Djokovic's trouble increased: World number-1 player also difficult to play French Open, France made new law on Corona vaccine World No. 1 tennis player Novak Djokovic's troubles are increasing. After being out of the first Grand Slam Australian Open of the year, he is now in danger of being out of the French Open as well. The reason for this is that Novak has not yet got the corona vaccine.
Due to this, Djokovic's visa was canceled twice at the Australian Open and he was sent out of the country. Now the same rule has been implemented in the French Open that only vaccinated players and staff will be given entry in the tournament. According to the news agency AFP, France's new vaccine law has been approved by the parliament there on 16 January.
Under this, people will have to show a certificate of vaccine to go to public places like restaurants, cafes, cinemas, and long-distance trains. The French Sports Ministry said, 'The rule is simple. As soon as the law comes into force, the vaccine pass will become mandatory.
Health passes are already in force at workplaces. These rules apply to everyone whether spectators or players. This will remain in force till further orders. As far as the French Open is concerned, this tournament is to be held in May. Till then things can change and we hope then things will be right. We will see then, but no relief will be given to anyone.
After being deported from Australia, Djokovic left for Serbia on the morning of 17 January via Dubai. Vaccination is not mandatory for passengers in Dubai, but they are required to show a negative RT-PCR report before boarding the flight. The Australian government called Djokovic a public threat.
Djokovic was corona infected before coming to the Australia Open tournament, despite this, he participated in several events in his country Serbia last month. Djokovic himself admitted that he had met a journalist despite being positive. He also made mistakes in the immigration form to enter Australia. Due to this, his visa was canceled as soon as he reached Australia.
