Djokovic is out of the French Open if he doesn't get vaccinated.


Tennis player Novak Djokovic walks through Melbourne Airport before getting on a plane after the Federal Court upheld a government decision to cancel his visa to play in the Australian Open. This happened in Melbourne, Australia, on January 16, 2022.


When Djokovic tried to get his visa back, the Serbian lost in court. On Sunday, he was deported from Australia before the Australian Open. A law in Australia says that Djokovic can’t get a new visa for three years, so he won’t be able to add to his nine Melbourne Park titles. The government has left the door open for him to come back next year, though.


New law in France require people to have vaccination certificates


Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal, both from Spain, are the world’s number one and number two tennis players, respectively. The world number one, on the other hand, may not be able to play in the French Open as things stand. No one in France will be able to get around a new law that was passed on Sunday that requires people to have vaccination certificates before they can go into places like restaurants and movie theaters. The French Sports Ministry said on Monday that there would be no exemption from the new law. There is, however, a good chance that Djokovic will play in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships from February.


As of now, unvaccinated people can come to England, but they must stay inside for 10 days. This means he may also be able to compete there as well.


An Open representative said last week that the year’s final major would follow rules set by the New York City Department of Health, which is in charge of public health. People from other countries who fly to the United States have had to be fully vaccinated since November and show proof before they can get on a plane, with a few exceptions. Djokovic might not be able to get into the United States because of this. Italy has very strict anti-COVID rules, which could cause problems for him before the Italian Open in Rome in May because of that.
