After winning his 21st Slam at Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic could be forced to sit out the US Open due to the country's entry rules. Taking into account the current regulations imposed by the US government, which require travelers to present a complete vaccination course at the border, the Serbian could not reach New York to compete in the US Open.
Djokovic wanted to thank his followers for the support shown in recent weeks through his Instagram account. The Serbian continues to train steadily in the hope that something will change before the tournament starts. "I just wanted to take a moment to tell everyone how grateful I am to see so many messages of support and love from all over the world these days.
It's special that people connect with my tennis career in such a loving and supportive way and want to keep competing. I am preparing as if I am allowed to compete, while I wait to find out if I will be allowed to travel to the United States.
Cross our fingers". Djokovic has received the support of several American personalities. The last to express her disappointment at the situation generated was US Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, a member of the House of Representatives for the State of New York from 2017 to 2019.
"I wrote a letter to the Secretary of State urging him to let you play the US Open. I'm trying to get more support from Congress as well. I won't stop, don't worry. Let Novak play! Claudia Tenney wrote addressing Djokovic directly on Twitter.
John McEnroe also sided with Djokovic. The former United States champion would like to see the Serb on court at the upcoming US Open.
New details on Nole Djokovic
Recently crowned Wimbledon Champion Novak Djokovic has received more support regarding his participation in the US Open, this time from Louie Gohmert, a representative of the state of Texas.
Speaking to the Daily Caller, the politician expressed his desire for Novak Djokovic to play in the final Grand Slam of the year. "Novak Djokovic overcame war and threats of starvation to become one of the world’s top tennis players, if not the top player," said Gohmert.
He went on to slam the Biden administration for its "cold, heartless, malevolent, scientifically oblivious mentality." Yet, now it appears he may not be able to overcome the Biden Administration’s cold, heartless, malevolent, scientifically oblivious mentality in order to compete in the 2022 U.S. Open,” Gohmert added.
