Novak Djokovic made only one official appearance this year
For the same reason, Djokovic was unable to compete in the Indian Wells and Miami Open. Accepted corona virus is one of the conditions for initiating vaccine release. As a result of the lack of start-ups, Serbia also lost its leading position in the world ATP rankings.
This year Novak Djokovic played only one match. It took place in Dubai in February. Local law does not require a vaccine to obtain the right to compete. There Serbia advanced to the quarterfinals. On Tuesday, the named tennis player will start competing in the next match, this time in Monte Carlo. This season, he will still be appearing in courts in Madrid, Rome and Roland Corros.
“You must be the king of nonsense”
Former tennis player and head of the ATP lists Marcelo Rios spoke about the whole scandal surrounding Novak Djokovic. A Chilean man in the “La Tercera” newspaper condemned the Serbian attitude. “I do not know why Djokovic did not want to be vaccinated, but if you try to be the best in history and leave the race because of the vaccine, you must be the king of nonsense,” Rios said. The Serbian behavior was arrogant.
