‘Novak Djokovic is not appreciated enough because…’, says ATP ace

Dustin Brown recognized that each country has the right to create its own rules after John Millman’s questioning of the United States for the sanction of Novak Djokovic at the US Open. Djokovic is at risk of missing the US Open due to not having been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The US authorities have recently relaxed some of their measures against COVID-19, since they do not require a negative result when entering the country. However, they still require foreigners to show proof of vaccination when entering the country.

“Thought for Today. I could be covid positive and fly to the US, no questions asked because I’m vaccinated. But someone who has recovered from covid is now covid negative but hasn’t been vaccinated and is denied entry.

I know there are border laws but help me understand,” Millman tweeted. “Each country has its own rules. Why can I walk down the street in Germany with a beer, but not in other countries? Because it’s their rules,” Brown responded to Millman’s tweet.

Earlier this week, Millman argued that it is nonsense to bar Djokovic from entering the United States when local citizens aren’t really following COVID-19 recommendations and guidelines. “I’m out with covid. Just been to the US and didn’t really feel like many were following the recommendations or guidelines there.

Which is fine, but then I don’t see why @DjokerNole can’t come compete,” Millman tweeted earlier. After his first tweet, Millman sent a second to further detail his position. “Let me be clear. If everyone in the country followed the guidelines, then I am in favor of a vaccine entry policy.”

Cerundolo reflects on Djokovic

Speaking on an episode of the ‘3iguales’ tennis podcast, Francisco Cerundolo said that Novak Djokovic should be lauded for being ‘authentic.’ “I don’t see [Novak] Djokovic as a villain.

Quite the contrary. What happens is that people are very much in love with [Roger] Federer and [Rafael] Nadal. Novak says what he feels, it’s authentic,” Cerundolo said. Djokovic is locked in a fight for the most men’s singles Grand Slam titles with Federer and Nadal, and Cerundolo believes that the 21-time Major winner will surpass both eventually.

“Surely, Novak will pass both in Grand Slams won. Djokovic is the one who moves the most to help the players who earn the least. To those who play Futures or challengers,” Cerundolo stated. All signs currently indicate that Novak Djokovic will be denied entry into the United States of America and therefore miss the US Open.
