The U.S. has extended the vaccination requirements for all non-citizens through April 10, it was announced Tuesday.
That means Novak Djokovic, who is unvaccinated, will not be allowed to enter the U.S. to play either Indian Wells or Miami.
Last year, he missed Indian Wells, Miami, Cincinnati and the US Open. That’s 5,000 ATP ranking points alone. And he’ll lose out on at least 2,000 more this year.
The current U.S. vaccination mandate was due to expire on Sunday but has now been extended. After Australia and Canada changed requirements, America is one of the few countries left on the tennis map barring unvaccinated non-residents.
Djokovic made a failed bid to get into the U.S. last summer for the US Open. He’ll likely try again, perhaps with the help of his PTPA.
