‘Fingers crossed’: Novak Djokovic’s telling Classic message amid US Open drama

Novak Djokovic has signalled he still holds hope that he will be granted an exemption to play at the US Open after telling fans he hasn’t given up hope.

Djokovic recently won his first grand slam of 2022 after his historic triumph at Wimbledon against Aussie Nick Kyrgios in the final.
However, following the grand slam in London, the three-time US Open winner admitted it was most likely his last grand slam tournament of the year.

The Wimbledon champ reaffirmed he wouldn’t be getting vaccinated in order to play tennis with unvaccinated travellers restricted from entering the US.

“I’m not vaccinated and I’m not planning to get vaccinated so the only good news I can have is them removing the mandated green vaccine card or whatever you call it to enter United States or exemption,” Djokovic said.

“I don’t know. I don’t think exemption is realistically possible. If that is possibility, I don’t know what exemption would be about. I don’t know. I don’t have much answers there.”

While Djokovic’s comments about the exemption raised eyebrows, US Open officials released a statement this month and clarified that they will not seek special treatment for the World No.7.

Despite the setbacks, Djokovic posted a video of himself training hard.
Following lots of comments, the World No.7 thanked his fan for the support and said he was still training in the hope he could play the US Open.
