Tennis, good news for Djokovic from the United States
The month drawing to a close saw the United States as the great champions of world tennis, given the two major tournaments of these weeks. First the Masters 1000 in Indian Wells and then the one in Miami that ends on Sunday. Two important demonstrations that Novak Djokovic could not take part in, because it is known that he has not been vaccinated against Covid.
Now, however, things are destined to change, given that the US Senate has decreed ending the national emergency and thus halting all measures against the pandemic. Among them is precisely the one that touched Djokovic, or the ban on entry to the United States for unvaccinated foreigners. Only the green light from President Joe Biden awaits.
Djokovic has been absent from American soil since the 2021 US Open final, which he lost to Daniel Medvedev, who prevented him from completing the four Grand Slams. In the same year, the Serb has already won the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The latter beat Matteo Berrettini in the final. Now he will be able to return to the US Open this year.
With the provision promoted by the Republicans and approved by the US Senate today, the United States is in fact prepared to consider an emergency because of the ended pandemic. President Biden has no plans to oppose this new measure, Democratic Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has made clear. So, the United States is about to reopen for Djokovic.
