Through his Twitter profile, the well-known British oncologist Karol Sikora spoke about the Novak Djokovic-Us Open 2022 isuee. Karol explained: “Novak Djokovic has made the decision not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus.
It was his choice, which everyone feels entitled to judge. Unfortunately, we are aware that these vaccines do not prevent the virus from spreading significantly. Banning Nole or any other unvaccinated person from entering the United States is profoundly wrong, as well as pointless.
I hope they let him play” Jonathan Reiner also spoke on the subject: “I think Djokovic should be able to play at the US Open. At the same time, I think he has behaved very badly in the most delicate phase of the pandemic.
He was supposed to be an example to others, but he wasn’t. He acted selfishly and led many people to break the rules. Athletes are very influential and should represent the best in society. Novak only thought of himself doing acts of pure selfishness, especially last winter.”
It only remains to wait for further updates. Novak Djokovic’s participation in the US Open 2022 remains uncertain. A few days ago, the CDC equated vaccinated and unvaccinated in terms of internal treatment, but the rules at the border have not changed at the moment.
The former number 1 in the world has experienced a turbulent season due to his decision not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus. In addition to failing to defend his title at the Australian Open earlier this year, the Serbian champion has ended up at the center of controversy.
For the same reason, the 35-year-old from Belgrade also had to miss the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and Miami in the spring.
Djokovic on how much he enjoys the notoriety
Novak Djokovic stated that he doesn’t particularly enjoy the publicity, but understands that it is a part of his success.
“I don’t like that so much to be honest with you, I really don’t. I accept it but I don’t like it, I don’t like seeing myself everywhere. But I know it’s part of what I do and part of the success,” Djokovic said.
The 21-time Grand Slam champion noted that his father loves to boast about his accomplishments and hangs large banners and trophies of the Serb on the building above their family restaurant. “My father particularly likes to show off that his son is successful and everything and I understand that,” Djokovic said, adding, “Just above the restaurant that my parents are running, in that building he has permission I guess to put huge banners of me with different trophies and things that he likes, so you can actually see that from highway coming into the city.”
