Antivax declared, Novak Djokovic, continues to bear the consequences. His refusal to be vaccinated against Covid prevents him from entering Canada, and he will therefore not play the Masters 1000 in Montreal which begins on Monday.
This “defection”, announced Thursday by the organizers of the Montreal Masters, comes three weeks before the US Open, which the Serb could also miss for the same reason.
With the United States also requiring people to present proof of vaccination to enter the country, Djoko, who has just won his 21st Grand Slam at Wimbledon, should not be able to take part in the 4th Major of the season in New York (August 29-September 11).
In January 2022, Djokovic was expelled from Australia where he was to participate in the Australian Open after a legal battle over his vaccination status.
