, Novak Djokovic Denies Being Anti-Vax Despite Tournament Bans

Tennis star Novak Djokovic has made it clear that he was never "anti-vax" despite being barred from several tournaments for not getting the Covid jab.

Djokovic Wins Fourth US Open Title

Over the weekend, Djokovic secured his fourth US Open victory by defeating Daniil Medvedev in straight sets. This win marks his third Grand Slam victory in 2023.

Banned from US Open and Australian Open

Last year, Djokovic was not allowed to participate in the US Open and Australian Open due to his choice of not receiving the Covid vaccine. He was unable to enter the United States and faced a similar situation in Australia.

Claiming His Choice, Not Anti-Vax Stance

During an interview with John McEnroe aired after his US Open win, Djokovic expressed that he was never against the Covid vaccine but rather exercising his freedom to choose not to have it. He emphasized that many people did not feel like they had a choice in the matter.

Feeling Like a "Villain of the World"

Djokovic revealed that the bans he faced made him feel like a "villain of the world." He simply wanted to compete and play tennis.

Success in Australia and France

Despite the setbacks, Djokovic had a successful year with wins at the Australian Open and the French Open. He clinched his third French Open title and reached the final at Wimbledon but lost to Carlos Alcaraz in a thrilling five-set match.
