Novak Djokovic, 35, won his 21st Grand Slam championship after beating Australia’s Nick Kyrgios in the 2022 Wimbledon final. This was Djokovic’s fourth consecutive Wimbledon championship and his seventh overall. Due to several difficulties related to his Covid-19 vaccination status, the Serb has been forced to withdraw from numerous events and potential Grand Slam competitions.
Last year’s runner-up Djokovic is currently banned from entering America as a COVID-19 vaccination is now required for all international visitors. Djokovic, on the other hand, has categorically said that he has no intention of getting vaccinated.

“The best tennis player in the world cannot compete because of politics” Claudia Tenney criticizes the US government for its vaccination guidelines
American Congresswoman Claudia Tenney has criticized the US government for its vaccination mandate and policies that appear to prevent Novak Djokovic from playing the US Open. She was joined by popular TV personality Rachel Campos-Duffy. While Tenney blamed politics for the situation, Duffy resorted to President Joe Biden.
Rachel tweeted, “That’s the dumbest thing ever! Can someone wake sleepy Joe from his nap and tell him the pandemic is over? Our government keeps working for #BigPharma?”
Tenney also took to Twitter to express her support for Djokovic. That is absolutely reprehensible. @DjokerNole is the world’s top tennis player, playing at the ultra-elite level, is unable to compete in a premier sporting event in the United States due to political reasons.
The United States recently ruled that foreigners no longer need to present negative test results to enter the country, but must provide proof of a double dose of the coronavirus vaccine. As a result, Novak Djokovic will surely be forced to miss the North American swing as well as the US Open.
