‘We are a conformist society’: Djokovic rails against ‘elite’ over money in tennis

21 Nov, 2021 10:20
Novak Djokovic has warned that the "elite is always going to look after the elite" and pledged not to be "part of the herd" in his bid to ensure lower-ranked players earn more money from tennis.

The world number one controversially launched the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA) at the 2020 US Open, which was seen by some as a divisive move to create a breakaway group from the ATP Tour.

Alongside co-founder Vasek Pospisil, Djokovic has always insisted that the needs of his fellow players are his primary concern and has now reiterated his position as a "kid from Serbia trying to make a difference".

This goes for every aspect of life, not just tennis: we are conformist as a society,” Djokovic told Sport Klub, speaking amid speculation that he could be forced to sit out the Australian Open in January because of vaccination requirements after he refused to confirm whether he would travel to the first Grand Slam of the year.

“It always feels better to be a part of the herd, rather than leave it and say: ‘People, this is not just, this is not the truth, I will raise my voice and try to fight for those less fortunate than me’.

"Unfortunately, most of the people choose the easier way, to only take care of themselves. Since tennis is an individual sport, that comes to the surface even more.

“You will never find stories in the media about how many people make a living out of this sport. Everyone is talking about how much Djokovic, Federer and Nadal make.

"On the other hand, nobody is mentioning that tennis is the third-most popular sport globally, but it is outside the top ten when it comes to players’ income, compared to other sports.

"The top 350-to-400 players [on both Tours] can make a living out of this sport. Let me see how much money the 150th-best player in any other globally renowned sport makes."

"Only if most players – especially top players - unite, we can do something concrete [which benefits the players]. Currently, we are getting nowhere, and that only suits people who have a monopoly position." (Full quotes, mostly Google Translate - but should be ok 👇) pic.twitter.com/0RTCDJq2Zn

— Oliver | Tennis (@insidetennis99) November 18, 2021

The PTPA, which is now thought to have hundreds of members, purportedly aims to increase prize money and make the revenue share given to players more transparent.

“PTPA and everything we are trying to do is for the benefit of those women and men who are trying to have their voice heard, but nobody is listening," said Djokovic, who is estimated to have made more than $153 million from tennis.

"Elite is always going to look after the elite, that is how it goes. But there is a kid from Serbia trying to make a difference.

"I know that I am a thorn in the side of many people because I am trying to break the monopoly that has been ruling tennis for quite some time now, for many years.

“I respect the ATP and the structure; I am a part of it and I have made a living out of ATP tournaments, along with the Grand Slams.

Its worth noting that in 2007 an article in the Washington Post spoke about a situation that developed in a hospital in which people falsely believed an outbreak of whooping cough was occuring. This situation developed because the PCR test was used to try and establish if people had the whooping cough and the test created false positives which were then counted as 'cases'. This then created a 'casedemic' which is to say a false perception of a pandemic created through fake cases. Lab tests using isolated whooping cough then affirmed that the people in fact did NOT have whooping cough.

 

Couldn't find the Washington Post article but found a New York Times one from then (2 pages)

nice catch!

 

I have edited that. If you see any other errors please let me know

 

That post can easily be shared around people as a way for people to see the big picture quickly. Hopefully it is written clearly and makes sense to to those unfamiliar with these terms and issues that we here have all been familiarising ourselves with over the last two years!

We need to have a conversation about coincidences.

This happens often, and we need to remove the stigma of dying from coincidence.

 

Coincidence is killing "famous" and public people like never before, but the truth is professional athletes were having strokes and heart attacks constantly long before the vax.

 

Evil White supremist anti-vaxxers are trying to claim otherwise, but coincidences have always happened, and if you’re hearing more about them now, it’s because the stigma has been removed from the coincidence.

 

Don't believe the hype about all those professional athletes dropping dead. They had these heart attacks for no reason.

It’s called a coincidence. They were struck down in their prime of life, in peak physical condition from coincidence.

