After winning his 21st Slam at Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic may be forced to sit out the US Open due to the country’s entry rules. Due to current regulations imposed by the US government, which require travelers to present a full course of vaccinations at the border, the Serbian could not make it to New York to compete at the US Open.
Djokovic took to his Instagram account to thank his followers for their support in recent weeks. The Serbian is continuing to train in the hope that something will change before the tournament begins. “I just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone how grateful I am to see so many messages of support and love from all over the world these days.
It’s special that people have been so loving and supportive of my tennis career and want to continue competing. I am preparing as if I am allowed to compete, while I wait to find out if I will be allowed to travel to the United States.
Djokovic has received support from several American personalities. The last woman to express her dismay at the situation was US Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, who was a member of the New York State House of Representatives from 2017 to 2019.
“I wrote a letter to the Secretary of State urging him to let you play the US Open. I’m trying to get even more support from Congress. I won’t stop, don’t worry. Let Novak play! Claudia Tenney addressed Djokovic directly on Twitter.
John McEnroe also supported Djokovic. The former US champion would like to see the Serb on court at the upcoming US Open.
New details about Noel Djokovic
Recently Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic has received more praise for his participation in the US Open, this time from Texas state representative Louie Gohmert.
Speaking to The Daily Caller, the politician expressed his desire to play Novak Djokovic in the final Grand Slam of the year. “Novak Djokovic overcame the dangers of war and starvation to become one of the top tennis players in the world, if not the top player,” Gohmert said.
He lambasted the Biden administration for its “cold, callous, callous, scientifically ignorant mentality.” Yet, it now appears that he will not be able to overcome the cold, callous, callous, scientifically oblivious mentality of the Biden administration to compete in the 2022 US Open,” Gohmert added.
