McEnroe analyzed: «I think it would be crazy not to allow Novak Djokovic to enter the United States.. I got vaccinated against the Coronavirus and I have always been in favor of the vaccine, but I respect those who have decided otherwise.
He had already found the decision to expel him from Australia last year crazy. He could not play in the USA in 2021 and he could not come in 2022, it seems ridiculous to me. It would be absurd if he could not play the Indian Wells and Miami Masters 1000 or any other tournament in the United States, especially the US Open.
I really hope this situation gets fixed soon.In a press conference during the ATP in Buenos Aires last week, Francisco Cerundolo had nice words for Djokovic: «I respect him a lot and I think it’s a great thing for tennis that he continues to be so competitive.
If we want to be able to beat him, we have to keep working hard. Despite being 35 years old, he won the Australian Open quite comfortably.»
