Novak Djokovic could enter in USA! The Serbian tennis player has had a difficult year due to his decision not to get vaccinated. The first storm came in Australia, when the former world number one showed up in Melbourne with a medical exemption: a pass accepted by the tournament, but not by the country.
In fact, a Melbourne court ruling sent Djokovic back to the border and, subsequently, to Serbia. The subsequent programming, therefore, was modified on the basis of the decisions of the States on the anti-Covid legislation.
Few glimmers in the eastern part of the world, while in the West there were no problems: present at the Roland Garros and Wimbledon, as well as in Rome and Madrid. A new problem, however, seemed to arise ahead of the North American season.
The legislation in force in the United States stated that the complete vaccination cycle was mandatory in order to enter to USA. It seemed, therefore, excluded the presence of Djokovic in Cincinnati, but above all in Flushing Meadows, where last year the dream of obtaining the Calendar Grand Slam was shattered.
However, things have changed and the glimmers of light for the Serbian Champion are visible.
The new guidelines
According to the Center for Disease Control press release, the same guidelines for action will be applied to both vaccinated and unvaccinated people in the United States.
It is, in fact, the new legislation for which there will no longer be differentiation of the two subjects due to the spread of the Covid virus in the same way. With this new directive, therefore, Novak Djokovic could have the right to enter the United States.
It may be late to return to the Masters 1000 in Cincinnati, but there seems to be all the conditions for the Serb to return to the Grand Slam that he won for three times. A Grand Slam that would allow him to equal Rafael Nadal in the number of titles, which would allow him to climb the rankings and chase away the bad memories collected last year.
