Novak Djokovic, fifth in the world ranking, confirmed his position not to be vaccinated against the coronavirus, so if this does not allow him to enter the United States next March to play two tournaments, he said, he will accept it.

The US authorities extended the requirement of vaccination against Covid-19 to international visitors, with which the former number 1 in the world will probably miss the tournaments Indian Wells and the Miami Open.

“When it is official we will talk about this. I hope I can play, but if I can’t go, I can’t go.”insisted the winner of 21 Grand Slams, who a year ago was deported from Australia and could not play the australian open for not being properly vaccinated against coronavirus.

Djokovic also missed the US Open of 2022 for refusing to be vaccinated, he fell to fifth place in the ATP ranking and he risks losing up to 2,000 points in the standings if he can’t play in Indian Wells and Miami.
