“Let Novak Djokovic into the US,” urged John McEnroe.
Novak Djokovic is still awaiting word on his ability to go to the United States and compete in the Masters 1000 tournament in Indian Wells and Miami. John McEnroe, a tennis legend from the United States, thinks it would be foolish to prevent Djokovic from taking part in the Sunshine Double.
McEnroe looked at: “I believe it would be insane to deny Novak Djokovic entry to the United States. I received a coronavirus vaccination, and I have always supported the vaccine, but I understand individuals who feel differently.
I already thought it was absurd that Australia decided to kick him out last year. It seems absurd to me that Nole was permitted to play in the United States in 2021 but was denied entry in 2022. It would be ridiculous if he couldn’t compete in the US Open, Indian Wells, Miami Masters 1000, or any other competition.
I sincerely hope that a solution to this issue be found soon.” Last week, during the ATP in Buenos Aires, Francisco Cerundolo praised Djokovic in a press conference: “I have the utmost regard for him and believe that tennis is better off because of how competitive it is now.
We must continue to put up our best effort if we hope to defeat him. He won the Australian Open with ease despite being 35.”
Can Novak Djokovic compete in Miami and Indian Wells?
Considering that the state of emergency will end on May 11th, the Serbian champion need a special authorization to enter the United States due to his vaccination status.
Given that he previously had to miss two Grand Slams (the Australian Open and US Open) and the entire 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, who won his eleventh crown at the Australian Open, is getting ready to return to the court at the ATP 500 in Dubai. 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.
