Novak Djokovic says opposition to vaccinations could hinder his return to competitive tennis.

“Personally, I am against vaccination and I would not want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine to be able to travel,” said world No. 1 on Sunday in a live Facebook chat with several fellow athletes Serbians. “But if it becomes mandatory, what will happen? I’m going to have to make a decision. I have my own thoughts on the matter and if these thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know.

“In theory, if the season were to resume in July, August or September, although unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement immediately after our exit from strict quarantine and there is no vaccine yet . “

“International circuit = players of all nationalities plus management, spectators and people from all over the world who bring these events to life. No vaccine = no tennis, “said the double grand slam winner in a widely shared tweet.
