Aus open 2021- Nadal takes swipe at Djokovic: Nadal makes a thinly veiled swipe at Djokovic; saying not everyone felt the need to “advertise” how they were trying to help

Rafael Nadal has had a mild go at Novak Djokovic’s quarantine complaints in the Australian open.

Djokovic had listed demands on the behalf of 72 players quarantined to the authorities demanding court side houses, among others.

However, his complaints fell onto deaf ears, and to the scepticism of the Australian Media ostracised him.

In an interview with ESPN, Nadal seemed to be referencing Djokovic when he said: “Some need to make public all these things they do for others, some of us do it in a more private way without having to publicise everything.

“The calls we make to help the most disadvantaged players, some of us don’t need or want to advertise it.”

“It is understandable, respectable. Where is the line of privileges? I have a different view. Here in Adelaide our conditions have been better than most of the conditions in Melbourne, but some Melbourne players have larger rooms where they can perform physical activities, others smaller rooms where they cannot have contact with their coach or physical trainer. Where is the line? It is a matter of ethics, of which each one has his opinion.”
