellect and talents when the true source of their success is their interest group.”

    The interest group can afford to spend money like water??

    “and Christian ways of supporting or not supporting people like these. Vote for or against them.”

    You can also boycott any businesses they control.

    “zionist jews like Kushner”

    Not a fan of his.

    “Like what Scoop already mentioned, why support Israel with so much money when that money could be spent in the USA.”

    I believe in being a good ally to Israel, but with common sense, of course. 🙂

    “The interest group can afford to spend money like water??”

    In the long run it’s rewarding because they can take bigger risks and get bigger rewards. They put what they reap during the big harvests back into the tribe and put everybody else out of business.

    “I believe in being a good ally to Israel, but with common sense, of course.”

    I don’t believe in that tbh no matter which country i look at. Like what support are they atm to the USA? They are useless, they’re just taking the money but don’t give support when it is needed.

    When it comes to Europe and the USA Israel is milking everybody, it doesn’t matter which side you were on in WW2. The USA was against the Germans, why are they milking the USA? Or Poland!!!! lol they were attacked first during WW2 by the Germans and they want to donate Polish properties which weren’t “picked” up by relatives of former owners to random holocaust survivors. In recent years Polish people went on the streets with signs saying “Poland won’t be your next Palestine.”

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/jewish-group-warns-polish-debate-over-property-claims-has-turned-anti-semitic/

    Also Israel hates Russia for example just because they shook off the jewish financial chains, Russia will always get bad media coverage from the Israel controlled media. However, a country like Russia, with its natural and other resources is a much better ally to anyone, like Europe, China, USA than Israel who’s just milking literally everybody, no matter which side all those countries were on during WW2. Crazy, no?

  • Scoop Malinowski · June 28, 2020 at 8:25 am

    Israel should have a national holiday to salute America and the allies who saved them in WW2, a sort of Memorial day in Israel for all the Allied soldiers especially Americans, who fought for their survival. But they do not and rarely publicly express appreciation to America. I think Israel needs to change this and be a better ally for America.

    Keys lost to Kenin in Charleston and Brady beat Stephens. Brady had a good record in WTA this year and she is rolling over everybody in Charleston too, Brady got in the best shape of her life this off season and has taken it to another level, she is headed to top 10. Curious how Renae Stubbs, an avid left winger does not wear a mask watching Bouchard play. She coaches Bouchard but in the two matches I saw refuses to wear a mask. Bouchard has worked with Stubbsy and Graf and Agassi in Vegas but I don’t see her making top 50 again. She is ranked 330 something and the game passes her by, she did not improve as a player and the rest did. Her old game just doesn’t get the job done anymore. SHe works hard and trains hard off court but she has nothing to show for it, her results continue to be just ordinary. Wasted talent.

    Not Karen but Caroline Stoll is the player who played Rene Richards Richard Raskind in her first pro match as a woman in Orange NJ at the Tennis Week Open, run by Gene Scott.

    Stoll lost the first meeting but beat Richards in the rematch the next year,

    PORT WASHINGTON, L.I., April 16—The Billie Jean King posters came down from Caroline Stoll’s room tonight: the 16‐year‐old high school junior from Livingston, N.J., will play Mrs. King, one of her idols, tomorrow at 1 P.M. in the final of the $20,000 Lionel Cup tennis tournament

    The precocious Miss Stoll spoiled the anticipated first meeting between the top‐seeded Mrs. King and Dr. Renee Richards with a 6‐2, 5‐7, 6‐1 victory over the 42‐year‐old ophthalmologist in the semifinal round today at the Port Washington Tennis Academy. The triumph reversed a three‐set loss to Dr. Richards last summer at the Tennis Week open in South Orange, N.J.

    Mrs. King advanced to the final despite letting her mind and shots drift more than usual during a 6‐4, 6‐1 triumph over fourth‐seeded Jane Stratton of Salt Lake City.

    “It’s more of a disappointment not being in the final than not playing Billie Jean,” Dr. Richards said of her defeat in the 1‐hour‐45‐minute match.

    During her loss to Dr. Richards last summer, Miss Stoll was “in such a state of shock” from playing before a hometown crowd and the publicity surrounding her transsexual opponent that she remained at a loss to remember details from that match.

    The manner in which Dr. Richards was beaten might have convinced skeptics and spectators that she was not a threat in women’s tennis. She played more like a junior veteran than worldclass competitor. Mrs. King was among the first to ask what all the fuss had been about.

    “When you analyze her skill level as a player,” said Billie Jean, who teamed with Dr. Richards later in the day in doubles, “she hasn’t earned this publicity and she hasn’t set the world on fire. But I understand the pressure she’s under.”

    Since her appearance at the Tennis Week open, Dr. Richards has played in seven women’s tournaments. She has won about $10,850, but only one final, in Hawaii last November. She has been beaten by the likes of Lea Antonoplis, Karen Susman, Marcie Louie, Ann Smith, Mary Carillo and Miss Stoll, none of whom are ranked among the top 20 women players.

