John McEnroe repeated his belief regarding Novak Djokovic’s participation in the US Open 2022. John explained: “We have to find a way for Novak Djokovic to participate in the US OPEN. How is it possible that a champion with his characteristics cannot play the tournament? He just won Wimbledon.”
McEnroe has called the idea of excluding Djokovic from the Grand Slam to be held at the end of August in the United States crazy. The former American tennis player, although he opposed Nole’s choice not to get vaccinated, added however: “I do not agree with his choice not to get vaccinated, but we are saying that because of his choice he cannot play the US Open”
Immediately afterwards he recalled that it wouldn’t be the first time the Serb had been banned from a Grand Slam tournament: “I mean, come on. He was already kicked out of Australia for the same reason and here we are again!” Next, McEnroe referred to the USTA: “There is absolutely no reason, at this point in the pandemic, not to allow Djokovic to play the US Open 2022.
The US government and the USTA must work together to allow him to play. If unvaccinated US players can play, they should. You also have to allow Djokovic to play. He is one of the legends of this sport. Make it happen, USTA!” John McEnroe is one of the most gifted and controversial talents in tennis history.
Histrionic and complicated character, but also brilliant and inimitable as a game technique. He made the history of this sport and fans always remember him with great pleasure. His sporting life has recently been celebrated in the film McEnroe v Borg, which reviews all the moments of one of the most exciting sporting rivalries in history.
Unless there is a huge turnaround, Novak Djokovic should miss the US Open, the United States not allowing non-vaccinated people to enter their territory. Inevitably disappointed, Goran Ivanisevic nevertheless respects his player’s position and defends him firmly in the face of criticism.
“I respect and appreciate him, he made a decision that he will not change. When they proclaim him as a leader, as someone having a bad influence on people, it is false. He doesn’t want to get vaccinated, he doesn’t want to put it into his body, and he’s never told others not to get vaccinated. I respect and support his decision,” said the Croatian coach in comments reported by Tennis365.
