So because his words are going to be heard in the tennis community he should moderate his words?
Of course he should. When you're given a voice, like his career has, one has to know hwo to use it. Being 100% honest is highly overrated. I love my sister more than anything in the whole world, but if I were 100% honest with her all the time we would probably be fighting very often.
That sounds reasonable and is the smart thing to do. However, if he chooses not to, he should be allowed to make that choice. There is no moral imperative to be moderate, smart and decent.
I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to insult people, therefor he is going to jail.
He obviously can choose to be an a**, but he has no moral right to say the stuff he supposedly said in an interview. Call me conservative or too touchy feely, but this is not acceptable.
Yes, Djokovic and Federer will hear those comments. Most probably they will confront Jabowicz with what he said. And Janowicz will have the responsibility to own up to what he said. In that hypothetical situation ( I hope
) you described I would not feel good about what that person said. I would confront him with it. I would not, however, dispute his right to say it. If somebody thinks I'm too full of my self f.i., they should be able to say so. And when I confront them about it, then they can explain themselves. Nole and Fed can do the same.
He has the civil right to say it, if you want to go that way, yes.
Like I said, he is not going to jail because of that. But he does not have the moral right to do such a thing, again, in an interview
