The Serbian confirms it on Twitter
Novak Djokovic miss the US Open!
The problem is now resolved – Novak Djokovic (35) will miss the US Open. The 21-time Grand Slam winner confirms this for himself on Twitter.
He will definitely miss the US Open: Novak Djokovic.
The draw for the US Open will take place in New York on Thursday evening (Switzerland time). A few hours before it became clear that a big name had disappeared: Novak Djokovic. The Serbian is banned from entering the country for his decision not to be vaccinated.
“Unfortunately, I will not be able to travel to New York for the US Open this time. Thank you for the messages of love and support. Good luck to my fellow players! I will stay in good shape and in a positive mood and will wait for an opportunity to compete again,” The Djoker wrote on Twitter .
Until recently, Djokovic hoped to change the conditions for entering the United States. On Wednesday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its website with guidelines for travelers. The vaccination requirement for non-US citizens remained in place, and the fate of the Serbs at the US Open seemed sealed.
Djokovic has not played a match since winning Wimbledon, as the major tournaments were held prior to the US Open in North America. After the Australian Open, the 35-year-old will miss the last major tournament of the year. (Named)
