Italian politician: "Coward who prevented Novak Djokovic from playing"

The story of Novak Djokovic and his unwillingness to carry out the anti-Covid vaccination in the major period of health emergency is still very recent and has remained a topic of great discussion in many parts of the world.

The strong stance of the Serbian did not allow him to participate in several tournaments in the beginning of the 2022 season, including the Australian Open and competitions in the USA, where the obligation to enter the country is still in force.

The argument has been the subject of criticism or observations for many public figures, who given the rules in force have not imposed any limitations on athletes not vaccinated before the Italian Open at the Foro Italico, won by the Serb.

The last to take sides and talk about the world case was Vittorio Sgarbi, art critic and currently Mayor of the Italian Municipality of Sutri, who explained: "It is a symbol of freedom and courage.

Nole has not only won a race, but has beaten everyone who tried to stop him from playing. Art is individual, music is individual, sport is individual and neither the homeland nor the general positions of a player can be denied to his ability to prevail.

So, whoever prevented Djokovic from playing in Australia is a coward, it is a government of incapable that claimed to treat him like a sick person. So sick that he arrived in Italy and won as soon as these restrictions invented by inept people were lifted."

Then Sgarbi underlined and added: "We must live in a world of healthy people, the sick must be treated. We must not expect to be contagious and therefore prepare with the Green Pass and various crap of incapable Governments.

As soon as Novak had a chance to be who he is he triumphed. I see a world of miserable, incapable and cowardly. Djokovic is the symbol of freedom, of courage, I am with him and I am happy to support him on this extraordinary occasion."

Nole, in these days, is playing the much awaited Roland Garros 2022. in the first match he defeated the Japanese Yoshihito Nishioka in straight sets.
