Novak Djokovic is ready to risk it all. The top seed player chose to skip the coming up Grand Slams namely French Open and Wimbledon and other tournaments if he is forced to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
The player revealed while giving an interview broadcast Tuesday by the BBC, that he is still not vaccinated and might give up on the other Grand Slams tournaments.
“The price that I am willing to pay,” the top-seeded player stated while talking in the interview about missing the tournaments if needed and forced.
World No. 1 player also cleared that he is not against the vaccinations and is neither part of any anti-vaccination moments but, “everyone has the right to choose, to act or say whatever they feel is appropriate for them.” Serb further said that he is aware of the outcomes he will face if he chooses to not get vaccinated. He won’t be allowed to travel to many cities and counties which will result in missing out on many tennis majors and tournaments for him.
Because of the issue, the Serbian was not allowed to compete at the first Grand Slam of the year where he could have won a record of his 21st Grand Slam which is now owned by Rafael Nadal who has now surpassed him and Roger Federer with the most defeating Daniil Medvedev in final.
