Speaking during a Facebook chat Sunday, Novak Djokovic revealed he is not open to taken a vaccine.
“Personally, I am opposed to vaccination, and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel,” Djokovic stated.
Of course if the tour requires players to take a vaccine before return to play, what will Djokovic do?
“But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen?” he said. “I will have to make a decision. I have my own thoughts about the matter and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know.
“Hypothetically, if the season was to resume in July, August or September, though unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement straight after we are out of strict quarantine, and there is no vaccine yet.”
More than likely, players will have to take something to avoid further spread. If Djokovic doesn’t, than he runs the risk of not being allowed on tour.
Former No. 1 Marat Safin also chimed on a coronavirus vaccine, echoing a viral conspiracy theory.
“I think they are preparing people for ‘chipization’ [chip implants],” Safin told Sports.ru earlier this month.
“They’ve put the whole world [in lockdown] at home, so everything works,” he said.
“I think there are guys even bigger than world leaders who are the real masters of money, the masters of the world, they can turn things around easily.
“Call it a shadow government, call it whatever you like. I think we don’t even know they exist.
“The Rothschilds and the Rockefellers are well-known names, but someone else is behind them.”
