Discuss his vaccination status after the win WimbledonDjokovic said: “I am not vaccinated and do not intend to be vaccinated, so the only good news I can have is that they require the mandatory green vaccination card or whatever you call it to enter the United States, or an exemption , which I’m hoping to wait for, removes some good news from the US, because that’s where I’d love to go. If that doesn’t happen then I’ll have to see what the schedule looks like.“
Barring an exemption, Djokovic will also miss the Cincinnati Open and the US Open, the Serb also refuses to change his stance on vaccination despite the absence of many majors and the US Open could be next, starting August 29 and set to be the final Grand Slam of the season.
