Novak Djokovic remains firm, and inflexible, on his positions regarding the Covid vaccine even if it costs him, as it would now unless the rules change in the meantime, participation in the US Open.

The United States authorities, in fact, have kept the vaccination obligation for those who want to enter the country, and this would prevent Djokovic from playing the last Grand Slam of the season.

When asked, today in a press conference ahead of Wimbledon, if he remained on the positions that already cost him the

expulsion from Australia

and the lack of participation in the Open on the Melbourne fields, Djokovic replied with a rather firm "yes" .

"To date, taking into account the circumstances - added the Serbian champion -, I am not allowed to enter the States. I would like to go and play there, but for the moment it is not possible. So all this is a further motivation to do well. here in Wimbledon ".

"There is not much I can do - he said again -, so today I give up. It depends on the American government, and not on me".
