Unvaccinated Novak Djokovic lets BBC know that he could skirt French Open, Wimbledon


Novak Djokovic said in a meeting broadcast Tuesday that he is ready to avoid the French Open and Wimbledon if inoculation against the Covid is expected for him to play.

Addressing the BBC, the 20-time Grand Slam champion said he isn’t immunized and added that missing the following two majors, where he is the reigning champ, and different competitions is “the value that I will pay.

I comprehend the results of my choice, Djokovic said. I comprehend that not being inoculated today, you know, I can’t head out to the vast majority of the competitions right now.

  • The 34-year-old Serb said he isn’t against immunizations yet trusts in the opportunity to pick what you put into your body. Furthermore, for my purposes, that is fundamental.
  • I’m attempting to be in line with my body however much I can, he said, adding that he has forever been cautious with regards to all that he ingests. In light of all the data that I got, I chose not to take the immunization, starting today.

Inquired as to whether he would be ready to miss the French Open in May, he said: That is the value that I will pay.

Djokovic, be that as it may, removed himself from against immunization campaigners. Some asserted him as their legend when he was ousted from Australia in January. That followed his losing bid to remain in the country to protect his Australian Open title in spite of not being inoculated against COVID-19.

I have never said that I am essential for that development, Djokovic said, adding everybody has the option to pick, to act, or get out whatever ever they feel is suitable for them.
