Greg Rusedski took to his Twitter profile to express his regret over Novak Djokovic’s absence from the US Open. “It’s a shame that the strongest player in the world is going to give up two Grand Slams in 2022,” Gregg wrote of the legendary Serbian champion.
Radio host Clay Travis sided with Nole: “True in principle, Novak Djokovic has missed two majors this year. We’re talking about two tournaments that he’s the favorite to win. Djokovic was the one to beat. Both the Australian Open and the US Open, and probably at least one.” He would have won the cup.
Considering that hardcourt is his favorite surface, he could have won both titles and climbed atop the all-time Grand Slam rankings. He proved once again that he is a brave and persistent person. At the same time, I can only condemn the policy of the United States government.
There is no medical reason to justify the choice not to enter.
Novak Djokovic has been forced to miss two Grand Slams this year. The choice not to vaccinate against the corona virus has not only had a great impact on the program, but has also caused great damage to the image.
The former world No. 1 capped his season by winning Wimbledon for the seventh time in his career. Not only did Nole match his idol Pete Sampras, but he also managed to narrow the ranking of majors ahead of Rafael Nadal.
The 21-time Grand Slam champion had hoped to play the final US Open, but the rules on the border have not changed. A few hours before the draw, the Serbian veteran announced that he would have to miss the final race of the season as he was unable to travel to the United States.
Subsequently, USAA announced that it would no longer be able to apply for an exemption in support of Djokovic. The US Federation has responded to the serious allegations made by Tennis Sandgren by saying that it did nothing to indirectly help Novak.
