world #2 Novak Djokovic has endured a lot of criticism for choosing not to remain vaccinated against Covid-19 and it is his right to do so as he remains free to choose whether or not to be vaccinated. While many countries accept people’s choice not to get vaccinated, Australia had made vaccination mandatory for all foreign players wishing to enter the country Australian Open 2022.
Despite Novak having received a Therapeutic Use Exemption from the committee set up by the government in Australia, Novak’s visa was canceled upon his arrival in Melbourne and two court battles ensued over the next 10 days, with Djokovic winning the first but winning the second was expelled from the country on the eve of his first-round match at the Grand Slam and also received a three-year travel ban from Australia.
However, Novak’s decision drew a lot of criticism of him, not only from viewers but also from some of his peers, who urged the Serb to get vaccinated and put this humiliation behind him. However, Novak has made it clear that unless he is retired, he will remain unvaccinated and will not consider vaccination until after retirement.
Speaking of which, Novak’s former spiritual advisor Pepe Imaz who guided Novak through spirituality a few years ago and has a good understanding of the player’s personality, gave his own insights into the whole thing and also the kind of person Novak is.
“As I feel and observe, everything he has done has been done with the best intention and desire to help and contribute from the status that he has in the world of tennis. He did it from the heart. Some things were more or less correct. He’s human and he’s learning. For some he was wrong and he lived and received criticism with acceptance and learning. He coped and digested them better that way.
“He recognized the right of many people to speak their minds, even if sometimes we do it too lightly. The information is very diffuse and not very close to reality. Nevertheless, people still dare to express their opinions. Despite this, I repeat that everything he did was done out of a desire to help, not out of interest. Everything he created he gave to people in need.” said Pepe in his interview with the Spanish newspaper Diary AS.
