Novak Djokovic will play the Australian Open despite not being vaccinated

Novak Djokovic has publicly shown its rejection of vaccines against COVID-19, a situation that has generated countless criticisms. It was said that the Serbian would not be able to play several tennis tournaments in the season if he did not inform if he was immunized, however, the player seems to have won the first battle to the restrictions when his participation in the Australian Open was confirmed.

‘Nole’ published a photograph before heading to Melbourne to contest the first Grand Slam of 2022 and in the message he assures that he received a “medical exemption”.

“I had a fantastic quality time with my loved ones over the holidays and today I am heading to Australia with a waiver permit. Let’s go 2022!”wrote the number 1 tennis player in the world.

Everything points to the fact that the Australian Government gave Djokovic a special authorization to defend his title at the Australian Open and become the biggest winner of big tournaments in history: 21.

It should be noted that in the Oceanic country no foreign citizen can enter if they do not have the complete vaccination scheme. However, the authorities and organizers of the tournament will make an exception, prioritizing the issue of sponsorship and attractiveness, before the safety of the citizens.

Is Novak Djokovic vaccinated?

The Balkan athlete has always spoken out against vaccines and has refused to confirm whether he has been immunized against the coronavirus, so many assume that he did not receive any doses.
