“If I don’t have permission, don’t go. It’s not the end of the world either,” he said, somewhat resignedly, Novak Djokovicdue to the impossibility of entering USA to play the US Open, the fourth Grand Slam of the season, as he was not vaccinated. However, circumstances have changed. In fact, D.Jokovic will be able to enter the United States without being vaccinated and his participation in New York depends on the authorization of the tournament.
Thursday the CDC, the body that governs sanitary measures in the United States, announced the end of many of the COVID restrictions. The main one is that as of today Friday the vaccinated will be treated in the same way as the unvaccinated.
This opens a path through which the Serbian tennis player, number 5 in the world and winner of Wimbledon, you can access to play the US Open. In fact, the Serbian is at the waiting for the organization of the Great American to confirm its participation. He is enrolled.
The Serbian never gave up the chance to compete in New York. In fact, he has been training in the same way as if he knew for sure that she was going to play him. There are just over two weeks left for the start of the tournament and there may not be time to complete all the bureaucratic paperwork (visas, etc.) so that Nole can be there, but for the first time in weeks, he has a real chance of fighting for the Grand Slam.
