In light of the next significant positions on the Tour, Novak Djokovic‘s fate appears to have been determined at this time. Due to the current anti-Covid laws in effect in the United States of America, the Serbian is already certain that he will not be able to compete in the Montreal Master 1000 and will soon be obliged to issue a final forfeit to the Cincinnati tournament as well as the US Open Championships.
The Belgrade native’s decision to forego vaccinations forced him to entirely change his training regimen and lose control of his fate. The athlete had to deal with a number of challenging circumstances, including the Australian Open and an illness he contracted upon his return.
Approximately three months had passed since the season’s opening Grand Slam (which he ultimately did not play), and nothing had been resolved or put behind him. The 35-year-old actually faces greater risks with no relief in sight.
Given the victory at Wimbledon, current possibilities, speaking about events of a particular level, indicate that he will only be able to participate in a few European tournaments prior to the Nitto Atp Finals, for which he will only be qualified if he finishes among the top 20 spots in the Race ranking.
The US Open and Djokovic are getting farther and farther away.
In the near future, it seems improbable that Joe Biden’s administration in the US will entirely alter the immigration laws, granting entry to non-immunized foreigners in this particular instance.
As a result, Nole will be unable to compete in the tournament at Flushing Meadows and will not be able to defend the 1200 points he won in the 2021 edition, in which he lost only in the final to the Russian Daniil Medvedev and was unable to complete the Calendar Grand Slam.
Djokovic would drop to seventh place in the ATP rankings if the story did not result in exciting news; however, it must be taken into account how many tennis players will be able to gain ground in the three events scheduled between August and September, in addition to losing the rest.
The Serbian is hoping that players like Jannik Sinner, Andrey Rublev, Matteo Berrettini, and others won’t achieve spectacular achievements until the US Open and won’t go over his allotted number of points after the last Grand Slam.
The Serb’s withdrawal from the top 10 is quite possible (but not guaranteed), and he will then need to make up for it in the competitions in which he can compete without incident.
