AUS Open 2022: Novak Djokovic, the world’s number one tennis player, once again this week kept silent about his Kovid Vaccination status. Djokovic has made it clear that this is his personal matter and he will not share this information with anyone. At the same time, he has said that he has not made any decision about whether he will go to defend his title at the Australian Open next year or not. Let us tell you that at present very strict Kovid-19 protocols are in force in Australia. Due to this, there was a cloud of doubt on England’s tour of Australia for the Ashes for a long time. However, as far as the Australia Open is concerned, the organizers of the tournament have not yet taken a final decision regarding the Kovid-19 protocol here.
The brainstorming process is still going on regarding this. If Djokovic does not take part in the first Grand Slam of the year here due to stringent restrictions, then it will be a big blow for the organisers. Also, this will be a big blow for Djokovic as he would like to become the player to win the most Grand Slams as soon as possible. At present, Djokovic is equal to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at 20-20 Grand Slams.
During a media briefing, the Serbian tennis star said, “I do not want to say anything about my vaccination status. This is my personal matter, it has nothing to do with the Grand Slam. The virus has nothing to do with that.” What is your ranking in tennis or how many Grand Slams have you won. You have to get this vaccine to keep yourself and others safe.” Let us tell you that in January next year, this first Grand Slam of the year will start at Melbourne Park. The head of Victoria State, Daniel Andrews, has already opposed the participation of non-vaccinated athletes in the tournament.
Serbian tennis star will take a decision in the next few days
Nine-time Australian Open winner Djokovic also said, “I want to go to Australia to play the Grand Slam. This has been the most successful event of my career. Also, I love the game of tennis very much. Although I am still there for Kovid. There is no information about -19 protocol. Once all this situation is clear, then only I will decide in the next few days whether I will play in this tournament next year or not.
Let us tell you that this year, Djokovic had captured all three Grand Slams of the year and he also had a chance to register his name in history by completing the career Grand Slam. However, he missed out on making this record in the last Grand Slam US Open of the year. Djokovic lost to Daniil Medvedev of Russia in the final of the US Open.
