Srdjan Djokovic also shares the belief that vaccination status should be a personal matter as he has indicated that his son will likely skip the Australian Open. World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has refused to reveal his vaccination status and confirm his participation at the Australian Open.
"As far as vaccines and non-vaccines are concerned, it is the personal right of each of us whether we will be vaccinated or not. No one has the right to enter that intimacy, it is guaranteed by the constitution. Everyone has the right to decide on their health.
Will he publish it (if he is vaccinated or not), I don't think so. I don't know that decision either, and even if I did, I wouldn't share it with you. He has the right to decide as he wants,"- Srdjan Djokovic told TV Prva on Sunday.
Djokovic likely to skip the Australian Open
Srdjan underlined that "under these blackmails and conditions Novak probably won't play at the Australian Open." "It was embarrassing because of the announcement of those rulers in the provinces of Australia, who gave themselves the right to call out nine-time champion of Australia.
Whether he will appear there depends on them how they will position themselves. He wants to play because he is an athlete, and we would love that too. Under these blackmails and conditions, he probably won't play at AO. I wouldn't do that.
And he's my son, so you figure out for yourself if he is going to play or not." Srdjan also took a swipe at Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley. "What is a recognized vaccine, Mr. Craig? Russian vaccine is not recognized? According to our criteria, only Chinese and Russian are recognized.
The libertarian world has 90 percent of the world's population. For us, it is Russian and Chinese. Recognize them and we will vaccine, with pleasure."
