The day after for Novak Djokovic is definitely sweet. The Serbian tennis player brought home his seventh Wimbledon of his career on Sunday by beating Nick Kyrgios in four sets in a comeback and putting his 21st slam title on record (detached Roger Federer stopped at 20 and brought Rafael Nadal close again, who stands at 22).
The Belgrade champion received a shower of compliments from many sports champions, from insiders but also from tennis players on the circuit themselves. Among them was also that of his eternal rival to the fight of winning slams Rafael Nadal.
The Mallorcan tennis player, who had to forfeit the Wimbledon semifinal against Kyrgios due to an abdominal injury, commented under a post published by Novak Djokovic on Instagram:
“Wow, great moment, have fun and congratulations,” commented the Manacor bull who then “returned the favor” of the Serbian tennis player who had dedicated a post to him after his victory at the Australian Open.
Djokovic is likely to miss the Us Open
Djokovic, who most likely will not be able to participate in the U.S. tour due to his unvaccinated status, is therefore in serious danger of missing the Us Open.
About this possibility, the 21-time major winner was clear: “US Open? I’ll go on vacation and rest in the next two weeks. I’m pretty exhausted, I’ve played a lot in the last few months.
Then I will wait for good news from the US. I would like to play the US Open, the last Slam of the year. I am not vaccinated and I am not going to vaccinate now. The only good news that might come from the United States concerns the rules for entry into the country.
I don’t think there is any chance of receiving an exemption. If I cannot play this tournament, we will see what adjustments to make to my schedule. I doubt that I will participate in some tournaments just to get points.
As I learned from my agent, therencere a Slam allows you to qualify for the ATP Finals unless you are outside the top 20.” concluded the fresh Wimbledon winner.
