Djoković invariably refuses to disclose whether he is already vaccinated. His father on Serbian TV Prva compared the Australian tennis authorities’ stance on vaccination to “blackmail”.
– Whether we decide to vaccinate or not should be a personal right for each of us. Nobody has the right to interfere with our intimacy – said Srdjan, quoted on the B92 page.
– Considering the blackmail and the whole situation, he probably won’t play (at the Australian Open – ed.). I wouldn’t play, and he is my son. Find out the rest, added Novak’s father.
Djokovic’s favorite tournament
Djoković has won the Melbourne Park event nine times, and it was no different in 2021. Together with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, he holds the record for the number of Grand Slam triumphs – 20.
The Spaniard has already confirmed his presence in Australia. In turn, the Swiss eliminated the injury from the tournament. He will probably return to full strength after another knee surgery in mid-2022.
The Australian Open will start on January 17th. Live coverage on Eurosport and in player.pl.
