Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic are two great tennis players and living legends of white sports. However, despite being great friends and sharing the same passion, there are issues on which they do not coincide and one of them has to do precisely with the issue of coronavirus vaccines.

About, Rafael Nadal He was recently interviewed at an event and gave his point of view on this issue. As if that were not enough, the manacorí did not hesitate to send a clear hint to his colleague.
“I understand that there are people who do not want to be vaccinated, but it seems a bit selfish to me. We have suffered a lot“He began by declaring ‘Rafa’ Nadal. Then, he added the following:”We do not know one hundred percent the effects of vaccines, but we do have to trust the doctors, what we do know is the effect of the virus if we are not vaccinated“.
The issue did not end there. “It seems that we are today the country [en España] the least the virus affects and I think it is because we have a large part of the population vaccinated“emphasized the winner of 20 Grand Slam trophies.
