Novak Djokovic, the veteran Serbian tennis star, does not regret his refusal to obtain a vaccine against Covid-19 disease, despite his loss at the top of the world rankings of professional players.
Djokovic spent 380 weeks at the top of the world rankings, but was unable to participate in the first two thousand-point Masters tournaments this season (Miami and Indian Wells), after his request for special permission to travel to the United States of America was denied.
The United States is currently preventing visitors without a vaccine from entering its territory, and it is scheduled to cancel this decision next May.
With Djokovic, who won 22 Grand Slam titles, unable to participate, young Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz regained the top of the world rankings after winning the Indian Wells Championship.
“I have no regrets,” Djokovic told CNN. “It’s a pity that I couldn’t play in Indian Wells and Miami. I love those tournaments. I’ve had a lot of success there, but at the same time, this was the decision I made out of inspiration.” From my conscience, despite the possibility of not participating in the two competitions.
“I hope the current situation will change later this year for the US Open. This is the most important tournament for me on American soil,” Djokovic added.
And the Serbian star explained: “I have learned through life that regret only hinders you and makes you live in the past, and I do not want to do that. I also do not want to live a lot in the future. But of course, I think about the future and try to create a better future.”
Djokovic concluded his remarks: “Dignity, integrity, and remaining true to myself, my beliefs, and my rights are above everything for me.”
