For me, it's getting to the point where I blame some people for catching it. My first thought about Murray wasn't "hope he's okay" but "wtf did you do to catch it?" He has all the means to take every precaution.
^ Yes, I completely agree. That was exactly my first thought with Murray, Keys, and the others, as well.
While it is possible to contract the virus through some fluke, or a relatively innocent few seconds of inattention, it is mostly contracted though irresponsible behaviour.
And there is absolutely no excuse for irresponsible behaviour at this point. NO-ONE can claim ignorance. NO-ONE. We ALL know what to do and what NOT to do - we've ALL been told over and over and over unceasingly for the past 10 months.
And so, irresponsible behaviour is SOLELY the result of stupidity and selfishness. While it is mostly younger people who are afflicted with these defects, it is not only younger people.
Some - like the 'rich and famous' (which applies to some tennis players) have also been conditioned to believe that common rules simply don't apply to them, because they are somehow 'better' than common folk.
It's mind boggling why this continues to be permitted.
If I'm in charge of the Aussie Open, I would remove Kuznetsova and Yastremska from the draw immediately, based on that photo - period. No question, no appeal - just gone.
