Novak Djokovic Leads Opposition To Covid-19 Vaccination

Novak Djokovic, the president of Association Tennis Professional (ATP) players council and World no 1 Tennis player has vehemently reject any idea of imposing covid-19 vaccination on people; especially the tennis players.

“Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel,” the world No 1 said in a live Facebook chat with several fellow Serbian athletes on Sunday. “But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision. I have my own thoughts about the matter and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know.”

“Hypothetically, if the season was to resume in July, August or September, though unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement straight after we are out of strict quarantine and there is no vaccine yet.”

Although last month, former French tennis player and former world female No1 Amelie Mauresmo suggested that tennis should not allowed to resume until a vaccine is available for Covid-19, something that most scientists believe is at least a year away.

“International circuit = players of all nationalities plus management, spectators and people from the 4 corners of the world who bring these events to life. No vaccine = no tennis,” the two-time grand slam winner said in a widely shared tweet.
