“This trophy is yours as much as it is mine.”
Here is someone with real class, not just as one of the world’s best tennis players, and not only as an athlete of unswerving focus and excellence, but as someone with exceptional sportsmanship, character, and kindness.
Novak Djokovic is our Hero of the Week again. Ten-time winner of the Australian Open tournament, Djokovic stood his ground last year to remain unvaccinated in the face of relentless media tyranny and disgusting political pressure—and yet returned to win and shine.
His speech after winning against Stefanos Tsitsipas shows, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that this was not only a victory of a tennis champion but a spiritual victory of a man of principle and great humanity. No bitterness, no rancor, only fairness and sportsmanship.
