“I have news from Wimbledon. One is good news and other is farewell news. What do you want to know first,” asked Scorch with a cheery smile.

“The good news first,” replied the others.

“Novak Djokovic has won the Wimbledon, and this is just the news his fans needed this year. He beat his opponent, Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios. It is Djokovic’s first Grand Slam title win since Wimbledon last year. The Serbian player has said this win has more significance after his Australia problems.

Do you guys know that this Wimbledon is his fourth consecutive win,” said Scorch. The Gifted Four clapped to celebrate this win.

Wimbledon Championships is a tennis tournament held in the suburbs of Wimbledon in London, England. It is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments and the only to be played on a grass court. A grand slam is significant competition in that sport. In tennis, there are four, the other three being the Australian Open, US Open, and French Open.

“Oh, I remember what had happened. Djokovic has not received the vaccine against the Covid-19 virus. At the start of the year, he was traveling to Australia for the Australian Open under exemption permission. It’s a permit excusing a person from an activity. But the Australian government objected and had him deported,” said Felix in a quick breath.

“Now he can participate in all the tournaments,” asked Orak.

“I think it will impact his games. As of today, Djokovic will not be able to compete at the US Open as unvaccinated non-residents are not allowed to enter the country,” replied Scorch.

“Does he intend to get vaccinated then?” said Verum.

“No. Djokovic informed that the only way he can play is either the host countries allow non-residents to enter the country or allow him to play under the exemption. But after this win, it is also reported that Australia has lifted the ban and will allow him next year to compete,” informed Scorch.

The other three nodded.

Verum asked, “What’s the farewell news about?”

“Top players like Roger Federer, Andy Murray, and others gave a heartfelt farewell to Sue Barker, a 66-year-old sports presenter at the Wimbledon finals. Baker called it a day after 30 years of service as broadcasting person for the company BBC.”

“A career spanning over 30 years is truly remarkable!” replied Orak.
