Novak Djokovic will play at the Australian Open, after the Australians gave him permission for a visa. The Serb could not hide his amazement. "In terms of your next question related to Australia, yes I received the news yesterday morning and I was very, very happy to hear that news," Djokovic told Eurosport.
"It has been a tough year with everything that happened, obviously, in Australia for me and for the people who are close in my life.
This came as a great new year present, I think, and I am looking forward to going to Australia and hopefully having another successful Australian Open, that has been historically my most successful Grand Slam.
I had some of my best memories on that court.
Hopefully, I can make more positive memories there."
Novak Djokovic; I was never against vaccination
In an interview with the BBC, Djokovic spoke about vaccination, as well as the fact that he was never against vaccination.
However, Serbs also advocate that every citizen has the right to decide for himself and that such things should also be tolerated. "I was never against vaccination," he said. “I understand that globally, everyone is trying to put a big effort into handling this virus and seeing, hopefully, an end soon to this virus.
“Vaccination is probably the biggest effort.
I fully respect that. But I’ve always supported the freedom to choose what you put into your body. For me, that is essential, it’s really the principle of understanding what is right and what is wrong for you.
As an elite professional athlete, I’ve always carefully reviewed and assessed everything that comes in from supplements, food, water, anything that comes into my body as fuel.
Based on all the information that I got, I decided against the vaccine”. Now he will have an ideal chance to prove himself again!
