Rublev said he tested positive pre-flight to Australia but Border Force still let him in to compete at the AO.

Not about health after all eh.

Hardly news is it? This from 3 weeks ago.

Djokovic didn't qualify for a medical exemption from Australia's rules for unvaccinated visitors so his visa was cancelled. Rublev was vaccinated.

Yep maybe GOAT status confirmed ?
Definitely can’t move like he used to but still some amazing shots etc and was an epic match.

What’s wrong with Medvedev? Trying to take mantle from Djok as biggest twat on tour?

So glad that Nadal won because Medvedev comes across like a petulant man-child. I do kind of feel bad for him after watching the post-match press conference though. Combination of Nadal being a favourite, rowdy partisan Aussie crowd and Medvedev being Russian, I can appreciate him getting defensive.
