And the epic final and the epic piece of history happened with the best player removed. This really will be an epic record with a huge asterisk next to it. Something like 21*.
Yeah, here`s the thing......outside Serbia and the (ever decreasing) circle of DJO-fans this asterisk you refer to is not nearly as huge as you seem to believe.
And assuming that DJO would have been in that final if he would have played the tournament is, well, to put it mildly: arrogant.
This assumption is also pretty disrespectful to all the other players that complied with the regulations and gave it their best.
DJO is his own worst enemy......he caused his own trouble with regards to entering Australia.
He was also disqualified from the US Open in 2020 for scandalous behaviour, so I guess that counts as another DJO tournament victory for (some) Serbian people and Novak fans!?? The list of fantasy titles for DJO grows quickly like this.
But in the real world, RAFA is the winner this weekend as he complied with all regulations and played the best tennis.
That will be in the history books, I`m afraid.
The history of sports is full of "what if`s?", but they don`t count!
