According to one in all Novak Djokovic’s biographers, the Serbian world n°1 would have finally chosen to be vaccinated. What he refused till then and which price him his participation within the Australian Open, a match on the finish of which Nadal went to search this document which he covets a lot.
The information shouldn’t delight probably the most zealous amongst his early followers. And is not going to essentially delight his father, Srdan, both, he who had made him a martyr of freedom on this post-Covid world the place the non-vaccinated would be oppressed. Reluctant to any injunction to be vaccinated, Novak Djokovic would have finally taken the plunge, going towards his personal convictions on the topic. This was indicated by his biographer, Daniel Müksch, on the event of a tv program wherein he participated, on Servus TV.
“From what I heard from his entourage, I believe he’s getting vaccinated, he insinuated. Maybe the ultimate in Australia contributed to it. Maybe the 21 Grand Slams of Rafa Nadal push him to do it.”
Novak Djokovic faces a double problem, with the return to the fore of Nadal. The Spaniard, by winning the Australian Open, doubled the number of Grand Slam titles won in his career, becoming the first player to reach 21 crowns. However, if the Spaniard doesn’t care much about this record – that’s what he claims in any case, we don’t have to take his word for it – Djokovic is obsessed with this quest.
In a lifeless finish
Unfortunately for the world No. 1 (maybe not for lengthy…), his vaccination standing prevents him from taking part in most tournaments, particularly a very powerful ones, foremost amongst that are the 4 Grand Slam tournaments . And nobody appears prepared to give him the slightest favor, no extra Wimbledon and the US Open than Roland-Garros.
Djokovic returned to Belgrade on January 17 after being expelled from Melbourne, the place he hoped to play the Australian Open with the ambition of triumphing there for the tenth time. At the tip of a protracted politico-legal imbroglio, the unvaccinated star failed to persuade the Australian justice system to settle for his attraction towards the cancellation of his visa by the Australian authorities and had to depart the nation.
At an deadlock due to his vaccination standing, and barring a sudden collapse of the epidemic in all places on the planet within the coming months – an unlikely state of affairs – Novak Djokovic has no selection however to vaccinate. And to imitate 97% of the gamers who make up the highest 100, a few of whom have been greater than reluctant like him, earlier than finally resolving to achieve this. It might be that the Serb additionally takes this path.
