I found this link to an article about the issue written in proper English...

What she reveals reeks of utter selfishness from the players.

Cornet Reveals "Everyone Had COVID-19" at Roland Garros...

.
whatever one may feel about this, it certainly highlights the hypocrisy around banning Djokovic..!
I don't see it exactly that way...
The players are not the ones who banned Djokovic - the Australian government did that (in a very dysfunctional manner). Granted, most of the players at that time said that they supported banning players who refuse to get vaccinated - and so I guess one could see hypocrisy in that those players have now conspired to keep their dirty little COVID secret hidden from others.

I expected more from Cornet. She is one of the veterans on the tour... Leylah said she was really the only one who made her feel welcome on the tour... She's a mentor of sorts... And then she's part of this conspiracy to hide COVID cases.
Not exactly a great role model for the young ones - encouraging them to manipulate and deceive...

my point is - if the tournaments are really concerned about the health of players and everyone around them, they should test everyone every day. Granted, Wimbledon is not making any such claim. But the players who were so self-righteous when it came to Djokovic.. why are they now resorting to Omerta?

RG had a different criteria than the Aussie open, and the EU/France had a different criteria than Australia for entry. Sure, Alize opened a stinking can of worms because there is no reason to not believe her (some other players should confirm the story, but by now, I wonder who would) and if all players agreed to a policy of "don't test, don't tell", the tours have to address it.
As for Djokovic. We know that this may be his last slam of the year because the USA seems nowhere near relaxing the entry requirement, for foreigners, to be vaccinated. He has made it clear he won't, so the USO is off limits. His decision.

Bautista Agut withdraws with C19.
And takes out a huge bandwagon of the SP.
He showed symptoms and was feeling not well.

McEnroe calls for special dispensation for Djokovic to play at the USO:
John McEnroe calls for 'ridiculous' US vaccine laws to be relaxed for Novak Djokovic

It is a human trait, definitely. The moment something affects you or a person close to you (and Mac is very friendly with Novak), you no longer can make a proper call.
Gee, if only there was a solution for Djokovic to play the N. American circuit. But I can't think of ANY way that he could. None.

The ball is in Novak's court on this and he has all the control to end all of this. Get the jab and play or don't get the jab and risk the chances of playing in tournaments. All up to him.
