Djokovic withdraws from US tennis tournaments due to vaccine rules

Novak Djokovic has withdrawn from the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells and the Miami Open as coronavirus rules prevent him from entering the United States.

The Serbian has pulled out of the two prestigious events after the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) confirmed that he needed to be vaccinated to enter the country.

The 20-time major winner revealed last month that he had not received any coronavirus vaccination, insisting he would forego big tournaments “because the principles of decision-making on my body are more important than any title or anything else”.

He remains true to his word, missing out on two of the biggest tournaments in the ATP Tour calendar.
