After it was confirmed that players will be required to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in order to enter the Australian Open, Novak Djokovic declined to say whether he will compete.
Following his ATP Finals loss to Alexander Zverev, the world No. 1 was questioned if he will compete in Melbourne. Djokovic answered, “We’ll see.”
When pressed further, the Serbian added: “I haven’t been talking to them [the organisers]. I was just waiting to hear what the news is going to be. Now that I know, we’ll just have to wait and see.”
The nine-time Australian Open winner has previously criticised vaccine mandates, saying earlier this week: “The freedom of choice is essential for everyone, whether it’s me or somebody else. Doesn’t really matter whether it’s vaccination or anything else in life. You should have the freedom to choose – in this particular case, what you want to put in your body.”
