Unvaccinated Novak Djokovic finally welcomed back to US Open

Unvaccinated Novak Djokovic finally welcomed back to US Open

Djokovic is allowed to compete in this year's US Open after all. On May 11th, the latest coronavirus measures in the United States will expire, as announced by the U.S. government. Djokovic was not allowed to enter the country for a long time because he was not vaccinated. Even a letter to President Joe Biden could not change that. As a result, he missed several tournaments.

On Monday evening, the US government announced that travel restrictions related to the coronavirus will be lifted after May 11th. Currently, only vaccinated people are welcome in the US. This is excellent news for Djokovic, who is aiming for the record for most Grand Slams ever. The Serbian currently has 22, as many as Spanish player Rafael Nadal.

Last year, Djokovic missed the Australian Open, the US Open, and the Masters tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami because he refused to get vaccinated. He also had to skip the Masters tournaments this year. The 2023 US Open begins at the end of August. Djokovic has won the tournament three times (in 2011, 2015 and 2018) and has played in the finale nine times in total.
