Stefanos Tsitsipas, the world’s fourth-ranked tennis player, claimed on Thursday that Novak Djokovic had endangered the Australian Open and made other players “look like idiots” by traveling to Australia without a vaccination.
After arriving in Australia without the proper vaccinations, Novak Djokovic placed the Australian Open in jeopardy and made other tennis players “look like fools” claimed world number four Stefanos Tsitsipas.
It’s still unclear what will happen to the Australian government’s decision to revoke the vaccination skeptic’s visa and expel him from the country for breaching Covid procedures.
For sure he has been playing by his own rules,” Tsitsipas said in an interview with Indian broadcaster WION.
It takes a lot of daring to do and (is) putting a Grand Slam at risk… I don’t think many players would do that.
Nearly everyone at the Melbourne event, according to Tsitsipas, who lost to Djokovic in last year’s final at the French Open, was vaccinated.
According to him, “some opted to pursue their route which sort of makes the majority appear like they’re all idiots.” he remarked.
As a consequence of a supposedly positive PCR test result on December 16, Novak Djokovic arrived at Melbourne airport with a vaccine exemption on January 5.
As of Thursday, no decision has been taken on whether to cancel Novak Djokovic’s visa for a second time, according to Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
Despite this, Djokovic was given a spot in the Australian Open’s first-round draw the next day.
There are doubts about his training and physical health for the two-week event after he was forced to spend four nights in the detention center. Even if he is permitted to remain.
