Unvaccinated Wimbledon Champ Novak Djokovic Out of US Open

Serbian tennis star and 2022 Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic will not be on the court at next month’s U.S. Open in New York because he is still not vaccinated against COVID-19.

Although he was ranked seventh on the list of entries for the major championship, to be held from Aug. 29 to Sept. 11 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York, tournament organizers said Wednesday that players must be fully vaccinated to participate.

”The U.S. Open does not have a vaccination mandate in place for players, but it will respect the U.S. government’s position regarding travel into the country for unvaccinated non-U.S. citizens,” the organization said on its website.
