Dive In


Sadly, I will not be able to travel to NY this time for US Open. Thank you #NoleFam for your messages of love and support. Good luck to my fellow players! I’ll keep in good shape and positive spirit and wait for an opportunity to compete again. See you soon tennis world!

That’s Novak Djokovic announcing his withdrawal from the US Open on Twitter. The reason: he cannot enter the US without proof of Covid vaccination. Djoko was infamously deported from Australia in January—just before the Australian Open for the very same reason.
