Novak Djokovic, who already had the Wimbledon trophy in his hands, said that he would rest for two weeks. Goran Ivanisevic was his coach. "Now my vacation starts, I don’t know how it will last," he said. It is true that Novak Djokovic's schedule is still unknown. Only the Serb knows that he will be able play in September's Laver Cup, London, and that he can attend the ATP Finals at Turin. As long as he doesn't fall out of the top 20, he can still play in the Laver Cup in London and the Masters Cup in Turin. Grand Slam winners will be guaranteed a place in this tournament as long they are in the top 20.
Djokovic's problem is that the tournament he wants to play, the one marked in red due to the possibility to add 22 Grand Slams to his calendar, the US Open is undetermined or impossible. The seven-time Wimbledon champion said, "I hope they give us some good news about US Open." "Because that's what I want. He said, "The only thing I hope is that they either remove the requirement to get vaccinated or give me an exemption."
It is not an option to get vaccinated. It was obvious at the start of the tournament. When asked if she was certain she wouldn't go through the puncture, she replied with a smile and a "yes". Now, she has publicly confessed that she is not vaccinated. This shuts down the United States' doors to unvaccinated persons. Ivanisevic thought, "Maybe Biden's mind will change,"
It is true that due to the increase in covid cases around the world, it appears difficult for legislation changes to be made in less than a month. What remains is for Flushing Meadows to start on August 29th to September 11th. Novak will be stunning if he goes to the United States. What can we do if he doesn’t go? It's another tournament. We'll see. There are many crazy things happening around the world. Every day, something is changing. "We will see what will occur," Ivanisevic said.
His absence if confirmed will mark the second Grand Slam that he has missed since January, when he was deported from Australia. After a difficult few months in Melbourne, he would be signing a quarterfinal at Roland Garros as well as victory at Wimbledon.
"I needed to give the Australian storm time to clear. He wasn't mentally or physically healthy. I felt a lot of pressure in Dubai, my first tournament of this year. I was patient and believed that I would reach the level I desired at some point, "said the Serb who may not have survived the Australia saga against Djokovic.
The Australian Government has to issue a permit for the Serb to enter Australia, as his visa was revoked in January. This means that he cannot participate in the Australian Open. This obstacle is unlikely to be resolved unless the law changes.
This paradigm means that the race for the title of the greatest tennis player in history will be postponed to Roland Garros 2023. Rafa Nadal will increase his income, while Roger Federer will return to the circuit with two margin tournaments.
