Novak Djokovic withdraws from the US Open. He is unvaccinated against Covid-19 and not allowed to receive a visa and enter the country to play. This, according to our international team of doctors, is how he is able to play tennis again. Withdrawal is the only path which allows him to play the upcoming grass court season.
This is the first time a male Grand Slam winner with the virus is withdrawn from a Grand Slam tournament.
Djokovic has also withdrawn from his semifinal against Dominic Thiem today in Hamburg.
So, Djokovic is not able to play the US Open and will miss the grass court season. It will be a major loss for the calendar and a loss to sports science and practice.
