Novak Djokovic is awaiting confirmation that he will be permitted to travel to the United States to compete in the Masters 1000 tournament in Indian Wells and Miami, as was stated in a news conference a few days ago. Because to his immunization history, the Serbian sensation actually requires a special visa to enter the United States; keep in mind that the state of emergency will end on May 11th.

Given that he had previously been forced to miss two Grand Slams (the Australian Open and US Open) and the whole American Masters 1000 last year, the world number one paid a high price for his decision to forgo the coronavirus vaccination.

The 22-time Grand Slam champion is getting ready to compete in the ATP 500 in Dubai after winning his eleventh title at the Australian Open. After dethroning Carlos Alcaraz of Spain, the 35-year-old Belgrade native—who is still unbeaten in 2023—returned to the top of the world rankings.

John McEnroe, a tennis legend from the United States, thinks it would be foolish to prevent Djokovic from taking part in the Sunshine Double.

“I believe that him being prohibited from playing is a complete joke. It’s ridiculous that Novak Djokovic was expelled from Australia last year.

I’ve had my shots. I admire his decision not to do it. I would have done it, but that is a very different matter. He played in 2021, but at this time or even last year, he wasn’t allowed to arrive in 2022. Tell me how that works, please.

And he still isn’t able to play now? In my view, that is ludicrous. We’ll wait and see “said McEnroe. If he couldn’t play in Indian Wells, Miami, or any other US tournament, especially the US Open, McEnroe remarked, “it would be crazy.”

“With him and Rafa both having won 22 Grand Slams, it is apparent that this is a historic time for our sport. If you ask me, it’s really interesting, therefore it would be a shame, “Said he. This week, Novak Djokovic matched Steffi Graf’s record for the longest-ever No. 1 ranking in tennis. “I appreciate the congrats and am really happy to have broken another record—this time, Steffi Graf’s. I am fortunate to have a terrific team of people around me and my family’s unwavering support on this path, and I have [committed] everything in my life to this sport “says he.
