Through his Twitter profile, the well-known British oncologist Karol Sikora talked about 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 felt entitled to judge. Unfortunately, we are aware that these vaccines do not prevent the virus from spreading significantly. Banning Nole or any other unvaccinated entry into the US is profoundly wrong, as well as useless.
I hope they allow him to play.” Jonathan Reiner also spoke on the issue: “I think Djokovic should be able to play in 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 of society. Novak thought only of himself by carrying out acts of pure selfishness, especially last winter.”
All that remains is to wait for further updates.
Novak Djokovic at the US Open: what will happen?
Novak Djokovic’s participation in the 2022 US Open is still uncertain. A few days ago, the CDC equated vaccinated and unvaccinated in terms of internal treatment, but the rules at the border have not been changed for the time being.
The former world number 1 has experienced a turbulent season due to his choice not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus. In addition to not having been able to defend the title at the Australian Open at the beginning of the year, the Serbian champion had ended up at the center of an absurd soap opera.
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. Nole lifted a very disappointing season by triumphing at Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career and equaling Pete Sampras. Nole thus hoisted himself to 21 Majors, taking him to just one length away from Rafael Nadal in the all-time ranking.
