US-OPEN 2022 | The US Open remains in danger for Djokovic if he continues to go unvaccinated due to US government regulations.

Novak Djokovic’s absence from the Australian Open was the first big sports news of the year. The decision of the Australian government not to allow the entry of people to the country who had not been vaccinated, with the subsequent trial and deportation of the Serb, raised a great controversy in public opinion. Djokovic, who was opting to lift his tenth title in Melbourne, saw not only how this possibility vanished but also Rafa Nadal win the trophy and breaking the equality between both and Roger Federer with 20 Grand Slams.

After playing Roland-Garros and a few weeks before Wimbledon, this problem is once again looming over world tennis ahead of the upcoming US Open 2022which takes place between August 23 and September 11 and which you can see on Eurosport. And it is that, a little more than two months before the start of the tournament, the United States government announced an update on the Covid-19 regulations that oblige most visitors to show proof of having been vaccinated, although it has recently withdrawn the obligation to show negative tests to enter the country. This situation would put Djokovic back at the epicenter of the controversy, since there is no record that he has changed his mind regarding the vaccine.

Russian and Belarusian players seem to have better luck. After playing Roland-Garros without problems and under a neutral flag, the Wimbledon organization decided to exclude them from the tournament. These tennis players will play the last Grand Slam of the season, as confirmed by the CEO and executive director of the United States Tennis Association (USTA), Lew Sherr, who indicated that he justified his decision due to the “concern to hold individual athletes accountable for the actions and decisions of their governments”.

“We recognize that each organization has had to deal with unique circumstances that affect their decisions,” the USTA added in a statement, also acknowledging that “According to our own circumstances, the USTA will allow all eligible playersregardless of their nationality, compete at the 2022 US Open”. In this way, the current champion of the men’s box, Daniil Medvedev will be able to defend his title at Flushing Meadows.
