After the ban on Russians and Belarusians from participating in Wimbledon, due to the war in Ukraine, Novak Djokovic should miss the US Open. In question, his refusal to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus. The Serb does not meet the health conditions required to enter American territory, while the tournament does not require a complete vaccination schedule for players.
Even if his withdrawal is not yet official, a glaring clue further confirms the thesis of his absence, he who has won the tournament three times. The US Open posted a promotional poster on social media on Monday with the faces of four female players and four players: Emma Raducanu, Serena Williams, Iga Świątek, Naomi Osaka, Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz, Nick Kyrgios and Daniil Medvedev.
If the Serb’s package is confirmed, he could plummet in the ATP rankings with the loss of his points earned last season. He had failed in the final against the Russian Daniil Medvedev.
