Glad that he won the trophy. Did the person(s) who handled that trophy disinfect it before he kissed it? Just thinking that his gesture was nice pre covid times but not now.

Hawkeye, the picture is from last year Japan Open, which I had the pleasure to attend. Djoko played phenomenally, it was the first time I saw him live. He attended on purpose to prepare for this year Olympics...

It is a pity they had to cancel the tournament, especially when other tournaments are opening. Indeed, if fans are allowed in, it's quite impossible to maintain any social distancing.

US Open should have been cancelled, along with the French. Not essential workers. Kudos for cancelling the Japan Open. However, the lower tier players need financial assistance, as they are not fatcats like the Big Three or others in that category.
