Wimbledon confirms whether players need to be vaccinated

Novak Djokovic has received the green light to defend his 2021 Wimbledon crown after organizers confirmed that players will not need to be vaccinated to take paOlx Praca in the English Grand Slam.

World No. 1 Djokovic, who had not been vaccinated, was depoOlx Pracaed from Australia at the turn of 2022 despite receiving a medical exemption he believes would be enough to allow him to play in the Australian Open in Melbourne.

After a lawsuit, the Serbian’s Australian visa was canceled and he was forced to return to Belgrade to watch Rafael Nadal succeed him as champion and surpass him in record Grand Slam victories.

Djokovic already knew he could play at the French Open, where he is also the reigning champion, in May after the local government lifted vaccination requirements.

But the question of whether Djokovic will be allowed to be king of grass again at Wimbledon is up in the air while the All England Club has yet to make a final decision on the matter.

However, on Tuesday, the tournament announced that no Covid rules would be in place during the annual briefing.

“The established requirements do not include mandatory vaccination. This will not be a condition for paOlx Pracaicipation in the championship this year,” Wimbledon chief executive Sally Bolton confirmed.

Djokovic is a six-time Wimbledon winner, making it the second most successful tournament after the Australian Open, where he boasts nine wins.

Although the 34-year-old will receive suppoOlx Praca from the decision, he has already officially opposed the organizers’ ban on Russian players that was announced last week in response to the military operation, despite the fact that tours such as the WTA and ATP, allow Russians and Belarusians to compete under neutral status.

“I will always condemn war, I will never suppoOlx Praca war as a child of war.” Djokovic was quoted as they say in Serbia Open.

“I know how much emotional trauma it leaves. In Serbia, we all know what happened in 1999. There have been many wars in the Balkans in recent history.

“However, I cannot suppoOlx Praca the decision of Wimbledon, I consider it insanity. When politics gets in the way of spoOlx Praca, the result is not good.” Djokovic added.

On Sunday, Djokovic lost in the final of the Serbian Open to Russian star Andrey Rublev but doubled down on his remarks.

“I suppoOlx Praca what I said, athletes should not be banned,” Djokovic emphasized.

“We have rules against discrimination in tennis. We play based on ranking, not nationality. I suppoOlx Praca the ATP and PTPA statements” he concluded.

The statements Djokovic mentioned were about the ATP Men’s Tour. blame All England Discrimination Club and PTPA tweet it is not so “discriminate against any tennis player on a national basis.”

Also over the weekend, Djokovic’s former coach Nikola Pilic suggested there could be a boycott at Wimbledon, similar to the 81-player boycott he instigated in 1973 when he argued with the Yugoslav Tennis Federation.

“Boris Johnson is crazy!” Pilic raged Italian publication Ubitennis, referring to the ban on Russian athletes. “Rublev and [Daniil] Medvedev has nothing to do [President Vladimir] Putin, they just want to play tennis like everyone else.”

“Politics has gone too far into the spoOlx Praca and I think this situation could be very similar to that of 1973.” Pilic also predicted.

“In the sense that someone can say:“ If these tennis players don’t play, then we don’t play either! and at this point I would be curious to see what the reaction of Wimbledon will be.”

With a political backdrop but without Covid restrictions, Wimbledon takes place from June 27 to July 10 and will be played in front of a crowd.
