Serbian tennis superstar Novak Djokovic visited the Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun over the weekend in Visoko. Djokovic, a 20-time Grand Slam champion, goes to Visoko whenever he has time, as it is the place he likes to go to recharge his batteries.
Djokovic had a bit of a tough week as he pulled out of the Indian Wells Masters and the Miami Masters at the last moment. Djokovic, who remains unvaccinated against COVID-19, was denied entry into the United States due to his vaccination status.
"Even though he was automatically included in the @BNPPARIBASOPEN and @MiamiOpen draw, I knew it was unlikely that he would be able to travel. The CDC has confirmed that the regulations are not going to change, so I will not be able to play in the United States.
Good luck to those who play in these big tournaments," Djokovic wrote on Twitter. Osmanagic, founder of the "Bosnian Pyramid of the Sun", defended Djokovic during the Australian visa debacle. In January, Osmanagic called Djokovic a "symbol of freedom" and said it was only a matter of time before people realized that the Serb's values ââwere true.
"All these politicians want to make a name for themselves through Novak. For two years they have harassed the population with draconian measures, they have abolished all human rights and freedoms, and then they have decided to present Djokovic as the main culprit of everything.
Typical propaganda on how to divert attention from the main culprit."
Opelka praises Nole Djokovic
Reilly Opelka bestowed high praise on Novak Djokovic in a recent interview, remarking that the World No. 2 is a "man of principle" for his willingness to stand up for other players even when it was not in his best interest to do so.
"The fact that [Novak Djokovic] is still willing to fight for other players is [remarkable]. It is clearly out of his best interest to do so. He really is a man of principle and we have to respect that. One thing you can never call him is a hypocrite," Opelka said.
"He says what he believes in. I really enjoy spending time with him when I have [got the opportunity to] chat with him. I respect him for a lot of reasons." Opelka also hailed the character displayed by the 20-time Grand Slam champion for sticking to his principles even when the public perception turned against him.
"[He] does have the right intentions when it comes to vaccinations, there's no doubt about it. He's more than okay from a financial standpoint," Opelka said. "His grand kids and his great kids are going to be just fine in terms of finances and I think that's what shows a lot about his character."
