Novak Djokovic will not play in the ATP Masters 1000 events in Indian Wells or Miami, as coronavirus rules prevent him from entering the US.

The Serbian world No.2, has withdrawn from the two prestigious events after the CDC confirmed that he needed to be vaccinated to enter the country.

The 20-time major winner revealed last month that he had not received any coronavirus vaccination. He insisted he would forego big tournaments “because the principles of decision-making on my body are more important than any title or anything else” he said.

He remains true to his word, missing out on two of the biggest tournaments in the ATP Tour calendar.

“While I was automatically listed in the paribas open and miamiopen draw, I knew, given the entry requirements to the US, it would be unlikely I’d be able to travel there,” Djokovic said on his social media account on Thursday morning.

“But as international COVID regulations are always being amended, I wanted to wait and see if anything would change”.

“The CDC confirmed today that regulations are not changing which means I will not be playing in the US”.

“I know my fans are looking forward to seeing me play again and I hope to be back playing for them on the tour soon. Good luck to everyone who is playing in the US in these great tournaments.”

Play began at Indian Wells this week, and Djokovic was named as late as Tuesday. Tournament organisers had indicated they were in touch with his team – and that he would need CDC approval to enter the US.

The Serbian, who played his first and only tournament of the year a fortnight ago in Dubai, was overtaken at the top of the rankings by Daniil Medvedev last week and is the only man in the top 100 who remains unvaccinated.

The 34-year-old Djokovic is likely to remain in Europe and prepare for the clay-court swing, which gets under way next month.

  1. Fantastic, a man for whom health still remains more important than wealth & fame. A wonderful example of a humble guy, a refugee from his homeland bombed, devastated & destroyed by “the Wicked West” – NATO, led by USA & UK!! Those mega capitalist bullies, who bulldozed his peaceful country, without conscience & without blame, shame or consequences, thought that they could destroy him just as easily!
    Sorry guys. NOT POSSIBLE!! 😳🥰
