Novak Djokovic Prepared To Miss More Grand Slam Events
For now, Novak Djokovic is prepared to skip more Grand Slam tournaments and miss more chances at history.
In a new interview, Djokovic told the BBC that he’s still not vaccinated and ready to accept the fact he might not be allowed to enter future events like the French Open, Wimbledon and others.
While he might someday get the vaccine, right now he’s against getting it because, as he says, “the principles of decision making on my body are more important than any title or anything else. I’m trying to be in tune with my body as much as I possibly can.”
He again denied any underhandedness in that positive COVID result in December, which came just in time to get cleared to go to Australia. But perhaps more will come (or not come) from the legal side.
Djokovic will be allowed to play in Dubai next week, perhaps Monte Carlo and likely Wimbledon where the tournament will follow government guidelines which are lax. The French Open is touch-and-go as are some of the other events including the US Open. But there are months to ago, a lot can change.
I give Djokovic credit, though, with all that’s at stake, he’s not backing down or giving in. Just like on the tennis court. At the end of the day, it is his body, his choice. he’s right. The downside is then he has to suffer the consequences, and it sounds like he’s at peace with that, as well.
