Novak Djokovic, the world’s number one men’s tennis player, will be able to compete in the US Open this year because the US government has announced it will no longer require Covid-19 vaccinations.
Djokovic has been one of the most well-known athletes who have not received a Covid-19 vaccine, and this caused him to miss the US Open last year. But now, he can compete and show off his skills once again.
This change is coming next week, and it means that international travelers will no longer be required to get a Covid-19 vaccine before entering the US.
Earlier this year, Djokovic was not able to compete in Indian Wells and Miami because of his vaccine status, and he was also not allowed to enter Australia for the Australian Open. He was deported from the country because he had not received the Covid-19 vaccine. Djokovic has even said he would skip Grand Slams rather than get a Covid-19 shot.
But now, he will be able to participate in the US Open, where he has already won three times before. We can’t wait to see him in action and wish him the best of luck!
