Tennis: Djokovic is definitely not allowed to participate in the US Open

It’s about the US Open

Djokovic’s decision has definitely been made

Novak Djokovic (35) had hoped to change the situation in the United States so that he could enter and play in the US Open. He also relied on the help of US President Joe Biden (79) himself. But nothing will come of it now.

“I don’t think the exception is realistic,” Novak Djokovic, 35, recently told Serbian television station RTS. The tennis star meant his entry to the United States. And he was right: the Serbs are not allowed into the United States and therefore will not fight for their 22nd Grand Slam title at the US Open.

“The US Open does not require players to be vaccinated, but will respect the US government’s position on the entry of non-vaccinated non-US citizens,” a statement from the tournament organizers said.