 

Coincidences are quickly becoming one of the leading causes of death across the Western world. We need to do much more censorship in order to prevent racists from claiming that these deaths are related to the coronavirus vaccine, which The Science has already determined as a matter of absolute fact and faith is both safe and effective.

Now, time for your booster.

Guess what? In the next election (IF there is another one - I have serious doubts) She'll be re-elected with an overwhelming majority. I would bet heavily on that. So will Boris the Cunt.

Interesting that no country is disclosing how the mandatory jabs will be enforced.

 

Probably because guns will be involved.

Indeed.

 

I saw a Hugotalks recently where he was calling the bluff on Austria. if 35% of their population is still pureblood ~ 3.5Million people and their jails have a capacity of 8800 or something - where are they going to put them all?

Millions are rising up (and being shot at) all over the world - some countries have been non-stop for months - and the msm downplays it, demonizes it, or is silent! Why? As we know because it will give citizens ideas, make them think they're not alone, and bring more people out on to the street to fight the tyranny. Studies have shown it only takes 3.5% of a population to protest to ensure political change. Although it will take a hell of a lot more than that at this point in the game - they've gone all in and the Rubicon was crossed a year ago, the dye has been cast - still, they're frightened of this.

The Austrian Government have said the plans for next February will be fines for the unvaccinated. 

 

So I assume they will be under a permanent lockdown, only allowed out for groceries or medications. If they are outside without reason and they are checked by police, they will be fined. At the moment afaik the unvaccinated can work, for example in a restaurant, but after work can't visit same said restaurant for a meal.

 

Isn't Covid a clever bastard being able to tell the difference from a worker and customer!

 

"He spoke out after Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg and Health Minister Wolfgang Muckstein announced that anyone who is not vaccinated against Covid will be penalised - with Mr Schallenberg saying the punishment would likely be a non-criminal fine, though added the details are still being worked out"

Normally I wouldn't post the below audio video but I have been considering for some time that it is a possibility? (so just putting it out there)

Over the last 18 months there has been vastly too much information showing that this "covid" is bullshit .... even the downgrading of covid on the 19th March 2020 from a high consequence infectious disease .... and is planned (I mean that it is planned that it be known and provable that world governments purposely murdered their own people .... come on Klaus Schwab is a movie villain .... literally, just give him the fluffy cat!).

Although I would consider that those in government who did not 'act' as wanted (for their own ego/control/power), have now been 'spoken' with and promised shit (which they will not get, they will get an angry mob instead).

The 'mass' will never act until it is right in their face .... nice and personal .... and a child dying will bring it home (not so much the death of parents for the mass, as they earn from the parents death, or a lot do in the 1st world .... you know, stops the care home costs stripping the 'money' from the 'inheritance).

The mass including those in the armed forces will rise against 'authority' (as Bush senior said "If they knew what we have done, we would be hanging from lampposts by tomorrow morning!") .... then it is only a waiting game. Just wait for the 'mad max' starvation, pain and suffering .... abracadabra .... the new messiah (anti-christ) comes in to save those who are left .... with a one world authority?

It's a disgrace. Look back into Scotland's proud history and the names of the great jump out at you. Apart from the obvious (William Wallace, Robert the Bruce), Scots regiments served in every corner of the globe and in some of the bloodiest conflicts. I once stood before the breach at Seringapatam and saw for myself the spot where General Robertson led the 71st Highlanders up an impossible slope and on to victory. It was the Scots that relieved Lucknow. In the world of engineering, the Scots are leading lights, medicine too. Always great innovators, the world has much to thank Scotland for.

 

Now, we have so-called Scots Nationalists led by a nefarious group of grasping, greedy, inferior men (Salmond) and this wee lassie who shouldn't be running a chip shop. People now laugh at the Scots - a thing unheard of when I was growing up. I love Scotland. It's a wonderful place and they don't deserve to be led by that creature. Flora MacDonald must be turning in her grave.
