Greg Rusedski is still upset about Novak Djokovic’s two Slam bans




Through his Twitter profile, Greg Rusedski expressed his regret at the absence of Novak Djokovic at the US Open. Regarding the well-known issue involving the Serbian champion, Greg wrote: “It’s a real shame that the strongest player in the world had to give up two Grand Slams in 2022.”

Radio host Clay Travis also sided with Nole: “True to his principles, Novak Djokovic has missed two majors this year. We’re talking about two tournaments where he would have been the favorite to win. Djokovic would have been the man to beat at both Australian Open and US Open and it is likely that he would have won at least one title.

Given that hard court is his favorite surface, he could have lifted both trophies and stretched the all-time Grand Slam standings. He has once again proven that he is a brave and consistent man. At the same time, I can only condemn the policy of the American government.

There is no medical reason that justifies the choice not to admit him.”

Novak’s problems

Novak Djokovic was forced to miss two Grand Slams this year. His choice not to be vaccinated against the Coronavirus had a profound impact on his programming, as well as causing serious damage to his image.

The former world number 1 lifted her season by winning Wimbledon for the seventh time in her career. Not only has Nole matched his idol Pete Sampras, but he has also narrowed the gap separating him from Rafael Nadal in the all-time Majors rankings.

The 21-time Grand Slam champion hoped until the end that he could play the US Open, but the rules at the border have not been changed. Hours before the draw, the Serbian veteran announced that he would have to forgo his final major of the season as he was unable to travel to the United States.

Subsequently, the USTA announced that it could not apply for a waiver in favor of Djokovic. The American Federation reacted indirectly to the heavy accusations of Tennys Sandgren, who accused it of having done nothing to help Novak.
