“Young people must transmit the virus”

Stefanos Tsitsipas (ATP 3) strongly opposes the compulsory vaccination of players.

Stefanos Tsitsipas does not want to be vaccinated.


Like everywhere else, the world of tennis is torn between the pros and the anti-vaccines. If Andy Murray campaigns for compulsory vaccination, Stefanos Tsitsipas is clearly one of the opponents of the bite. And the Greek intends to make his opinion heard on this sensitive subject.

“We all have the right to do what we think is right, no one can force me to get the vaccine. I’m under 25 and I don’t think the vaccine has been tested enough. It’s a good one. thing that young people pass the virus on because we are going to build immunity. The vaccine has negative side effects, I know people who have had them. I have no problem making my position understood because I see no reason why someone my age should be vaccinated. I think it should only have been given to elderly people. We are not sure about the effects that the vaccine can have in the long term, “he said. he explained to his country’s media.

Before adding: “In the ATP circuit nobody demanded that we be vaccinated, so I don’t understand why all the fuss because I was not vaccinated. I didn’t say anything strange, everyone has his point of view. If we were all diplomats and couldn’t say what we really think, why are we having press conferences? The vaccine doesn’t give me any guarantees at the moment, I want to wait until the moment when it offers more advantages than disadvantages. “

Stefanos Tsitsipas is not the only top-10 player to oppose vaccination. Indeed, Novak Djokovic (ATP 1) is also reluctant to the idea of ​​making vaccination compulsory for all players on the circuit.