    Imagine the trauma of being a 15 year old and having to play a transgender in a packed stadium with fans and media. Shame they had to put a kid through that. Stoll lost the first meeting with RR 26 60 16 as a 15 year old high school junior. 3200 fans watched it.

    Caroline Stoll, a tiny 15-year-old who agreed to play in the Tennis Week Open after 25 of the 32 women players dropped out to protest Richards’ appearance, got closest to the nitty-gritty. While walking off the court after losing to Richards in three sets, she looked up at her towering opponent and boldly asked, “Are you in it for the money?” “That’s absurd, Caroline,” said Renee. “I make $100,000 a year as an eye surgeon. Would you change your sex for $1 million?”

    Later, after joining Richards at a press conference, the teen-ager voiced the one general sentiment that prevailed throughout the tournament. “Wow!” she exclaimed. “Did you see those forearms? That’s where she gets all that power and spin on her serves. It’s unfair.”

  • Sam · June 28, 2020 at 4:35 pm

    “‘That’s absurd, Caroline,’ said Renee. ‘I make $100,000 a year as an eye surgeon. Would you change your sex for $1 million?'”

    He was probably in it for the “high.” “Hey, I can’t cut it on the men’s tour, but I know I can beat these weak women!!!”

    If at first you don’t succeed, try changing your gender. 😛

    “exclaimed. ‘Did you see those forearms? That’s where she gets all that power and spin on her serves. It’s unfair.'”

    That’s where *he* got all that power and spin on *his* serves. And yes, completely unfair. Lunacy, in fact.

    JohnnyTD, you keep mentioning “Christian” principles, but are you not aware of two key passages in the Bible that promise blessings to those nations who bless Israel, and curses to those who curse her? 🙂

  • Sam · June 28, 2020 at 5:09 pm

    You know, I’ve noticed a decided lack of vitriol on this site now. Well, maybe one of us can impersonate a troll:

    “Scoop, you’ve REALLY gone off the deep end this time, and I’m NOT CALLING a lifeguard!!!”

    “I’ve reported your pathetic Web site to the Department of Homeland Security. So, if somebody comes knocking on your door soon in the middle of the night, it’s probably NOT going to be the Avon lady!!!”

    “Scoop, Biden is cruising to victory, and you know it! I’m going to laugh SO hard in a few months when we have a brand new President. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump doesn’t get a SINGLE VOTE!!! Times are changing, and your era of white privilege is nearing an end. “Black Lives Matter” is the new normal. You will be assimilated. DEAL WITH IT!!!!”

    “JohnnyTD, you keep mentioning “Christian” principles, but are you not aware of two key passages in the Bible that promise blessings to those nations who bless Israel, and curses to those who curse her”

    Well, i have to admit i don’t take the Bible literally. For me Christianity is a religion of light and logic. And besides, i’m not cursing Israel, but some of the things they pull off…. Like look at my country, it was dragged into WW1. We weren’t bosses there or anything, as a smaller and subordinate country (in 1848 when we wanted to get independent of Austria, lots of our people were killed, later 13 of our generals executed in Arad) in an alliance, we got dragged into it, then lost 2/3 of our territory, then it WW2 our people were used as cannon fodders. Then 40 years of Russian occupation but we’re paying compensation after compensation to this day to the rich Israel, that’s not justice.

    “You know, I’ve noticed a decided lack of vitriol on this site now. Well, maybe one of us can impersonate a troll:

    Hahaha that was epic read 😂

    About the trolls and random people leaving, it’s happening everywhere, on our forum too, at the start there were around 20 active people, but with some of them we had bad history, for example Clay Death deleted lots of volumes of our chat threads on tennis4you (and the owner didn’t have site backup) and they were pushing us about little things where there was no pushing needed, they were basically liberal morons like on mtf. In addition, Clay Death was posting his cannabis facebook groups when we don’t like drugs, but we put up with that too, and all his other bs, in the end, again, just to show off to some of the mtf noobs he gave us an ultimatum, he leaves if this and that, when there was totally no need for that so we just kicked him off. He did the same on every site he was member on so we got sick of him, now there are few members but at least everything is peaceful and friendly. In tennis times some casuals who are interested only in tennis post there too so there’s more activity, also my gaming buddies post for a few days occasionally when they’re free or something interesting happens.

    In the end people like these, who threaten with leaving will probably leave anyway, it’s better to stick with people who are like-minded or not like-minded but at least civilized and capable of cooperation and living together.

    When tennis restarts everything will be much cooler.

    BTW Betty wanted to post last time something about Djoko here but she’s in the mountains nowadays and posting from her phone and she had some problem when she tried to. When she’s back home in her city she’ll post from her laptop 😀

    BTW Sam this is the board where we post https://tennisdiscourse.com/community/ , sign up when you have the time and then we can chit-chat more about everything like Christianity (Betty is more of an old school Christian and a church goer than me) or about Serbia, I went there often, even in wartime and could write a book about them, hopefully we can build a right wing or at least common sense community in the tennis world.

    A lot of time before the end of summer to improve the situation but also a lot of time for things to get worse. The mayor of NYC De Blasio is a liberal lunatic and can’t be trusted. Democrats actually want chaos and confusion, they think it improves their chances to take power back from Trump and patriots. They are desperate.

