Since last year and Novak Djokovic's decision that he does not want to be vaccinated, many reactions have followed. Many believed that what Djokovic is doing is wrong and that he will only harm himself. However, Djokovic has his own principles that he sticks to and does not want to change.
The criticism directed at Djokovic was so far-reaching that some even called him the leader of an anti-vax movement. In an interview with Slobodna Dalmacija, Goran Ivanisevic, who is also his coach, revealed the potential outcome regarding Djokovic.
Ivanisevic respects the decisions of Djokovic and believes that others should respect his decisions.
“I don’t know about the US Open [entry], it’s difficult,” Ivanisevic said for Slobodna Dalmacija.
“I am more optimistic that I will get an invitation and win Umag than that they will let him to the US Open.
They don’t ask for vaccination there, but as a country they are closed to the unvaccinated, for now he can’t enter the country.
I respect and appreciate him, he made a decision that he will not change.
When they proclaim him to be a leader, to have a bad influence on people, that is wrong.
He doesn’t want to get vaccinated, he doesn’t want to introduce it into his body, and he never told others not to get vaccinated.
I respect and support his decision."
Ivanisevic believes that some things went beyond all measure and that too much terror was perpetrated against Djokovic. It seems like things are slowly calming down, but nothing is over yet.
Djokovic still has the same ambitions and we know what his next goal is. "I hope these decisions are reversed," he said. "People infected in Australia, Roland Garros and Wimbledon and nothing to anyone.
"There are so many contradictions, I was vaccinated, it’s not a problem for me, but… for two and a half years they terrorise us, when you’re infected it’s like you have scabies, they throw you and the team out.
We were on the wall of shame”. About 15 days ago, Djokovic once again confirmed his decision, which he made a long time ago. "I'm not vaccinated and I'm not planning to get vaccinated so the only good news I can have is them removing the mandated green vaccine card or whatever you call it to enter United States or exemption," Djokovic said Sunday.
"I don't know. I don't think exemption is realistically possible. If that is possibility, I don't know what exemption would be about. "I don't know. I don't have much answers there."
