Novak Djokovic will probably miss the US Open due to lack of vaccination – John Isner criticizes entry ban: “Complete madness”

Isner also added the hashtag #science to his tweet, with which the 37-year-old apparently wanted to allude to the fact that from a scientific point of view there are no reasons against entry.

The American responded to a question from a Twitter user who wanted to know if there were active professionals who wanted Djokovic to participate. US colleague Tennys Sandgren agreed with Isner.

Djokovic had already missed the Australian Open earlier in the year for the same reason. The Masters tournaments in Cincinnati and Montreal also take place in the run-up to the last Grand Slam tournament of the year without the Serbs.

Most recently, the 35-year-old also received public support from US politicians. Congresswoman Claudia Tenney said on Twitter that she had written a letter to the Secretary of State demanding that Djokovic be allowed to attend.

John McEnroe also jumped to the side of the 21-time Grand Slam winner. Even during Wimbledon, the tennis legend demanded: “I think politics is getting too involved here. The same thing happened in Australia at the beginning of the year. Let Novak Djokovic enter the USA and play the US Open.”

However, it is more than questionable at the moment whether US laws will change by the start of the US Open (live daily on discovery+ from August 29) or whether Djokovic will be allowed to enter the country with a special visa.
