‘Novak Djokovic could showcase his…’, says expert

The 142nd US Open will be held from August 29 to September 11 and will award the last Grand Slam title in 2022. The last edition of the US event was won by Daniil Medvedev, who won his first Major playing a near-perfect tournament. The Russian, who could not participate in Wimbledon due to a ban imposed by those responsible for the All England Club, prevented Novak Djokovic from completing the Grand Slam and won the final in three sets. If Medvedev’s presence in Flushing Meadows is certain, there are many doubts about the Serbian champion. The Belgrader, at a press conference in Wimbledon, reiterated his no to the vaccine and explained that he will wait for instructions from the US government. Taking into account the regulations in force in the United States, which requires travelers to present a complete vaccination cycle at the border, Djokovic could not participate in the American Masters 1000 and, above all, arrive in New York before the US Open. Despite this, the Serbian decided to enter the tournament and wait until the last moment in the hope that the rules for entering the country would change. The USTA has made it known that the tournament will not impose any limits on unvaccinated players, but will respect the government’s position on the entry of foreigners into the United States. However, the obstacles in Alexander Zverev’s path to the US Open are physical in nature. The German underwent a tough ankle operation – the tests confirmed the injury to the three lateral ankle ligaments – after the injury suffered during the semifinal against Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Zverev’s goal is to progress properly and arrive at the US Open in the best possible condition, but it will all depend on the long rehabilitation process and how he feels. Nadal, for his part, has overcome the abdominal problem that forced him to withdraw from the Wimbledon tournament before the semifinal against Nick Kyrgios.

Nole Djokovic has redeemed himself

Ramesh Takur has split a long forum on the Novak Djokovic’s case, and the arguments really deserve to be studied closely. According to him, the Serb must participate in the US Open. He also returns to the Australian episode by giving a different reading of the events than that proposed at the time of the facts by the media and the institutions of the country of Nick Kyrgios. Watch out, it’s moving. “Djokovic had to be kept away from Australia not because he could infect other people, but because he is a visible reminder of vaccine failure. The government was terrified that a twice-infected, but unvaccinated Djokovic could showcase his athletic prowess on the pitch for a record-breaking 21st Major triumph and end the steady escalation of the COVID terror.”
