The participation of Novak Djokovic in the US Open is still in question. Moreover, due to US border crossing rules, the Serbian is effectively out of the running for the year’s final Grand Slam. The reason is again the vaccination issues of Nole – only those vaccinated against coronavirus have the right to enter the USA.
Djokovic will miss the US Open
American tennis legend John McEnroe responded to Djokovic’s question. “I don’t think this is a fair story. I think it’s a joke,” he told American reporters.
McEnroe called for more respect for vaccine skeptics: “Personally, of course, I would have vaccinated to play here, but Djokovic is very principled, he has strong principles, and we have to respect his principles as much as possible.” – explained the 4-time winner of the US Open.
“Personally, of course, I would have vaccinated to play here,.”
Nole now has very little hope as the Americans have announced a review of the rules, but so far, there is no news.
According to McEnroe, Rafael Nadal is the winner of the current situation: “Obviously, Nadal took advantage of all this very well. When a guy has won the Australian Open 9 times, it’s clear that he missed the opportunity.” – As you know, Djokovic was not competing at the Australian Open at the beginning of the year. Nadal won and became the sole record holder of Grand Slam tournaments.
