(Big League Politics) – The top-ranked tennis player in the world is set to be barred from competing in the 2022 Australian Open, with authorities of the draconian Australian government indicating they’re totally unwilling to allow unvaccinated athletes to enter the country.
Mr. Djokovic has declined to reveal his vaccination status, rather than openly state he’s choosing not to get the vaccine. He’s won the Australian Open nine times already, a record for any player in the annual tournament.
Djokovic is considered one of the greatest tennis players of all time, and restricting him from playing in a grand slam tournament would entail a sports ban of one of the world’s most prominent and successful athletes from competition.
“I will not reveal my status, whether I have been vaccinated or not. It is a private matter and an inappropriate inquiry,” Djokovic told of Serbian daily Blic earlier this year when vaccine controversies began in the tennis world. “People go too far these days in taking the liberty to ask questions and judge a person.”
Tennis insiders have estimated that approximately 65% of male players and 60% of female players are vaccinated, indicating that almost half of both player pools will be restricted from competing in the Australian Open.
Djovokic had won the 2021 Australian Open, raising serious questions about the integrity of a grand slam tournament that bars the incumbent champion from competing.
Observers from around the democratic world have questioned what they see as tyranny from the Australian government, with the former prison colony’s policies increasingly resembling fascism. Residents of the island continue to face constant confinement to their homes, pervasive police harassment, forcible suppression of protests, and “health” restrictions that government officials claim will be permanent.
