Novak Djokovic sets the record straight

Following his triumph at Wimbledon on Sunday, July 10, Novak Djokovic, at the opening of a tennis complex in the archaeological park in Visoko, Bosnia, spoke to the press about the possibility of participating in the Us Open in August: “I am a professional tennis player and I want to be wherever I can play. I don’t care about politics. I have my own opinions and what I want is for everyone to have the freedom to choose what is best for themselves. I would like people to at least respect my decision. If I am allowed to, I will be in New York. If not, it’s not the end of the world.”

The Serb, who has not yet been vaccinated against Covid-19, then returned to the controversy surrounding his entry into Australia for the first Slam of the year: “Many people still think that I entered Australia without permission, but that is not true and I proved it in court. I would never enter a country that does not want me and would not give me permission. And I hope to go back in January. I love Australia and I want to go back. And that’s where I had my best Grand Slam results. I hope to be there.”
