Boost for Novak Djokovic as France plans to suspend Covid-19 vaccine pass

Dethroned world No 1 Novak Djokovic will get the chance to defend his French Open title when the tournament starts on May 22.

Djokovic has made a personal decision not to get vaccinated and remains the only player in the top men 100 to be unvaccinated. He was deported from Australia and is not able to enter the United States for ATP’s biggest events in Indiana Wells and Miami.

However, with France set to suspend the vaccine pass on March 14, Djokovic will get the chance to defend the title he won last year after beating rival Rafael Nadal in the semis before dispatching Tsitsipas in the finals.

He will be able to play in the Monte-Carlo Masters in April which will be his next tournament after he participated in his first tournament of 2022 in Dubai last week.

It has also been revealed that Serb has parted ways with his long-time coach Marian Vadja. Djokovic was world No 1 until last week when he was dethroned by Russian Daniil Medvedev.
