After Wimbledon, the next Grand Slam event is the US Open. The appointment is thus made in New York to find out who will succeed Daniil Medvedev. From August 29 to September 11, the players will therefore be in the United States for the last Grand Slam tournament. But will Novak Djokovic be present? The Serb has spoken on the subject.
A few days ago, Novak Djokovic somewhat saved his Grand Slam season by winning Wimbledon. At the end of a very good fortnight on the London turf, the Serb lifted his 21st Grand Slam title, the important one in the final against Nick Kyrgiosreturning on this occasion to a small length of the record of Rafael Nadal. However, to get back up to the Spaniard, the Serb may well have to wait a little longer. Indeed, after having already missed theAustralian Open at the beginning of the year after a huge controversy because of his non-vaccination against Covid-19, Djokovic may well experience a similar scenario for theU.S. Open. While the current world number 7 could act as a favorite for the New York side, however, he may not be able to travel to the United States to contest this last Grand Slam tournament of the season.

Bis repetition at the US Open?
At the start of 2022, Novak Djokovic was therefore unable to appear at theAustralian Open. While he had a medical exemption since he was not vaccinated against the coronavirus, the Serb had finally seen the Australian justice prohibit him from entering the territory. And history could now repeat itself on the side of the United States for theUS Opnm Indeed, if the government Biden has eased its measures against Covid-19, proof of vaccination is still required to enter American territory. No proof that Novak Djokovic therefore cannot present, having received no dose of vaccine.
“I want to be in New York”
The vagueness still remains concerning the presence or not of Novak Djokovic Al’U.S. Open. Reported by WeLoveTennis, the world number 7 spoke about this subject which is currently making a lot of talk. ” I have my position, and I always believe in the freedom to choose what is best for you. And I respect everything and everyone, I expect people to at least respect my decision. If I have permission, I’ll be there. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be here. This is not the end of the world. I wouldn’t go to America if I didn’t have permission. But I want to be in New York. I want to be in America. I want to be wherever I can possibly play. I am a professional tennis player. I don’t do politics. I don’t do anything else because I’m not interested “, then let go Djokovic.
“Let the guy come and play in the United States”
Novak Djokovic therefore hope to be present at theU.S. Open and he can count on the support of some big names in world tennis. Lately it’s John McEnroe who had pushed in favor of the Serb: “These politicians are getting in the way too much. They did it in Australia. Let the guy come and play in the States, I mean come on. It’s ridiculous “.
