Governor of Florida Rob DeSantis recently stated at a news conference that it was a grave error to bar Novak Djokovic from traveling to the US to compete in the 2022 US Open. As DeSantis clarified: “Some of the actions done over the past two years to combat COVID were pointless and foolish.
The fact that Djokovic was denied entry to the US Open due to his vaccination status is absurd in my opinion. He has already had COVID twice, and we are still paying the price for it now.
It’s an odd and stupid rule, in my opinion “Nole still stands a very good chance of participating in the ATP Finals in Turin despite having won Wimbledon for the seventh time in her career. Clay Travis, a well-known radio presenter, defended the Serbian as well: “Djokovic has renounced two Grand Slams this year in order to uphold his moral standards.
He has once more proven to be a brave and dependable man.”
Nole out of New York, a topic that continues to spark discussion
Due to his inability to enter the United States, the former world number one was forced to forfeit the final major of the year.
The CDC has equalized internal treatment between those who have received vaccinations and those who have not, but the laws at the border have not yet been altered. Given that he was forced to skip the Australian Open at the beginning of the year due to the same reason, the Serbian champion paid a very steep price for his decision not to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Even though it meant that Rafael Nadal surpassed him in the all-time Grand Slam rankings, the player taught by Goran Ivanisevic remained true to his beliefs. The 35-year-old Belgrade native improved his season by winning Wimbledon for the eighth tournament in his career after a few trying months. Thus, Nole has passed his hero Pete Sampras and climbed to 21 Majors, one Grand Slam ahead of Rafa.
