Novak Djokovic may be forced to skip the US Open after claiming his 21st Grand Slam at Wimbledon owing to US admission requirements. The Serbian would not be able to travel to New York to compete in the US Open due to the existing restrictions set by the US government, which demand that visitors provide a complete vaccination course at the border.
Through his Instagram account, Djokovic wished to express his gratitude to his supporters for their assistance in recent weeks. The reigning Serbian champion is still working out regularly in the hopes that anything may change before the competition begins.
“I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to all of you for the many messages of love and support I have been receiving lately from all over the world. It’s unique that people have such a warm and positive connection with my tennis career and want me to continue competing.
While I am awaiting word on whether or not I will be given the opportunity to visit the United States, I am preparing as if I am allowed to compete. Cross your fingers!”
Let Novak Djokovic play, said Claudia Tenney.
Numerous eminent Americans have backed Djokovic.
US Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, who served as a representative for the State of New York in the House from 2017 to 2019, was the last to voice her dissatisfaction with the situation that developed. On Twitter, Claudia Tenney wrote to Novak Djokovic directly: “I requested the Secretary of State to participate in the US Open in a letter.
Additionally, I’m working to increase Congress’s support. Don’t worry, I won’t quit. Allow Novak to play!” John McEnroe supported Djokovic as well. The Serbian should be on the field for the upcoming US Open, according to the former American champion.
Soon after Djokovic won Wimbledon, McEnroe said: “I believe politics impeded things far too much. Australia experienced it at the beginning of the year. Allow Novak Djokovic to travel to America and compete in the US Open.
It is a pointless precaution that will only harm tennis. If Nole was unable to participate in the season’s final Grand Slam, it would be a terrible disappointment.”
