    RAFAEL NADAL appeared to fire a thinly-veiled dig at Novak Djokovic following his hotel quarantine demands ahead of the Australian Open. Djokovic came under heavy criticism for the list he sent to Tennis Australia to try and change the rules for those stuck in isolation in Melbourne. 4Rafael Nadal seemingly took a swipe at Novak Djokovic over his recent pulic commentsCredit: Reuters Nick Kyrgios was among those to hit back at the world No1 - branding him 'a tool' - before the Serb confirmed in a 636-word statement he wrote a letter to Australian Open bosses with a list of 'suggestions' on how to help disgruntled players. However, some took aim at Nadal - who, like Djokovic, is in better quarantine conditions in Adelaide - for not speaking out in support of his fellow pros. Spaniard Guido Pella said: “Djokovic’s balcony is bigger than my room. But at least he said something. "I’m surprised with Nadal and (Dominic) Thiem’s silence." Nadal, though, responded by insisting 'some of us do it privately'. Speaking publicly for the first time since arriving...

    Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, has been in the news lately, for matters not related to the tennis court. On the eve of the US Open 2020, he stepped down from the president’s post of the ATP Player Council and formed a separate body called the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA).  Djokovic felt that there was an injustice done towards the lesser-known players and hence formed the PTPA. As we’re entering the new season, the Serbian hero has taken up another issue.  Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates at the trophy presentation ceremony after winning the men’s singles final match against Dominic Thiem of Austria on day fourteen of the 2020 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on in Melbourne, Australia.

    NICK KYRGIOS has branded Novak Djokovic a tool for demanding quarantine rules are eased ahead of the Australian Open.

    Quarantined Australian Open tennis stars were told today that they would get no 'special treatment' after Novak Djokovic demanded that the 72 players isolating in hotels be allowed to move to private homes with tennis courts.  Djokovic's reported list of demands included a shorter quarantine period, permission for players to visit their coaches, and access to courts where they could train for the tournament in Melbourne.    But state premier Daniel Andrews said authorities would not bend the rules, telling the players that 'there's no special treatment here... because the virus doesn't treat you specially, so neither do we.'     Djokovic - who is staying separately in Adelaide - was one of several tennis stars to complain about players' conditions in Australia, where locally transmitted infections are minimal and strict border closures have been in place for months.  But Britain's Heather Watson made light of the situation by filming herself taking a three-mile run with hundreds of lengths of her own hotel room.  Novak Djokovic, pictured on his hotel balcony in Adelaide, has reportedly issued a list of demands for stranded...
    Novak Djokovic has reportedly issued a list of demands for the tennis players forced into hard quarantine in the lead up to the Australian Open.  The Grand Slam tournament is in crisis three weeks before the first ball is served with 72 tennis stars isolating in hotel rooms for 14 days and unable to practice. Five passengers across three charter flights into Melbourne carrying players, support staff and broadcast crews have now tested positive to the virus in the past week.  The infected passengers, including a flight attendant, the coach of Canadian tennis star Bianca Andreescu and a member of a broadcast crew, all tested negative before their flights.  Due to Australia's strict Covid protocols, the affected players will now be confined to their hotel rooms for the next 14 days, despite initially being told they would be able to leave for five hours a day to train. Anti-vaxxer Djokovic, who flew in with a team of 10 people to Adelaide and is not subject to the same hard quarantine, has reportedly called on Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley to...

The makeup mogul was notably absent from Kim's 40th celebrations on a private island - as well as a family trip to Wyoming earlier this month. 6Kylie Jenner is at war with sister Kim Kardashian It's believed Kylie, 23, had work commitments and couldn't make it to join her family.

    Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary is urging all those in the presidential line of succession to quarantine themselves because they’re in 'sensitive' positions, should anything happen to the president. Jeh Johnson, 63, who served under former President Barack Obama from 2013 to 2017, spoke out on CNN and MSNBC on Friday, urging officials in power to take precautions as Donald Trump undergoes treatment for COVID-19. On Friday evening Johnson spoke to CNN's Wolf Blitzer suggesting the top half of those in the presidential line of succession should quarantine now as a precaution. 'I think, respectfully, that those in the presidential line of succession, particularly the top half line of succession, should think very seriously about some form of quarantine for themselves while we’re in this period,' Johnson said.    Those people in the top half of the line of succession, in order, are Vice President Mike Pence, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, President pro tempore of the Senate Chuck Grassley, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper, and Attorney General William Barr....
    Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a set of draconian coronavirus restrictions, including fines of up to £10,000 for breaching self-isolation, as the Mayor of London floated the idea of a second lockdown and curfews in the British capital. Starting from September 28th, people in England will face quarantine fines of £1,000, which can rise to £10,000 for repeated breaches of the self-isolation mandates. Those found to have tested positive for the Chinese virus, as well as those who are deemed to be a close contact of someone else who tested positive, will be required to self-isolate. The move to introduce fines, which will be enforced by police and local authorities, represents a drastic increase in restrictions on the British public.

    German migrant transport NGO Sea-Watch has complained that Italian authorities have taken too long to accept the transfer of migrants to quarantine ships, after dropping off 353 migrants this week. The NGO was able to begin the transfer to a quarantine vessel located off the coast of the Sicilian capital of Palermo. The quarantine ship, the Allegra, also saw 181 migrants transferred from Porto Empedocle and Lampedusa this week as well. “The transfer of 353 people from Sea-Watch 4 to the ship where they will carry out a quarantine period off Palermo has begun. It has been almost two weeks since our first aid and the people on board, including women and children, are exhausted,” the NGO said, according to Il Giornale. Giorgia Linardi, a spokeswoman for Sea-Watch, added: “We insist that it should not take eight to ten days before a ship, which rescues people at sea, to reach a port.” She said many migrants aboard suffered from seasickness and had sustained other injuries from their time in Libya.
