Indian Wells "extinguishes" Djokovic's hope, the USA maintains

Australia decided to change the rules for the tennis tournament to allow unvaccinated athletes, giving Novak Djokovic the chance to participate, but something like that doesn't seem to be happening in America. The Serbian returned triumphantly to Melbourne, but his participation in Indian Wells, at least for the moment, remains impossible. The media reports that the tennis player received another negative response from the United States of America, which decided to leave the rules against Covid in force until March.

In such conditions it would be impossible for 'Nole' to participate in the March tournament. Indian Wells Open Tournament Director Tommy Haas said organizers were doing everything they could to help Djokovic compete in the event.

The Serbian managed to win the 22nd Grand Slam in Australia, as he is already aiming to break this record, as Rafael Nadal has currently won the same number of tournaments. Meanwhile, the next Grand Slam takes place in Paris, with the Roland Garros tournament being Nadal's favorite, and there the Serbian will also seek to overtake the Spaniard with titles.
