No activity: Djokovic, by not getting vaccinated against COVID-19, will not go to the Montreal Masters 1000

Novak Djokovic’s negative stance on COVID-19 vaccination has not changed and he will continue to pay the price in the latter part of the 2022 season (he had been sidelined from the Australian Open earlier in the year). This Thursday it was known that the Serbian will not participate in the Masters 1000 in Montreal, due to the restrictions of the Government of Canada.

The arrival of ‘Nole’ on the North American tour had already been questioned for a few months, since he did not have the required information on receiving the drug that fights the coronavirus. Finally, before the firm conditioning of the authorities, the 21-time Grand Slam champion decided to withdraw from the Canadian event, which will begin on August 10.

In the same way, it is likely that Djokovic will not be present at the Cincinnati Masters and, if the current scenario continues, he will not attend the US Open either. For now, the current number six in the ATP ranking will continue to train on his own, waiting for something new so that he can return to activity.

Let us remember that the last match that Novak played was on July 10 at the Center Court in London, in the Wimbledon final. That time, the 35-year-old tennis player defeated Nick Kyrgios 3-1 and accumulated 21 Grand Slam trophies, one behind Rafael Nadal, who is the greatest winner in history (22). If absent from the US Open, the “Fiera” could extend his record.

Precisely, the Spaniard until now is one of the main attractions of the Masters 1000 in Montreal, having positively progressed from the abdominal injury he suffered in England. Another of the figures that will compete in the event in Canada is Andy Murray.
