when he was initially committed to participating in the Masters 1000 in Montreal, Novak Djokovic finally renounced. Being non-vaccinated against the coronavirus, the Serbian was not allowed to enter Canada.

If he is preparing for the US Open, Novak Djokovic has lost an opportunity to calibrate. The current world number 6, which had registered for the Masters 1000 in Montreal, the first major general rehearsal for the final lifting of the Grand Slam, will not be able to tread the short Quebecers from August 8 to 14. The organizers of the tournament have, in fact, confirmed that Novak Djokovic withdrew his registration in the tournament, whose draw is scheduled for Friday. As on the occasion of Indian Wells and Miami tournaments at the start of the season, the reason for the Novak Djokovic package is obvious. The Serbian, refusing to be vaccinated against the coronavirus and having no intention to have it, was denied entry into the territory of Canada , which makes vaccination a sine qua none condition at the time of across the border.

Djokovic is moving away from 'US Open

while he recently spoke about his desire to play the US Open despite everything, Novak Djokovic sees his hopes drastically reduced . While Canada is strict concerning vaccination, it is the same in the United States. In other words, it is very unlikely to see the Serbian present in Cincinnati from August 14 to 21 and, mainly, on the occasion of the US Open whose kick -off will be given on August 29 on the courts of Flushing Meadows. While the German Oscar Otte also gave up participating in the Masters 1000 in Montreal, that does the business of Benjamin Bonzi and Nick Kyrgios, recent Wimbledon finalist, who take advantage of these packages to enter the table directly. They could find Andy Murray, Vasek Pospisil or Alexis Galarneau, all three benefiting from an invitation from the organizers.
