According to John Isner, he is reportedly working behind the scenes to get Novak Djokovic admitted to the US Open. Djokovic, a 21-time Grand Slam winner, is not eligible to enter the US as an unvaccinated foreign visitor since he has not received the COVID-19 vaccination. As a result, he will likely miss the US Open.
Are any active tennis players pleading with the US to grant @DjokerNole a platoon status, or not? Seth Dillon tweeted a question. Isner responded to Dillon’s tweet by calling it “total nonsense” that Djokovic‘s lack of immunization prevents him from competing at the US Open.
“Yes. Complete madness, he is currently unable to compete. #science “Isner responded by saying.
Yes. Complete madness, he is currently unable to compete. John Isner (@JohnIsner), August 3, 2022, “#science”
Isner desires Djokovic to attend the US Open.
Since Wimbledon, Djokovic has had a lot of support from people who think it’s “crazy” that the Serb would miss the season’s final Grand Slam because to his immunization status.
This past weekend, Djokovic took some time to thank his supporters and admit that he is preparing for the US Open as though he will be able to compete. “I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to each and every one of you for the numerous messages of love and support I have been receiving lately from all around the world.
Because I didn’t anticipate it, it feels really mind-blowing. I only wanted to express gratitude. People’s love and support for my tennis career and their desire for me to keep competing make me feel special.
While I wait to hear if I can travel to the US, I am preparing as if I will be able to compete. Cross your fingers!” Djokovic posted a message over the weekend on Instagram. On August 29, the US Open will begin, and it is unclear if Djokovic will be able to play.
