2022 is not going well for Novak Djokovic. The former world number one was unable to compete in the Australian Open due to a known vaccination problem, as well as undergoing a bureaucratic and media process that damaged his image.
The Serbian champion was hoping to make up for himself at Roland Garros, as he was considered his favourite, especially after the victory in Rome without losing a single set. After walking the first week, his run unfortunately ended in the quarter-finals against eternal rival Rafael Nadal.
The Spaniard then raised himself to 22 majors, and extended to Federer and Djokovic. The 35-year-old from Belgrade will necessarily have to force himself at Wimbledon to close the gap, given that he will not be able to go to New York to compete in the US Open.
According to the latest rumors, the United States has no intention of “relaxing” the health measures and will not disqualify the 20-time Grand Slam champion. To GB News’ microphones, Nigel Farage broke a bayonet in Noll’s favour.
Farage opens up about Djokovic
“The US Open has decided that players from Russia and Belarus can play in the US Open, but Novak Djokovic cannot play in the US Open because he did not get the vaccine,” Farage said.
“This is crazy. There are absolutely no health reasons to support this.” He added that the move was more about “control” rather than health concerns. “In fact, I have to say I have argued very strongly here with the doctors about whether I should get the booster medication,” Farage said.
“I concluded in the end, I shouldn’t get the booster and the reasons. Very simple, whether you get vaccinated or not, you can still catch Covid. Whether you get vaccinated or not, you can still spread Covid.
The argument for getting vaccinated, if you did, would be less sick. But keep in mind that Novak Djokovic is one of the healthiest 35-year-olds living in the world today.”
There is absolutely no way to place any burden whatsoever on the US authorities. This isn’t about health, it’s about control. Travis believes the last major tournament of the year should include the three-time champion in the draw.
According to Travis, the likes of basketball player Kyrie Irving (including Djokovic), who have refused to vaccinate, will be looking smarter by the day. Speaking to FOX News, he said, “It’s a joke. So, I think this will end up playing Djokovic.”
