Novak Djokovic spent his weekend on a Croatian island and there he met former Croatian tennis player Ivo Karlovic. After winning Wimbledon, Djokovic returned to his house and has been resting ever since. As Djokovic will not be able to compete in the Montreal Masters due to his vaccination status, he has taken advantage of his free time to rest and recharge his batteries for when he returns to the courts.
"A couple of legends gathered around Top G," Karlovic captioned his Instagram post. Three days after winning Wimbledon, Djokovic opened tennis courts at the Bosnian Archaeological Park. There, Djokovic addresses those who claim that he tried to enter Australia illegally earlier this year.
"People still think that I forced my entry into Australia and that I tried to enter without any papers, permits or exemptions, it is not true," Djokovic stressed. "That was proven at trial, so I would never go to a country where I didn't have permission to travel.
I would love to go 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 the United States and in all the places where I can play."
In addition, Djokovic pointed out that he will go to the United States only if they give him the green light to travel. "I am a professional tennis player, I do not get involved in politics or anything because that does not interested," he said.
Goran Ivanisevic speaks about Djokovic
Speaking during a recent interview with Nova TV, Croatian former player Goran Ivanisevic reflected on his association with Novak Djokovic. "It is an honor and a pleasure," Ivanisevic said about working with Djokovic, adding, "A man who has conquered everything and is still hungry and eager for success.
He has had a difficult, unfair year, many bad things happened to him. He deserved that Wimbledon, in the final there were two of the world's best tennis players on grass, he and Kyrgios," continued Ivanisevic. Ivanisevic reacted to the situation, expressing his displeasure at how the Serb cannot enter the country even if he is healthy and tests negative for coronavirus.
"If you are vaccinated and infected, you can enter America, and if you are unvaccinated and test negative, then you cannot enter America," stressed Ivanisevic.
