The controversy surrounding Novak Djokovic’s entry into Australia for the country’s Open could have an impact on the Serbian tennis player’s participation in the crucial Grand Slam. In 2021, Djokovic rowed trophies and was able to easily enter the United Kingdom (Wimbledon tournament), United States (US Open) and France (Roland Garros) without proving vaccinations.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson commented on Novak Djokovic’s case and advocated that everyone be vaccinated, noting that vaccination presents positive numbers in preventing the development of COVID-19. Johnson calls vaccination “fantastic.”
“It is important for Australian officials to make their own decisions. The only thing I can say on the subject of Novak Djokovic – against whom, of course, I played tennis – is that I believe in vaccination and I find it fantastic ,” said the Prime Minister. Dodging to evaluate the decision of the Court of Australia to allow Serbs to enter the country.
Currently, visitors from the UK are allowed to enter upon presentation of a negative PCR test. Then, a 10-day quarantine is required, during which it will be necessary to conduct two more tests (on the second and eighth days). In London, a negative test on the fifth day frees the visitor from the rest of the quarantine.
Boris Johnson argued, “I believe that everyone should rely on the vaccination programme, because it allows our country to have one of the best economies in Europe and, at the same time, to protect everyone.” (Vaccination) has many benefits.”
Documents presented before Australian justice this Monday in defense of tennis player Novak Djokovic show that the Serb has not been vaccinated. Previously, the lack of vaccination could not be confirmed because Serbs simply refused to present a receipt. It is not yet known whether the explosion of cases of Covid-19 with the discovery of the micron variant will lead to a change in the reception protocols of tennis players at the Grand Slams.