  • JohnnyTD · June 29, 2020 at 2:50 pm

    Unreal how the moronic demonrat fanatics jumped on the completely idiotic Russian bounty fake news. Cause Putin has nothing better to do than liquidate average joes from the US. As if it could have made any difference in that hellhole in the first place. This new attempt is a completely imbecilic “they eat children” level bs. The demonrats are much better at getting American people killed by feeding the current chaos and gun violence in America. Fake news, stupid cold war propaganda, chaos in the USA and this is what they call innovation and progress? The demonrats will drown in their own 💩

  • Scoop Malinowski · June 29, 2020 at 4:55 pm

    They have to project their real treason on Trump with faked treason.

  • Sam · July 4, 2020 at 3:20 am

    “Well, i have to admit i don’t take the Bible literally.”

    Thanks for explaining that, JohnnyTD. Helps me understand where you’re coming from better.

    “i’m not cursing Israel, but some of the things they pull off….”

    Oh, I don’t agree with everything Israel does, nor do I even believe that the Bible commands that.

    “Then 40 years of Russian occupation but we’re paying compensation after compensation to this day to the rich Israel, that’s not justice.”

    I can see your point.

    “Hahaha that was epic read 😂”

    Thanks—had a lot of fun writing those. 🙂 In fact, if I put my mind to it, I think I could be a pretty decent troll myself!!! LOL. 😉

    “About the trolls and random people leaving, it’s happening everywhere, on our forum too”

    Lose a troll, save a forum. 🙂

    “for example Clay Death deleted”

    Recognize that name from MTF. He posted some weird things there.

    “just to show off to some of the mtf noobs he gave us an ultimatum, he leaves if this and that, when there was totally no need for that so we just kicked him off.”

    Smart move. He obviously just wanted a power struggle.

    “got sick of him, now there are few members but at least everything is peaceful and friendly.”

    Quality is always more important than quantity.

    “In the end people like these, who threaten with leaving will probably leave anyway”

    Right. Unless they’re *really* being treated unfairly and not just acting like drama queens, people who pull stuff like that are just a liability.

    “but at least civilized and capable of cooperation and living together.”

    Yes, that’s the main thing. You don’t have to agree on everything, but when you disagree, it’s important to at least be civilized about it.

    “BTW Betty wanted to post last time something about Djoko here”

    She posts on this forum?

    “but she’s in the mountains nowadays and posting from her phone and she had some problem when she tried to. When she’s back home in her city she’ll post from her laptop 😀”

    I’ve never posted to a forum from a phone before. 🙂

    “BTW Sam this is the board where we post https://tennisdiscourse.com/community/ , sign up when”

    Thanks for the reminder—I’ll have to make a note for myself to do that.

    “(Betty is more of an old school Christian and a church goer than me)”

    Doesn’t that cause some problems in your relationship?

    “or about Serbia, I went there often, even in wartime and could write a book about them”

    Can you speak some Serbian?

    “hopefully we can build a right wing or at least common sense community in the tennis world.”

    Well, I can’t promise that I’d end up posting much, but at least I will try to register. 🙂

  • JohnnyTD · July 4, 2020 at 9:42 am

    “Thanks—had a lot of fun writing those. 🙂 In fact, if I put my mind to it, I think I could be a pretty decent troll myself!!! LOL. 😉”

    Haha, i read something wise about trolling recently, an elderly mathematics teacher, a legend too, in my fav computer game, Path of Exile was banned from the forum for something they considered trolling, they made a thread about his disappearance and the conclusion was that he got offended by the ban and didn’t return, they also said that if you hang around too much on a forum you get tired of repeating the same logical arguments in your favourite topic and consciourly or unconsciously start trolling, and mods ban you, well, that’s why mainstream forums and their dumb rules suck.

    “She posts on this forum?”

    She reads it from time to time, last time wanted to post but her post was lost so she said she would try later from her laptop.

    “I’ve never posted to a forum from a phone before. 🙂”

    We’re laptop people too, especially me, i’m a gaming nerd haha. So i usually post from laptop even what other people would post from phone.

    “Doesn’t that cause some problems in your relationship?”

    Not really, sometimes she scolds me jokingly for not going to church on major church holidays or not knowing about the Bible enough but tbh i’m more of a traditional european way of life person, and i’m often quite busy for it, ofc if the survival of Christianity depended on me i would learn the Bible by heart and would go to the Church evey day 😀

    “Can you speak some Serbian?”

    My listening skills used to be ok but not really, especially lately, i know quite a lot about the people though.

    “Well, I can’t promise that I’d end up posting much, but at least I will try to register. 🙂”

    That would be great, you could cover the American time zone with Scoop 😀 about posting, often even Betty doesn’t post, my gaming buddy Ewhenn is a mod but he hasn’t logged in for a year but totally no problem, i know he’s busy with work and school haha. However, even in times when there’s no tennis or when we’re busier it’s good to have a place where we can stay in contact, share pictures, vids, when something important happens.
