Novak Djokovic spent his weekend at a Croatian island and there he met former Croatian tennis player Ivo Karlovic. After winning Wimbledon, Djokovic returned to home and he has been resting since. Since Djokovic won't be allowed to compete at the Montreal Masters because of his vaccination status, he has been using his time off to get some rest and recharge his batteries for when he returns to the court.
"Couple of legends gathered around Top G," Karlovic captioned his Instagram post.
Djokovic won't try to force his way into the United States
Three days after winning Wimbledon, Djokovic launched tennis courts at the Archeological Park in Bosnia.
There, Djokovic addresses those who claim he tried to enter Australia earlier this year illegaly. “People still think I forced my way to Australia and tried to come in with no paper, permission or exemption – it is not true," Djokovic underlined.
"That was proven on the court case, so I would never go into a country where I didn’t have permission to travel. I would love to come back to Australia. I love Australia, I had my best Grand Slam results in that country.
Hopefully I can be there in January because I want to be there, and I also want to be in New York. I want to be in America and everywhere I can possibly play”. Also, Djokovic noted he will come to the United States only if he is given the green light to come.
“I am a professional tennis player, I don’t go into politics or anything else because that doesn’t interest me,” he said. “I have my stance and I am a proponent for freedom to choose what is best for you.
I respect everything and everybody, and I expect people to at least respect my decision. If I have permission, I’ll be there. If I don’t, I won’t be there – it’s not the end of the world”.
