‘Bad Memory For Everyone’: Djokovic Uneasy About Australian Open Quarantine

Posted by

Even if completely vaccinated, the thought of undergoing a fortnight of harsh quarantine has surfaced as a major concern for Novak Djokovic as he considers whether or not to compete in the Australian Open.

Despite the fact that Djokovic has never publicly declared his vaccination status, it has been widely believed that he is a vaccine skeptic for the 2022 edition.

However, a full English-version transcript of Djokovic’s in-depth interview with Serbian daily newspaper Blic published last week has leaked, revealing that the 34-year-old has travel anxieties — for all players.

“The main problem is that if you’re on a plane with a person who is [Covid-19] positive, whether they’re vaccinated or not, you automatically [have] to stay in your room for 14 days,” Djokovic said.

“That happened to Viktor Troicki in January this year. Not only him but 70 players had to be in [hard] quarantine. I’ve talked to a lot of players and that’s remained a bad memory for everyone. So I don’t know if I’ll go to Australia. I don’t know what’s going on. Currently, the situation isn’t good at all.”
