The likelihood of Novak Djokovic competing in the upcoming US Open is dwindling. The Serbian was unable to compete in the American Masters 1000 and, more importantly, travel to New York prior to the year’s last Grand Slam due to American restrictions that demand travelers to demonstrate a complete immunization cycle at the border.
Despite this, Djokovic, a Belgrade native, has made the decision to train constantly and hold out until the very last second in the hopes that the country’s entry requirements may alter. With the words of John McEnroe and other American celebrities, as well as a petition that was started on the renowned free social campaigning website change.org, support for Djokovic has exploded in recent days.
The 21-time Slam champion wanted to express his gratitude to everyone who followed him on Instagram. To take a time to express his gratitude to everyone, Djokovic tweeted, “I just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone how glad I am to see so many messages of support and love from all over the world these days.
“I didn’t anticipate it, which is why everything is so fantastic. I just wanted to express my gratitude. It’s unique that people have such a warm and positive connection with my tennis career and want me to continue competing.
While I wait to see if I will be permitted to travel to the United States, I am preparing as if I am allowed to compete. Let’s hope for the best. Djokovic has joined both the US Open and the Cincinnati Masters 1000, but everything will depend on the rules that apply in the upcoming weeks.
The USTA has made it clear that the competition will follow the government’s stance on the entry of foreigners into the US but won’t place any restrictions on players who aren’t immunized.
Novak Djokovic and Ivanisevic
Goran Ivanisevic, who has been Novak Djokovic‘s lone coach since Marian Vajda’s departure in March of last year, is a content coach following Wimbledon, when Serbia won its 21st Grand Slam title.
The Wimbledon champion from 2001 is not at all surprised by the Big 3’s continued dominance, especially if Roger Federer has been sidelined for a year due to injury. “I was already predicting that Novak and Nadal would end up outwinning Federer before I became Djokovic‘s coach. They have no restrictions if they are healthy. They should keep winning, in my opinion.
