Recently emphasized Dr. Reiner on a podcast show that as an athlete followed by millions, Djokovic failed to set a good example for others. He said “When I look at athletes, I look at them as people who somehow come out in the public eye and try to represent the best of us. When kids go to the US Open and cheer for a player. I’m looking for a player to show me something that will lead me to reach higher levels in my life.

He went on to say that it seemed like Djokovic didn’t care about anyone but himself. He added “When I look at someone like Djokovic, someone who has made hundreds of millions of dollars playing tennis, who has lived this incredibly happy life, I see him as a kind of symbol of public responsibility. Despite the fact that I think he should be playing in the United States, I think he totally failed to do so during the darkest point of this pandemic, when he really should have been considered a role model. What he actually did was selfishness, it was like that last winter, pure selfishness.”

dr Reiner thinks Djokovic should do the vaccination for his own safety reasons. He even said “Look I think it’s a bad attitude for Djokovic not to get vaccinated, I think it’s a bad example. I still believe he should be vaccinated for his own protection and I think his concerns about the safety of vaccines are unfounded. The vaccines are exceptionally safe and the risk to an athlete’s health is far greater from the virus itself than any potential vaccine.
