  • Djokovic was not allowed to play in the Australian Open due to stringent corona vaccination rules.
  • Djokovic may play the French Open in May-June as he was infected in mid-December.

Paris. World number one tennis player Novak Djokovic’s dream of playing in the Australia Open this year could not be fulfilled, but he can be seen participating in this year’s second Grand Slam French Open. Due to the French government’s new rules for corona vaccination, Djokovic can play the French Open in May despite not being vaccinated.

Djokovic was denied permission to play the Australian Open for not following Australia’s stringent corona vaccination rules and was also deported from the country. Initially it seemed that he would not even be able to play the French Open, as a new law in France also does not allow such people to enter stadiums, restaurants, bars or other public places who have not been vaccinated against Corona.

French Sports Minister Roxana M. has said that as soon as the law is passed, vaccination passes will be mandatory for entry into every public place. This would also apply to spectators, French or foreign professionals. Under this law, which came into force from Monday, a person who has given evidence of corona infection in the last six months will not be required to show this pass. This means Djokovic can play the French Open in May-June because he was infected in mid-December. Questions asked by the French Sports Ministry regarding Djokovic’s case remained unanswered.
