In an appeal to help Novak Djokovic enter the United States and compete in the US Open 2022, John McEnroe lauded the Serbian tennis star for his resilience. This is what McEnroe had to say about it: “To be sure, Novak Djokovic is among the best of all time, but he does not get the praise he deserves.
Although I disagree with his decision to avoid vaccinations, I respect his right to do so. He is completely healthy and cautiously considers any new substance he may be exposed to. It’s too bad the media has painted such a negative picture of it.
What happened in Australia was a catastrophe, and I pray it never happens again. Nole endured a lot of pain because of how poorly the situation was handled. I’m happy to hear that he made a full recovery, proving once again what remarkable mental fortitude he possesses.
I really hope he will be able to compete in the US Open,” John said of the Serbian player. We need a champion like him in Flushing Meadows, so please figure out a way for him to participate.”
Due to the current visa situation, Djokovic is unable to enter the United States.
Novak Djokovic won Wimbledon for the seventh time, making it four in a row that he has taken the title.
Though he did not have a perfect tournament, the former world No. 1 was again the best player over the full five sets. This brings the Serbian phenomenon’s total number of Grand Slam titles to 21, putting him within striking distance of Rafael Nadal and allowing him to pass Roger Federer.
The Belgrade native, who is now 35 years old, saved a season that was heading for disaster. The Australian soap opera may have been the final straw for Nole, who may now be forced to forego even the US Open because of the consequences of his decision not to get vaccinated against the Coronavirus.
The ‘Djoker’ has fallen in the ATP rankings and faces a very real possibility of falling even further over the next few months. The twenty-one-time Grand Slam winner has already said he will not try to enter the United States by any means necessary next month.
More information on the matter, including whether or not the Serb will play in Flushing Meadows, is expected in the coming weeks.
