For the seventh time in his career, Novak Djokovic recently won Wimbledon, matching his idol Pete Sampras. As a result, the former world number one has turned around a season that had taken a turn for the worse due in part to his decision to forego a coronavirus vaccination.
The Australian Open at the start of the year and the Masters 1000 events at Indian Wells and Miami in the spring both had to be forfeited by the Serbian champion. The 35-year-old from Belgrade has elevated himself to 21 Majors and decreased the distance separating him from Rafael Nadal in the all-time rankings thanks to his fourth consecutive victory on the London Meadows.
Given that the vaccination is necessary to enter the country, it seems unlikely that Nole will be allowed to fly to the United States to compete in the final Grand Slam of the season. The “Djoker” has already stated that he will not participate in side events to earn points.
His participation in the Laver Cup, which will be held at the O2 Arena in London from September 23 to 25, was just recently revealed. He will be joined by Andy Murray, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer. Goran Ivanisevic discussed his work with Djokovic in a recent interview with “Nova TV.”
Ivanisevic discusses Djokovic.
“Working with Novak Djokovic is both an honor and a joy, according to Ivanisevic, who also described Djokovic as a man who has accomplished everything but is still ambitious and driven to succeed. He’s had a challenging, unjust year; a lot of unpleasant things have happened to him.
He deserved that Wimbledon since he and Kyrgios, two of the best tennis players in the world on grass, competed in the final “Ivanisevic continued. Ivanisevic reacted to the circumstance by lamenting the Serb’s exclusion from entering the nation despite his good health and negative coronavirus test.
Ivanisevic emphasized, “If you are unvaccinated and test negative, then you cannot enter America. If you are vaccinated and infected, you can enter America.” Last year, it was the US Open. That year, Novak Djokovic went close to completing a Calendar Year Grand Slam by capturing his fourth Grand Slam championship.
It was an exceptional accomplishment that famous athletes like Serena Williams, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal had never achieved. Gonzalez, a former World No. 5, revealed in an interview that he wanted to see Djokovic win the Calendar Grand Slam.
He declared, “We all applauded for Novak Djokovic last year when he came so close to completing the ‘Calendar Grand Slam.'” It would have been a challenging task.
