Novak Djokovic, world No. 1 in men’s tennis, will be able to participate in the US Open this year, which he could not run due to the Corona 19 vaccination problem last year.
The US government announced on the 2nd (local time) that it will change its quarantine policy so that foreigners who have not been vaccinated for Corona 19 can enter their country from the 12th.
As a result, Djokovic, who did not receive the Corona 19 vaccine, opened the way to compete in the US Open in two years.
This year’s US Open kicks off on August 28 at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, USA.
The US Open is the tournament that Djokovic has won three times in his career.
The last time they won was in the 2018 competition.
Djokovic entered Australia in January of last year to compete in the Australian Open, but was virtually expelled for not having been vaccinated against Corona 19 and was unable to compete in the tournament.
He subsequently missed the US Open last year as he was barred from entering the United States for the same reason. 메이저사이트
Participation in the men’s professional tennis ATP Masters 1000 tournament held in the United States in March, such as the Indian Wells BNP Paribas Open and the Miami Open, was also canceled.
In February, Djokovic requested special entry permission from the US immigration authorities to compete in major US competitions, but it is known that it did not go as planned.
In the case of the Australian Open held in January of this year, the Australian government eased the Corona 19 vaccination regulations when foreigners entered, so Djokovic was able to go out, and Djokovic even won the championship.
Djokovic did not participate in the ongoing Madrid Open due to injury, but will participate in the French Open, which starts at the end of this month, and will try to win the men’s singles title in his 23rd major tournament.
Djokovic shares the record for most major men’s singles titles with Rafael Nadal, with 22.
