Novak Djokovic Withdraws From The US Open

by Staff | August 25th, 2022, 11:40 am

There’s no US Open this year for Novak Djokovic. The Serb is out of the US Open after being unable to be granted entry into the U.S.A.

“Sadly, I will not be able to travel to NY this time for US Open. Thank you #NoleFam for your messages of love and support. ❤️ Good luck to my fellow players! I’ll keep in good shape and positive spirit and wait for an opportunity to compete again. 💪🏼 See you soon tennis world! 👋🏼” Djokovic tweeted.

The US Open later released a statement:
“Novak is a great champion and it is very unfortunate that he will be unable to compete at the 2022 US Open, as he is unable to enter the country due to the federal government’s vaccination policy for non-U.S.citizens. We look forward to welcoming Novak back at the 2023 US Open,” said Stacey Allaster, US Open Tournament Director.

Djokovic will miss both hardcourt Slams this year and will stay at 21 Slams. And it’s the first time he’ll miss the US Open since 2017. He is next expected to be on court next month at Davis Cup and Laver Cup.

He may or may not be able to play the Australian Open.

My comment is on the Serena v Raducanu thread.
I would just like to reiterate good riddance to bad rubbish!
Zed are you listening? Lol

Good on Nole for not bending over, why would you travel to one of the last remaining countries in developed world that segregates between vaccinated and unvaccinated people, ironically the country with probably one of lowest Covid vaccination rate in developed world?!

This is how much Nole was worried whether he’ll be allowed to enter USA, yesterday in Belgrade watching Serbia vs Greece in Belgrade Arena, with family, sitting next to the most successful European coach in the history, Željko Obradović, two GOATs:

…and few days traveling to Slovenia to watch Slovenia vs Serbia and chatting with Luka Dončić:

You really can see how much he was “worried” whether he will be allowed to play in monkeypox capital of the world, NY😉

^^^ should say:

“…. few days ago travelling to Slovenia…”
