Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia due to him being unvaccinated. Although the world No.1 was given a medical exemption before he flew to Australia, the government officials decided to cancel Djokovic’s VISA and deport him back home.
Djokovic who is still not vaccinated could find it very difficult to make it to any of the three remaining grand slams. Tennis legend Tim Henman also said, “It’s very difficult for Novak Djokovic to continue his professional career if he’s not double vaccinated.”
Tim Henman URGES Novak Djokovic to get vaccinated
Novak Djokovic is one of the greatest tennis players to have ever played the game. He has been able to achieve things that players could only dream of achieving. The 20-grand slam champion is an inspiration for youngsters and has millions of fans all over the world.
Djokovic is a global star and he needs to take some right decisions to make it to the remaining three grand slams. He could leave all the hardships behind if he decides to get vaccinated. However, if he decides to continue his professional career without getting vaccinated then he will be facing a lot of problems in the coming times.
Tennis Legend Tim Henman weighed in and said, “When you reflect on the Djokovic fiasco, it was a shambles, really, There were no winners. It wasn’t good for Tennis Australia, I don’t think it reflected well on the government. Obviously, Djokovic not being able to play in the Australian Open, it’s disappointing for the event, the fans, and Djokovic himself. Fingers crossed that we don’t have to witness something like that in the future.”
“What does Djokovic do next? Because it would seem very difficult for him to continue with his professional career if he’s not double vaccinated, it would seem that he’s going to be pretty limited with the countries that he can get into. I would emphasize, it’s absolutely his prerogative, whether any individual wants to get vaccinated or not is his or her decision, but certainly as a tennis fan and seeing what Djokovic has been able to achieve on the court, I very much hope we see him back competing soon.” added Henman.
