Tennis star Novak Djokovic, who has won 17 grand slam titles over the course of his career and is currently ranked number one in the world in men’s tennis, has revealed he is “opposed to vaccination.”
He revealed that if getting a future Coronavirus vaccine becomes necessary for him to be able to compete in any upcoming tennis tournaments he would “have to make a decision.”
Last month, former world No. 1 Amelie Mauresmo said the rest of the 2020 tennis season might be wiped out, saying that action should not resume before players can get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“International circuit = players of all nationalities plus management, spectators and people from the 4 corners of the world who bring these events to life. No vaccine = no tennis,” the two-time Grand Slam winner said in a widely shared tweet.
Medical experts have said that vaccines against the respiratory virus would not be ready until next year, raising doubts whether any further tennis tournaments can be played this year.
