The controversy surrounding Novak Djokovic’s entry to Australia to participate in the country’s Open may have an impact on the Serbian tennis player’s participation in the important Grand Slam tournaments. In 2021, Djokovic clinched the titles and easily entered the UK (Wimbledon), the US (US Open) and France (Roland Garros) without having to prove vaccination.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson commented on Novak Djokovic’s condition and called for everyone to be vaccinated, given the positive numbers that immunization provides in preventing the development of Covid-19. Johnson describes the vaccination as “fantastic.”
“It is important for the Australian authorities to make their own decisions. All I can say on the subject of Novak Djokovic – against whom I have of course played tennis – is that I believe in vaccination and I understand that it is fantastic,” the prime minister said.. he evades the Australian court’s decision to allow Serbs into the country .
Currently, visitors to the UK are allowed in upon presentation of a negative PCR test. After that, it is necessary to adhere to a 10-day quarantine, during which it will be necessary to take two more tests (on the second and on the eighth day). In London, a negative test on the fifth day clears the visitor from the remainder of the quarantine.
Boris Johnson argued: “I think that everyone should trust the vaccination programme, because it allows our country to be one of the best economies in Europe, and at the same time helps to protect everyone. (Immunization) has great advantages.”
Documents presented by tennis player Novak Djokovic’s defense, on Monday, before the Australian judiciary, reveal that the Serbian has not been vaccinated. Previously, it was not possible to confirm the absence of immunization because the Serb only refused to present the receipt. It is not yet known if there will be changes in the reception protocols for tennis players at Grand Slams from the explosion of Covid-19 cases with the discovery of a micron variant.
