In a bit of a startling revelation, Novak Djokovic has admitted that he is “opposed to vaccination” and “wouldn’t want to be forced by someone” to take a coronavirus vaccine should it become available.
Tennis is currently on an enforced hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the powers that be have pencilled in July 13 as a possible return date.
However, many believe that we might not see any tennis until a vaccine becomes available.
In a Facebook Live session with fellow Serbian players, Djokovic disclosed that he is not in favour of “taking a vaccine in order to be able to travel”.
“Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel,” he said.
“But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision. I have my own thoughts about the matter and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know.
“Hypothetically, if the season was to resume in July, August or September, though unlikely, I understand that a vaccine will become a requirement straight after we are out of strict quarantine and there is no vaccine yet.”
