Ben Fordham on Djokovic’s saga
During a segment on his show Ben Fordham Live on radio station 2GB, Fordham slammed the regulations that have kept Novak Djokovic out of the US Open. According to him, the Serbian player just wanted to play tennis and his entry ban into the US defied logic.

“It is embarrassing and it defies logic and science,” Fordham said. “He is one of the fittest people on the planet. He doesn’t drink, he travels with his own personal doctor and nutritionist. He has recovered from having COVID-19 already.”
